Nick Kyrgios beats Brandon Nakashima to reach quarter-finals

by Kolkata Today

Australian Nick Kyrgios has reached the quarter-finals at wimbledon for the first time in eight years after winning a five-set match against American Brandon Nakashima.

The unseeded Australian, who needed medical attention on Centre Court for his shoulder, and who dropped the opening set, won 4-6, 6-4, 7-6(2), 3-6, 6-2 to advance to a match against Chile’s Cristian Garin.

The last time Kyrgios made the last eight on the Wimbledon grass was in 2014, the year he defeated Rafael Nadal.

Nick Kyrgios’ entertaining Wimbledon run continued as he shrugged off a shoulder injury to beat American Brandon Nakashima and reach his first major quarter-final in seven years.

“It wasn’t anywhere near my best performance level-wise but I’m super happy to get through and I fought really hard,” said Kyrgios, who is ranked 40th in the world.
“I’ve played a lot of tennis in the past month and a half and I’m proud of the way I steadied the ship.”

After securing a hard-fought win with his first match point, he said: “I need a large glass of wine tonight for sure.”
