Dasha Gavrilova loved her victory as much we we love her.

Australian star Daria Gavrilova sealed her third round victory in the Australian Open at Melbourne Park on Saturday night with an almighty scream that got us all jumping for joy.

Better known as Dasha, the 22-year-old has been the Aussie to watch in this year's Open and if that doesn't convince you, her reaction to the win that will see her advance into the fourth round of the tournament overnight definitely will.

Check it out below.

Gavrilova is the last standing Australian in the tournament and managed to overcome Swiss 12th seed Timea Bacsinszky in a marathon 3-set match over two-and-a-half hours, securing the victory 6-3, 5-7, 6-4.

Dasha continued her strong campaign so far this tournament, starting confident in the first set and breaking Bacsinszky's serve three times before a second set struggle set up the final set clash we all came to see.

In the end, it was the Aussie who stood as the winner despite failing to convert two match points at 5-2 in that final set and it was her absolute glee in the aftermath that should get you loving her if you don't already do.

She even found time to squeeze in a little dance to celebrate her victory.

Dasha faces a tough fourth round opponent in Czech fifth seed star Karolina Pliskova after she managed to down Latvian teenager Jelena Ostapenko 4-6, 6-4, 10-8.

If you're not sure who that is, Pliskova was the US Open finalist last year who lost to World number one Angelique Kerber.

In other words, it'll be a match you won't want to miss.
