Borna Coric 4-6 6-3 6-2 Nick Kyrgios; Code violations, smashed rackets, point penalties, swearing and some Tennis!

I don’t really know where to begin…

Firstly congratulations to Borna Coric for the win in an action packed match.

We had it all;

Both Nick and Borna were given code violations for smashing rackets but it was Nick who got the further warning which resulted in a point penalty in the final set for telling someone in the crowd to f**k off…

However there was some tennis played this afternoon;

We saw the full repertoire of Nick on offer once again today with his big serve, forehand, the tweener and plenty of net play but Coric stayed focused.

Coric was up 3-1 in the first set and before you knew it despite Nick having some knee problems the first set was over with Nick winning 5 of the next 6 games and it really rilled the Croat.

It did at one point look like from going bad to worse for Borna who found himself down 0-30 on serve but really pulled out his serve and ground strokes to recover from this position.

Another moment in the second set which for me took the momentum away from Nick is Borna not giving up on a point and Nick should have put it away but was maybe a bit too showy with it and Borna just completely gave everything and Nick put the overhead long and that ignited the Croat to go for it.

Following a slow start to the season the quarter finals here are well deserved and now has a match against Felix to prepare for!
