Kyrgios braves cut and cramps to down Wawrinka

Kyrgios shocks Nadal to set up Wawrinka clash Zverev progresses

Kyrgios shocks Nadal to set up Wawrinka clash Zverev progresses

He can focus on what he needs to do.

Speaking to the press after his straight-sets quarter-final victory against Marton Fucsovics at the Dubai Championship on Thursday, Federer said players shouldn't be ashamed of using the underarm serve. "He doesn't know anything about me so I'm not going to listen at all", the world No 72 told a news conference.

"It's the way I play, it's the way he plays". He is a very unsafe player but lacks consistency. "I've got my game, he's got his own game". "People are different - I'm not going to take that into consideration at all", he went on to add.

Kyrgios, 23, saved nine break points in the match and came from 6-3 down in the third-set tie-break to win in three hours and three minutes, before falling to the floor in celebration.

He hasn't dropped a set in three matches this week and has been especially impressive on serve.

Nick Kyrgios celebrates winning a point in a hard-fought clash against Stanislas Wawrinka in Acapulco.

NY time, while the Nasdaq Composite Index gained 0.8 percent and the Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed 0.4 percent. Sydney rose 0.4 percent, Singapore and Wellington each edged up 0.3 percent and Jakarta put on 0.9 percent.

Kyrgios steeled himself to continue, and distractions seemed forgotten as he became absorbed in the battle.

A tense second set saw Wawrinka break Kyrgios at love for a 5-4 lead.

Later in the match, a spectator apparently hurled an expletive at Kyrgios, who shot back saying: "F*** you, man".

Meanwhile, Kyrgios reached his first semi-final since June a year ago after outlasting Stan Wawrinka 7-5 6-7 (3-7) 6-4 in another thrilling match.

The 33-year-old Wawrinka, from Switzerland, is a three-time Grand Slam victor. Wang beat Brazilian qualifier Beatriz Haddad Maia 6-3, 6-4, a day after Haddad Maia upset top-seeded Sloane Stephens. 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. The drama started in the very first game, when Kyrgios took an awkward fall and badly scraped the knuckles of his racquet hand.
