"I'm nearly dead", the tenacious Romanian said after the incredible battle, in which Davis lost a toenail and Halep served for the match four times.
American battler Lauren Davis has never played a third set like the 15-13 epic against Simona Halep Saturday, and despite losing said she'll take away "a ton of positives". "It was not easy, but I just kept playing and I just kept believing that it's not over, even if she is leading". "My ankle is, I don't know how it is because I don't feel it anymore, but it was nice to be on court".
"Definitely it was a very tough match, so long, and I never played the third set so long".
"I have always looked up to her and I think we have shown the world that we can be the best".
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. The match took 48 games, tying an Australian Open women's singles record.
Fans cheered for the gutsy Davis as she left the court after the marathon encounter in which she nearly landed a first career journey to a Grand Slam fourth round.
Halep, suffering from ankle problems, came under constant pressure as the world number 75 hit 52 winners to all parts of the court.
How the ankle might pull up Sunday, or Monday when she plays the victor of Ashleigh Barty and Naomi Osaka in the fourth round, she couldn't predict. "She's super agile and dynamic around the court", she said.
"I obviously have to be more humble this time with my expectations because I haven't played for six months", the 14th-seeded Djokovic said.
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. But still she fought on, breaking the Halep serve THREE times as the Romanian served for the match at 5-4, 6-5 and 8-7.
The 4-6, 6-4, 15-13 win, during which she saved three match points when down love-40, at 10-11 in the third, was a monumental step forward in the shoring up of perhaps her weakest asset - her competitive confidence.
Men's second seed Roger Federer had no such trouble, as he booked his spot in the fourth round with a 6-2, 7-5, 6-4 defeat of Richard Gasquet, while Novak Djokovic downed Albert Ramos Vinolas 6-2, 6-3, 6-3. "She's always unsafe, especially at the Grand Slams", Kerber said.
She took a medical timeout to stall Halep's momentum and the Romanian fumed on the baseline as a trainer worked on Davis's toe.
The former No. 1-ranked Wozniacki will next play No. 30 Kiki Bertens, who beat Nicole Gibbs 7-6 (3), 6-0. Pliskova beat No. 29 Lucie Safarova in straight sets, 7-6 (6), 7-5 while Garcia bested Aliaksandra Sasnovich, 6-3, 5-7, 6-2.
