Kyrgios fells Nadal at Cincinnati

21 August 2017

1 seed Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals of the Western & Southern Open.

Australian Kyrgios hit 10 aces against the 15-time grand-slam victor to set up a semi-final against David Ferrer, who produced another shocking result in dominating third-seed Dominic Thiem 6-3 6-3.

The crowd briefly turned on Kyrgios when he played a nonchalant shot between his legs, allowing Nadal to finish off an easy victor, prompting boos from spectators who thought it disrespectful. But Halep has lost two prior matches this year with a chance to ascend to number one, falling to Jelena Ostapenko in the French Open final and to Konta in a Wimbledon quarter-final after having won the first set in both matches.

Dimitrov broke serve in the next game by crashing a superb forehand down the line and he served out the set comfortably.

"Right now is just all about just going step by step and just building up not only my confidence, my game, to be able to do that pretty much every time I'm entering a tournament".

Dimitrov later shared in his press conference a bit of locker room talk he enjoyed with Isner regarding a particularly wild point from the second set. I'm missing all the match. "If I deserve the place, for sure I will win it".

Showcasing everything brilliant and exciting about his mercurial style, Kyrgios battered Nadal 6-2, 7-5 in a dazzling display of serving and sizzling groundstrokes.

Will it be Dimitrov or Kyrgios who takes home the Rookwood Cup?

"I could have done a few things better".

Kyrgios, who ousted Monday's new world number one Rafael Nadal in the quarter-finals, has not won an ATP title since taking his third previous year in Tokyo.

"No excuses. Nothing at all", Nadal said.

The women's semifinals saw 4-seed Garbine Muguruza defeat top-ranked Karolina Pliskova 6-3, 6-2 and 2-seed Simona Halep defeat American Sloane Stephens 6-2, 6-1.

"I'm going to enjoy it for a day or two but then it's back to the routine and prepare for the US Open".

Kyrgios, the first Aussie to reach the Cincinnati men's final since Lleyton Hewitt in 2004, is also the first unseeded finalist since John Isner in 2013. I think in the end of the match, it was just a few points that made the biggest difference for me.
