Nick Kyrgios matures at Wimbledon

At just 19 years of age, Australia’s bright new tennis hope Nick Kyrgios has snared an incredible comeback victory over Frenchman Richard Gasquet in the second round at Wimbledon.

Kyrgios, with a world ranking of 144, came from two sets down to stun 13th seed Gasquet, eventually prevailing 3-6 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 7-5 10-8 after an epic duel.

The underdog saved an All England Club record nine match points during the marathon fifth set, before showing remarkable composure and fortitude to close out the match.

Gasquet was glowing in his praise of his teenaged conqueror, rating Kyrgios a future grand slam champion.
