Halle, Germany

Nick Kyrgios has proved he can match it with the world’s best players on grass, knocking out world No.6 Stefanos Tsitsipas in a second-round battle at Halle.

Kyrgios posted a hard-fought 5-7 6-2 6-4 victory, overcoming the second-seeded Greek in two hours and five minutes.


It is world No.65 Kyrgios’ third top-10 win of the season – and his first on grass since beating then world No.8 Milos Raonic at Wimbledon in 2015.

This moves Kyrgios, a wildcard entry this week, into a quarterfinal showdown with world No.19 Pablo Carreno Busta of Spain.

“I want to keep having these big wins on the best courts in the world,” Kyrgios said.

In doubles action, Roland Garros finalists Ivan Dodig and Austin Krajicek eliminated Aussie duo Matt Ebden and Max Purcell in a three-set first-round battle.
