In His Fourth-Round Victory At Wimbledon, Nick Kyrgios Admits Tanking But Claims It “Worked” Against Brandon Nakashima.

Nick Kyrgios has revealed that he lost focus during his triumph over the American prodigy Brandon Nakashima in the fourth round of Wimbledon, but he claims that the strategy was successful in unsettling his opponent.

The 56th-ranked American was defeated by the Australian in three hours and 11 minutes via a score of 4-6 6-4 7-6(2) 3-6 6-2. This victory allowed the Australian to advance to the quarterfinals at the All England club for the first time since his debut run in 2014. He will next face Chile’s Cristian Garin in the last eight.

Kyrgios’ performance was mainly free of controversy, with the exception of his service game in the final game of the fourth set. The world no. 40 appeared to not try as he handed the set back to Nakashima, thus gift-wrapping the victory for the Japanese player.

Kyrgios’ serve slowed to approximately half of its typical speed of 200 kilometers per hour (km/h), and he slapped numerous shots out of play and even threw in an underarm serve as Nakashima went up 0-40 before converting on his third set point to win the first set.

As a result of Kyrgios’ choice to throw the game, Nakashima was given the opportunity to serve first in the fifth and deciding set, which caused the legendary Australian tennis player Todd Woodbridge to express his dismay at the situation on Stan Sport.

After the match, Kyrgios conceded that he did not try during that particular game, but he stated that the strategy was designed to throw Nakashima off, which was a theory that couldn’t be argued with as the American struggled through the fifth set.

At the conclusion of the fourth round, finish off with a rope-a-dope strategy. Kyrgios admitted that he had just “thrown away” that service game.

“I was aware that he was maintaining a beat. He was moving closer and closer till he was on top of me. To be honest, all I really wanted to do was throw him off a little bit. It was successful.

The Australian player voiced his displeasure at not being able to play Alex de Minaur, who was eliminated by Garin in five sets, in an all-Australian quarterfinal match, but he disclosed that he would be celebrating his victory over Nakashima by having a drink to himself.

“I was really thrilled to play Demon, he’s been flying the Aussie flag for such a long time, and I came on court when he was two sets to one up, so I was expecting to play him, because I came on when he was leading, “I was really excited to play Demon, he’s been flying the Aussie flag for “he added.

“But I’m not even going to consider it, since I really require a glass of wine right now.”
