Davis staged a thrilling fightback in her fourth round clash with World No.1 Simona Halep before going down 4-6 6-4 15-13 in a three hours and 44 minute epic.
Simona Halep was forced to save three match points as she survived a major scare against the USA's Lauren Davis in a match that lasted just short of four hours on Rod Laver Arena.
Although Bouchard, the last Canadian man or woman at this year's tournament, broke Halep's serve twice in the first set, Halep never appeared threatened as she dominated on defense against Bouchard - who held serve only once the entire match. So long. I never played a third set so long.
"I was very happy I could stay and win it".
"I'm nearly dead", Halep, a 26-year-old Romanian, said after her victory. "I don't know how my ankle is because I can't feel it anymore".
The grand slam hopeful went on to level the match and she looked set to close it out at 5-4, and again at 6-5 and 8-7, but Halep squandered all three chances.
It was a good match for both players, and it must have been particularly heartbreaking for the American especially after owning three match points and her broken toenail hindered her.
Halep and Davis served up the best match of the Aussie Open so far. She had carried in a left ankle injury sustained in her opening round against wildcard Destanee Aiava, and dosed up on anti-inflammatories and pain-killers before she was even able to start.
She continued: "That third set was nothing really like I had ever played before, such an awesome atmosphere". And then she took the medical. I did that, and I think she was a little bit exhausted at that moment. Left all that I had out there on the court.

"But she was also getting to a lot of balls and definitely made me play my best tennis".
