Kyrgios in the Wimbledon semi-final
Australia’s Nick Kyrgios reached the semi-finals of the Wimbledon Open by beating Chile’s Christian Garin in three clean sets on Wednesday.
Kyrgios, who entered the meeting under considerable pressure following an Australian court request to appear in an assault case, succeeded in overcoming these circumstances and excelled in the first and second sets with six runs for four and six for three consecutive, before the world number 40 needed a tiebreaker to settle the third set with seven runs for six, in a match that spanned two hours and 13 minutes.
Kyrgios said after the match: “I never thought I would be in the semi-final of a major tournament. I thought the ship had sailed off without me and I might have wasted that little window in my career “.
“I’m glad I was able to come here with my team and perform well. I felt like I was adopting the defensive technique a lot. Garren is a scary player. I was lucky at my breakpoint, so I will take that and I will prepare for my next match. “
