Djock shock in Melbourne


South Korea's Hyeon Chung sensationally beat Novak Djokovic at the Australian Open as the six-time champion struggled with injury on Monday.

Chung, 21, won 7-6 (7-4) 7-5 7-6 (7-3). He created history, becoming then first Korean player to reach the last eight at a Grand Slam.

Chung is to face Tennys Sandgren next, though he was helped by Djokovic not being fully fit. He ad treatment to his right elbow after the first set and was visibly in pain at times.

"Unfortunately, it's not great," he said. "Kind of end of the first set it started hurting more, so I had to deal with it until the end of the match.

"I was hoping I can go through [the tournament]," he added.

"But I don't want to talk about my injury tonight because then I'm taking away Chung's victory, the credit that he deserves."
