2020 Australian Open R4 Rafael Nadal bt. Nick Kyrgios 6-3 3-6 7-6(6) 7-6(4)
Next - Dominic Thiem
Rafa: "I think I played well from the baseline, changing directions, changing rhythms, playing aggressive with my forehand and backhand."
"The problem is when he's serving, you don't have many chances. You are under pressure the whole match."
"When he's focused on what he's doing, I think he's a very important player for our sport because he has a big talent," Nadal said.
"He's one of these players that can be very, very interesting for the crowd. I am never against his way or style to play. When I criticize him in the past is because I think he did a couple of things that are not right and are not the right image for our sport and for the kids. But when he's doing the right things, I am the first one who support this".
“I think everybody likes to watch Nick plays when he's able to play like this. His talent is to be one of the best of the world, without a doubt, with good chances to fight for every tournament."
