Nick Kyrgios’ historic fourth round win over Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon has led to a re-writing of the record books:

  • Kyrgios is the first player born in the 1990s to beat Nadal; the Spaniard had won all 22 matches against 90s-born players prior to the match
  • he is the lowest-ranked player Nadal has ever lost to at a Grand Slam tournament
  • the wildcard is the first man to reach the quarterfinals on his¬†Wimbledon debut since Florian Mayer in 2004
  • at 19 years, 70 days, Kyrgios is the youngest player to reach the quarterfinals at a Grand Slam since compatriot Bernard Tomic (18 years 255 days) at 2011 Wimbledon
  • Kyrgios is the lowest-ranked player to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals since No.158 Tomic in 2011
  • he is the first teenager to defeat a world No.1 at a Grand Slam since Nadal achieved the feat when he defeated Roger Federer at 2005 Roland Garros aged 19 years, two days
  • he is the first player ranked outside the Top 100 to defeat a world No.1 at a major since No.193 Andrei Olhovskiy defeated Jim Courier in the third round at 1992 Wimbledon
  • Kyrgios is the lowest-ranked player to defeat Nadal since No.690 Joachim Johansson at 2006 Stockholm
  • he is only the third Australian player to defeat Nadal after Chris Guccione (by retirement) and Lleyton Hewitt
