MARTON FUCSOVICS was the talk of the Australian Open after shocking everyone with his insane muscles.
The Hungarian, 30, has rarely earned headlines throughout his 14-year professional tennis career.
And the world No78’s first-round clash with 76th-ranked Federico Coria was hardly box office viewing.
However, that all changed after the final point of their four-hour five-set battle on Court 17.
Burberry model Fucsovics 4-6 7-5 2-6 7-6 6-2 and knew exactly how we wanted to celebrate the intense victory in the sweltering Melbourne heat.
The duo shook hands at the net and with the umpire then the bodybuilding Hungarian ace immediately ripped off his fluorescent yellow t-shirt.
That revealed his utterly outrageous rack of abs, bulging biceps and simply staggering muscular physique – made even more impressive as he dripped in sweat and tensed then let out a roar of delight.
Fucsovics, who peaked at 31 in the rankings, joined in with the fans’ clapping and chanting as he sat topless in his chair before eventually putting his jersey back on to exit the court.
And unsurprisingly he had suddenly earned a legion of new fans who quickly discovered his Instagram page as the waves of appreciation came flooding in.
One Twitter user said: “When is the swimsuit round… did you see Fucsovics celebration? I would…”

Another wrote: “Fucsovics has no right being this ripped.”
A third added: “Bro this is a tennis tournament not a Mr Olympia.”
And a final fan commented: “He should send this to Calvin Klein.”
Even former world No1 and two-time Australian Open finalist Daniil Medvedev referenced Fucsovics’ body, by tensing his thigh in celebration after beating John Millman.
The Russian said: “This match I felt amazing physically.
“A lot of people saw on social media Marton after his match… I think I have just a little bit less muscles, so it was also to laugh at myself.”
Fucsovics backed up the first-round win by beating Lloyd Harris but joked it was “too cold for a shirtless celebration”.
Now he will need all his power and might in round three if he is to shock Jannik Sinner.
The No15 seed goes into the clash in blistering form, dropping just 13 games across two matches.
However, Fucsovics’ best Grand Slam result was reaching the Wimbledon quarter-finals in 2021, where he beat Sinner, Diego Schwartzman and Andrey Rublev before losing to Novak Djokovic.
