Stuttgart, Germany

Nick Kyrgios has set a semifinal showdown with former world No.1 Andy Murray at an ATP 250 tournament in Stuttgart.

The 27-year-old Australian moved into the final four after Hungarian Marton Fucsovics retired during the second set of their quarterfinal clash.

Kyrgios was leading 7-6(3) 3-0 when world No.55 Fucsovics conceded the match due to a lower back injury.

This propels Kyrgios into his second ATP semifinal of the season – and first on grass in almost four years.

Murray awaits after eliminating top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarterfinals. It was 35-year-old Murray’s first top-five win on grass since beating world No.1 Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon 2013 final.

Murray owns a 5-1 win-loss record against world No.78 Kyrgios, however the Australian did win their most recent meeting on grass in 2018.

Kyrgios is looking to advance to his first ATP singles final since his title-winning run at Washington in August 2019.
