Rafael Nadal and Nick Kyrgios advance at the All England Club

Nick Kyrgios says “a lot of people will be upset” when he reaches the Wimbledon quarter-finals, but it’s “nice” to silence his critics.

His exciting run continued at SW19, coming from a shoulder injury to defeat American Brandon Nakashima 4-6 6-4 7-6 (7-2) 3-6 6-2 to reach his first major quarterfinal at the Reach in seven. years. He will be joined on the 16th by Rafael Nadal, who has continued his quest for a calendar Grand Slam with a 6-4 6-2 7-6 (8-6) victory over Butik van de Sandsalp.

Kyrgios was more relaxed than his fiery game against Stefanos Tsitsipas, and that was mostly the case when he faced Chilean Christian Karin. The 27-year-old Australian has focused on the regular season and his success at the All England club has improved his off-field habits.

“He had to leave the bar at 4 o’clock to play [Rafael] Nadal,” said Kyrgios, who is the 40th in the world. “My agent has to take me out [to the central court] before the match at Wimbledon. I’ve come a long way, that’s for sure.”

Garin, 26, came back from two sets down to defeat 19th seed Alex de Minaur – saving two match points in the fifth to avoid an all-Australian encounter. The world number 43 specialist on clay court reached his first major quarterfinal with a 2-6 5-7 7-6 (7-3) 6-4 7-6 (10-6) victory.

Kyrgios looks into his glass after announcing victory

All eyes were on Kyrgios after his third-round match against Greek fourth seed Tsitsipas became one of the biggest championship debates of the year after a series of dramas. While there were no fireworks from Center Court in his match against Nakashima on Court One on Saturday night, they were slow.

Break chances were rare as the pair dominated their service games and Kyrgios ’injury-prone swing made the match difficult. “I need great glass wine today,” he said, after he had a difficult success in his first race.

“This is the best level of my speech, but I’m very happy and very heavy,” he said.

“I played a lot of tennis in the last one and a half months. I’m proud of how I put a ship.”

Kerchka has reached his first Wimbledon playoff since 2014, and as a 19 -year -old wild card, he was surprised by Raphael’s world number. Another run to the 16th round at the Australian Open followed in 2015, but so far he has not reached the same level again.

“I sit here in the quarterfinals at Wimbledon, I feel good, I feel relaxed, I feel mature, I’m very happy to have good people around me,” Kyrgios said. “I’m comfortable in my own skin.”

Tsitsipas said he did not mind the criticism he received after the game – a meeting in which both players were fined for their behavior – and laughed.

I have a big chip on my shoulder. I know that many people are very upset because I sit in Wimbledon in the fourth stage. What

Cerconius can now be with nickel to “handle”

While people are still talking about his mood, when the player did not gain too much skills, the injury was another reason for Kigius’ progress in recent years. The Australian, who retired from the Majorca Open last month with an abdominal injury, suffered another physical challenge late in the first set against Nakashima.

“I woke up playing Chitsibas and my shoulder hurt,” he said. “I know it’s time for my body to start feeling wrinkles. I think that’s normal. At this point, I think no one feels 100 percent.

“Mentally, I feel like I’m handling these things a lot better now.”

In a tie game, neither player had an impact on the other’s serve until Kyrgios found himself in a terrible situation and suddenly broke back to give the American the lead. At the start of the second set, he grimaced and continued to try to relax his injured shoulder between points.

However, he lost the third match with a double fault from Nakashima and a leg before a physicist was called up in transition. After taking painkillers and undergoing routine treatment, he was able to take two sets to one lead as the match moved quickly.

He said another turn came when Kyrgios lost his way in the fourth series – a “complete drug trick”. Kyrgios broke in the final game – and held Nakashima’s first fixture on a service he scored – but forced himself to escape with the decisive point.

“I discarded that game on service. I knew he was in rhythm. “He started me,” Kyrgios said. I just wanted to push him away a bit and it worked.

Nadal continues to offer calendar shots
Nadal is playing his first Wimbledon since 2019, playing for the first time after treating a chronic leg injury with radiofrequency ablation to alleviate ongoing nerve pain. The Spaniard, aiming for a third Wimbledon title, controlled the first two sets and saved the only breaking point he faced en route to the lead.

However, he did not serve for the match and lost 5-3 after a bad game that eventually forced the Dutchman into a devotion break.

Nadal lost three match points 6-3. Nadal said: “I think I stayed positive until the end of my bad game.

“Personally, I’m surprised to be in the quarterfinals after three years, so I’m very happy.”

He will face Taylor Fritz after the American reached his first major quarterfinal with a 6-3 6-1 6-4 victory over Australian Jason Kuebler.
