Nick Kyrgios (EZONE DR 98, POLYTOUR PRO 120) has powered his way into Wimbledon’s fourth round with a win over veteran Feliciano Lopez. The 21-year-old Australian boasted a strong service game, sealing the opening set with an ace—one out of 27 throughout the match. After being drawn even by his Spanish opponent, Nick attacked the remaining sets in signature style, dazzling the crowd and forcing errors on his opponent with his sublime combination of explosive power and flair. “I got a lot more out of my serve and from the baseline,” commented Nick on his serve on the official Wimbledon website. Booking the first win of his career over the Spaniard, Nick advanced with a final score of 6-3, 6-7(2), 6-3, 6-4. He will meet Andy Murray in round 4.

Fellow Australian Lleyton Hewitt (VCORE Tour 97, Yonex Shoes) emerged out of retirement to play in the men’s doubles tournament, winning his first round match partnered with compatriot Jordan Thompson. The all-Australian duo faced the all-Spanish team of Nicolas Almagro and David Marrero in a tight encounter that ended at 6-7(6), 6-4, 19-17 in favor of the Australians.

After securing the pivotal opening set, the Australian Open champion cruised through the second to win 7-6(11) 6-1.
