In the first quarter final of the inaugural ATP Cup in Sydney it was team Australia who took a big lead and it came from who else but Nick Kyrgios!
After a close couple of games and a problematic service game for the Australian who found himself down 15-40 he reeled off four points in a row and then ran away with the set in 29 minutes.
The tennis from Nick got better and better as the set went on. The double break which pretty much sealed the fate of Cam Norrie in set one was sealed by this moment of wizardry from the 24 year old:
The set was quickly over for Cam who after 29 minutes went off for a toilet break and as he would in the first set he served first in the second.
Cam Norrie found himself in a good position at 1-1 40-15 but continued to push and panic and a double fault on break point gifted the break to Kyrgios.
Big serving was required and who best to come up with it than Nick Kyrgios? A couple of break points were on offer but some big serves and net play from Nick extended the lead to 3-1.
Ho do you follow that?
Easy… the point of the tournament from Nick Kyrgios!
At 4-1 we did just see a slight dip from Kyrgios on serve with Cam being given some opportunities to get a look in. One break point was saved but a wild couple of points from Kyrgios gave Norrie a small hope.
Another break was exchanged, Cam Norrie threw his racket for the second time and Nick would then go and serve for the match.
3 aces and a forehand long from Norrie sealed a comfortable 6-2 6-2 win for Kyrgios.
