Nick Kyrgios knocked out the US Open’s defending champion and top seed Daniil Medvedev in a gripping fourth round clash which saw the Wimbledon finalist win 7-6 (13-11), 3-6 6-3 6-2.
He will now prepare for his quarter-final fixture which takes place tomorrow, Tuesday 5 September.
The 27-year-old has dropped just two sets on his way to reaching the US Open quarter-final but despite the excellence he has shown with the racket, Kyrgios has continued to recieve attention for his antics - he threw his racket twice during the first-set tie-break and picked up a code violation for audible obscenity.
Later on in the game, the chair umpire, Eva Asderaki, correctly called a ‘foul shot’ from Kyrgios, but this was soon followed by a further spectacle involving the player questioning the decision at length.
However, Kyrgios still managed to prevail and he now prepares for his quarter-final fixture against Karen Khachanov.
