Zverev Defeats De Minaur In Acapulco 2019 Quarter-finals

Zverev Defeats De Minaur In Acapulco 2019 Quarter-finals

In a marathon encounter lasting more than two-and-a-half hours, Kyrgios won 7-5, 6-7 (3/7), 6-4, setting up a semi-final showdown against either fellow Australian John Millman or towering American John Isner. "He has got his game and I have got mine".

Kyrgios pulled the move about halfway through the match on Tuesday night, as Nadal characteristically hugged the back of the court.

Kyrgios, who has already drawn the ire of Roger Federer in this year's tournament, wasn't prepared to take the abuse lying down and volleyed an arsenal of insults at the capacity crowd.

"They're Rafa fans, they're Stan fans; they can probably go fly to Indian Wells if they wanna go catch them play", said a defiant Kyrgios after the match.

Australian Nick Kyrgios, unfazed by stern words from vanquished Rafael Nadal, produced another gritty win over Switzerland's Stan Wawrinka Thursday to reach the semifinals of the Mexico Open. I've got my game, he's got his game. Kyrgios is into his first semifinal since London last summer. "I love it", he said. It's the way he plays - he's very slow between points and I think that the rule in the book is that you have to play to the speed of the server but Rafa has the speed every time.

"I was cramping like insane toward the end of the third set", he added.

'It was just a tough match, obviously she played well, said Stephens, who is playing in Acapulco for the first time since winning the 2016 title.

Norrie will face second-seeded German Alexander Zverev, who did not face a break point en route to a 6-4 6-4 win over Australian Alex de Minaur.

Sascha completed the set with three winners at 5-4 and a 24-shot rally that ended with a forehand error from the Aussie.

Zverev's semi-final opponent will be Britain's Cameron Norrie, who beat American Mackenzie McDonald in the quarters. Wang will face fifth-seeded Sofia Kenin of the United States, a 6-4, 3-6, 7-5 victor over 18-year-old Canadian Bianca Andreescu.

The Belarusian, now ranked 50th in the world, served for the match at 5-4 in the third before succumbing after two and a half hours.
