Kyrgios is ‘dangerous’ says Nadal as Spaniard prevails in bad-tempered thriller

Roger Federer opens up on his worst Wimbledon losses

Kyrgios spent much of the match, which was contested on Centre Court, complaining about Nadal's speed of play. He is nothing if not fascinating.

"I support to have more players coming out and supported, but I can not do it alone", the Belgian world number 58 said. "I got thousands of messages from people I know and from people I don't know". "There were some moments in the match where maybe I could have done better", the defending champion said. "But I'll probably wake up tomorrow (and) there will be something negative about it, for sure".

Reigning Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber was eliminated Thursday when unseeded American Lauren Davis beat her 2-6, 6-2, 6-1.

Ashleigh Barty's bid to become the first woman since Serena Williams in 2015 to win the French Open and Wimbledon in the same year stayed on track with a 6-1, 6-3 second round victory over Belgium's Alison van Uytvanck on Thursday.

Isner has not played any matches on grass prior to this tournament due to a foot injury and it came back to hurt him.

None of that really mattered, in the end.

Rafael Nadal seemed to be as amused as the crowd at Kyrgios's underarm serve, picking up the ball with a smile after it.

The Croatian, who has only made one quarter-final appearance this year, didn't show the sort of form that we have come to expect from the former US Open champion.

Missing Aussie Student Alek Sigley Has Been Released From North Korea
His blog posts focused on Pyongyang culture and included everything from the city's dining scene to North Korean app reviews. Alek Sigley was spotted arriving in Beijing on Thursday, . where he told reporters that he's doing very well.

Johnson's best Grand Slam showing was a fourth-round run at the All England Club in 2016, which ended with a loss to Federer.

Nadal's uncle Toni then heavily criticised Kyrgios after he threw a chair on to the court and then defaulted, suggesting he "lacked education". "I don't know what you want from me".

Kyrgios was asked about the current state of his relationship with the 33-year-old and he responded by saying that they were unlikely to go for a drink together, but that he was relishing meeting Nadal on court.

In the wake of that win, the Australian had described Nadal as "super salty" in defeat and admitted earlier in the Championships that the pair would not be sharing a drink any time soon.

And Kyrgios' self-assessment? "I know what I'm capable of".

World number one Barty has even closer ties with the Australian women's cricket team as she played alongside some of them during her 17-month hiatus from tennis when she played professional Big Bash Cricket in her home country.

It was an assessment Kyrgios accepted was fair, admitting he is not always the "most professional guy". Why do I have to wait for Rafa to get into his rhythm every time?

"So there's a lot of things I need to improve on to get to that level that Rafa brings, Novak, Roger have been doing for so long". She is 23-0 against qualifiers at Grand Slam tournaments. But against Nadal, he displayed boundless power, guile, touch and athleticism.
