Associated Press
LONDON ó For the third year in a row, Rafael Nadal is making an early exit from Wimbledon after a stunning loss to a player ranked 100th or worse.
Nick Kyrgios, a 19-year-old wild card from Australia with a world ranking of 144, served 37 aces and used a fearless go-for-broke style to beat the No. 1-ranked Nadal 7-6 (5), 5-7, 7-6 (5), 6-3 and reach the quarterfinals.
Playing in his first Wimbledon and second major, Kyrgios is the first player outside the top 100 to defeat a No. 1 at a Grand Slam since No. 193 Andrei Olhovskiy downed Jim Courier in the third round at Wimbledon in 1992.
Kyrgios served out the match at love, hitting an ace on match point. Heís the first man to get to the quarterfinals in his Wimbledon debut in 10 years.
