Nick Kyrgios has continued his hot run with a straight-sets fourth-round defeat of eighth seed David Goffin at the Miami Open.

Kyrgios’s 7-6(5) 6-3 victory propelled the in-form Australian into his fourth quarter-final in as many events.

The 21-year-old will face fellow young gun Alexander Zverev, who earlier upset top-seeded birthday boy Stan Wawrinka 4-6 6-2 6-1 to blow open the top half of the draw.

Kyrgios is aiming to reach the Miami Open semifinals for a second consecutive year.
