'Stupidest question ever': Nick Kyrgios fuels feud with Rafael Nadal

'Stupidest question ever': Nick Kyrgios fuels feud with Rafael Nadal

The win sees Australia into the final four, to meet the victor of Spain and Belgium later this week.

Kyrgios gave Australia the lead with a 6-2, 6-2 win over Cameron Norrie in the opening singles, before Evans beat de Minaur 7-6 (7-4), 4-6, 7-6 (7-2), meaning the result would hinge on the doubles.

Their next match-up could be against Spain - meaning a match-up against one of the most frequent targets of Kyrgios' derision, Rafael Nadal, could be on the cards.

But no stranger to on-court controversy himself, Kyrgios said it would be harsh to be overly critical of Tsitsipas.

"I think any time in a match where the opponent stops thinking about what he needs to do and starts focusing on external things like that, I think I've got an edge straightaway", Kyrgios explained. "It was honestly, today was one of the best moments in my career, definitely".

"He hits the ball great, moves really well - I'm not anxious about him", he said.

Australia had to wait to celebrate, with Britain questioning whether Kyrgios' service landed on the service line after Salisbury lost a setback in Australia's fifth game point, but once it was confirmed that De Minaur and Kyrgios collapsed in a hug on the court.

"I can't believe he missed that, I'm sorry but that was tough". We just couldn't get to the last point.

Apparently, while in attendance at the Golden Globes, she was seated beside Big Little Lies writer David E. In Matt Reeves' anxiously foreseen film The Batman , the Dark Knight will go head to head with not one.


Even though he's not on Nadal's side in a win against Belgium, it should be interesting to watch Kyrgios cheer on de Minaur from the special viewpoints the teams have in the corner of the ATP Cup.

His first serve hit the net, but Salisbury's return on second serve sailed long and Australia advanced to the ATP Cup semi-finals after one of the most electrifying days of tennis you'll ever see.

"That's why I play sport is for occasions like that". "That will hurt. I'll probably never miss it again in my career".

Karen Khachanov defeated Guido Pella 6-2, 7-6 and Daniil Medvedev made the match safe by dispatching Diego Schwartzman 6-4, 4-6, 6-3.

Serbia or Canada stand in the way of Russian Federation and a place in the final.

Medvedev was given a point penalty for clattering the chair umpire's chair with his racket but regained his composure following a chat with captain Marat Safin.

But Medvedev regained his composure in the decider to win 6-4 4-6 6-3, with the victory ensuring he will be among the top four seeds at the Australian Open.
