    More from Kyrgios

    Nick Kyrgios praised opponent Stefanos Tsitsipas after their Wimbledon thriller.

    Kyrgios added: "Honestly, it was a hell of an atmosphere, an amazing match. I felt like the favourite coming in, I beat him a couple of weeks ago.

    "He's a hell of a player, he knows how to beat me, he's beaten me once. I'm so happy to be through. He [Tsitsipas] was getting frustrated at times and it is a frustrating sport.

    "I have ultimate respect for him, whatever happens on the court I love him and I'm close with his brother.

    "It's amazing, everywhere I go I seem to have full stadiums. The media loves to say I'm bad for the sport but clearly I'm not"

    Nick Kyrgios reacts

    Nick Kyrgios defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas in an absolute thriller at Wimbledon.

    During his post-match interview, Kyrgios said he always considered himself the favourite.

    He said: "I felt like I was the favourite. I beat him a few weeks ago and he's only beaten me once.

    "He got frustrated, it's a frustrating sport. Whatever happens, I love him"

    Kyrgios win latest

    Kyrgios was livid at the end of the second set when Tsitsipas fired a ball into the spectators, narrowly missing one, and called for the Greek to be kicked out of the tournament.

    The request fell on deaf ears but Tsitsipas later received a point penalty when he walloped a shot into the crowd in frustration to an underarm serve from his Aussie opponent.

    In all the mayhem, it was easy to lose sight of the fact one of the hot favourites was sent packing, as Kyrgios came through 6-7 6-4 6-3 7-6.

    Kyrgios X-RATED rant in win

    Foul-mouth Nick Kyrgios demanded opponent Stefanos Tsitsipas be disqualified for hitting a ball into the crowd – then dumped the No4 seed out anyway.

    In one of the feistiest clashes at SW19 this year – or any year – unseeded Kyrgios dropped several F-bombs and called for the umpire to be replaced.

    Both players were warned for their behaviour and each ranted at man-in-the-chair Damien Dumusois on a number of occasions.

    Rafa Nadal wins

    Rafa Nadal beat Lorenzo Sonego in the third round at Wimbledon.

    Nadal and Sonego exchanged words in the final game and then at the net when the match was over.

    It is believed the Spaniard took exception to noises made by the Italian during points.

    Nadal said post-match: “Not spicy at all. From the bottom of my heart, I didn’t make it in a negative way.

    “I am sorry if I bothered him, I wanted to tell him something. I did it in a nice way.

    "Now I feel bad if I am bothered him. I was talking to him, and I will talk to him later. This is not a problem at all”

    More from Watson

    Heather Watson continued praising her Wimbledon surrogate family.

    Watson added: “The most important thing is that I feel at home there and it’s just so convenient. It’s right next to Aorangi and I can just walk to the club every day.

    “They have seen me grow up and they were in the box supporting me in the last match. They’re like family, they have been with me through it all.

    “Even the 2012 London Olympics, I stayed there. I’ve always had the faith about the fourth round, I knew my time would come and it’s here. And it is here.

    “I play because I love it, I want to do well. Tennis means everything to me, it’s what I have been doing pretty much my whole life, so I don’t think about that”

    Watson's special thanks

    Heather Watson has thanked her 12-year Wimbledon surrogate family for the home comforts during the fortnight ahead of her fourth-round clash with German Jule Niemeier.

    Watson said: “I’ve stayed with the same family for the last 12 years. The Skinners, Jane and her two sons, George and James. It’s great when it rains, I can always pop back.

    “Secondly, they are like family, I see them throughout the year now and we’re really close.

    “Thirdly, Jane, the mum, she’s a chef. Fourthly, they have a dog and I love animals"

    More from Southgate

    England manager Gareth Southgate was able to watch Rafa Nadal in the flesh this year.

    Southgate was too busy with Euro 2020 this time last year to pay much attention to Wimbledon.

    He said: “In the middle of last year’s excitement, we didn’t get to see much at all.

    “It’s always great to see top-level players, and it’s an English institution, coming to Wimbledon”

  • Kostas Lianos

    Southgate's Nadal example

    England manager Gareth Southgate has told his players to match tennis legend Rafa Nadal’s consistency and professionalism.

    Southgate said: “His consistency over a long period of time and the way he’s looked after himself – the benchmark now for professional athletes is to be as he is.

    “All those fine margins that make the difference. For me, the way that the tennis players recover between matches – they play for four or five hours , then they’ve maybe got to go out there and play another big game the next day.

    “There are so many elements that you can learn from”

    'True honour' to win at Wimbledon, says De Minaur

    Sydney star Alex de Minaur will now play Chilean Cristian Garín in the Last 16 – neither have been beyond this stage – as the pair benefit from the withdrawal of 2021 runner-up Matteo Berrettini pre-tournament with Covid.

    De Minaur said: “It’s relief. It was harder than I wanted it to be. You get nerves playing in front of an amazing crowd against a Brit.

    “There is relief to be in the second week of Wimbledon.

    “Wimbledon is such a special tournament, to come here and play here is a true honour.

    "I am enjoying every second and trying to ride this wave.”

    De Minaur in straight sets

    De Minaur, 23, increased the pressure early in the second set and despite missing out on three break-point opportunities in game three, he gained the advantage in game five instead.

    There were occasions when loudmouth Broady would scream ‘Come On’ when his opponent smashed a ball against the net.

    But despite his admirable fighting qualities – he twice forced De Minaur to serve for the match in an hour-long set and came four times within earning a third-set tie-break – Broady eventually followed Boulter through the Wimbledon exit door on a rather flat Sporting Saturday.

    Brit Broady out

    Had Broady made it to the next stage, it would have been Britain's most number of individuals at that juncture since 1979.

    For Broady, who cannot earn any ranking points for this run, the £120,000 prize money will afford him a decent night out and go some way towards the reinvestment of his tennis.

    Unfortunately there were swathes of empty seats in the 12,345-capacity arena by the time Broady began the match of his life.

    Throughout the opening week, it has been noticeable that so many Pimm’s-guzzling punters have not been in place by the time action has started on the two big courts.

    That said, those who were enjoying a long lunch would have missed the first set given it was all over in 28 minutes.

    It was not pretty at times and De Minaur turned the screw with exemplary serving after a key break of serve in game six.

    Broady falls to De Minaur

    Liam Broady failed to make it a hat-trick of Brits in the fourth round of Wimbledon after being eliminated by Katie Boulter’s boyfriend.

    The Stockport southpaw, 28, could not find a way past No.19 seed Alex de Minaur on No.1 Court on day six of the Championships.

    The Australian – who is dating Leicestershire’s Boulter – ruined the dreams of Surrey youngster Jack Draper in the second round.

    And now he has done the same to British No.5 Broady with some excellent serving and 13 aces in a 6-3 6-4 7-5 win.
