US Open champion Naomi Osaka came back from within two games of an Australian Open third-round exit to beat Taiwanese Hsieh Su-wei 5-7 6-4 6-1.

The Japanese fourth seed lost the first set and was a break down in the second.

But she broke back twice at the end of the second and won seven games in a row to take the advantage in the deciding set.

The 21-year-old will face China’s 21st seed Wang Qiang or Latvian 13th seed Anastasija Sevastova in the next round.
