Britain's Jack Draper vomits courtside after tough five-set match win at Australian Open

Britain's Jack Draper vomited into a courtside bin after overcoming the Melbourne heat to defeat Marcos Giron at the Australian Open.

It was the 22-year-old's first ever five-set match - and he looked in serious trouble at two sets to one down against his American opponent.

But he has been working hard on his fitness and he fought back to win 6-4 3-6 4-6 6-0 6-2 after three hours and 20 minutes.

As soon as he had shaken hands with Giron after one final gruelling rally - he ran to the bin to be sick.

It was several minutes before he was able to walk off the court.

The match was dominated by punishing rallies from the start, with Draper getting the better of five straight breaks of serve and narrowly hanging on to his advantage.

He will now have to try to recover for a second-round match against 14th seed Tommy Paul on Thursday - when temperatures are forecast to be much lower.
