He tried a few 'tweeners. He was held up by the umpire when he wanted to serve at times due to Nadal not being ready.

There will also be some earnest tsk tsking because Kyrgios was seen enjoying himself at a pub in the Wimbledon village on the evening before his match, not home crocheting a rug or, even less likely, resting for his game against the most physically robust player in the game's history. At his news conference, Kyrgios' insults of choice were "horrendous" and "terrible".

"I was aware of everything", said Nadal, who was winning his 50th match at Wimbledon.

Nadal said: "A tough opponent".

Part of that is because a 19-year-old Kyrgios beat then-No.

Juliet Lee, 54, of Germantown, Md., and Sarah Reinecke, 32, of Seattle, tied for third with 23. His longtime foe, Japan's Takeru Kobayashi , no longer takes part in the contest.


The No. 2-seeded Nadal is seeking his third Wimbledon title but first since 2010.

"I'm still going out there today and able to bring a level that can compete with one of the world's best and have chances to the win the match".

Nadal took the first set before Kyrgios fired back to tie the match in the second. I played a couple of loose points here or there.

China's Wang Qiang, seeded number 15, eased past Tamara Zidansek of Slovenia 6-1, 6-2 to reach the women's singles third round for the first time at Wimbledon.

The 32-year-old Scotsman and his French partner Pierre-Hugues Herbert gelled as the match went on winning in four sets over Marius Copil and Ugo Humbert, 4-6, 6-1, 6-4, 6-0. "She's obviously an incredible champion; I have huge respect for her", Davis said. "I couldn't really tell if it was Centre Court or Court 1, actually". Number nine seed John Isner plays Kazakhstan's Mikhail Kukushkin on Court Three, followed by number 12 seed Fabio Fognini against Hungary's Marton Fucsovics.

The hard-serving American was one set away from the victory but lost 6-4, 6-7 (3), 4-6, 6-1, 6-4 on No. 3 Court.

Raging after losing a challenge on his first serve in the eighth game, Kyrgios promptly smashed down an unstoppable, untouchable second serve clocked at 143mph (230kph).

Isner reached his first Grand Slam semifinal at Wimbledon previous year before losing a five-setter to Anderson that lasted more than 6½ hours, the second-longest match in Grand Slam history.

Ninth-seeded Isner, who played in the epic semi-final a year ago with Kevin Anderson which lasted over six hours, fell in five sets to unseeded Kazakh Mikhail Kukushkin 6-4, 6-7 (3/7), 4-6, 6-1, 6-4 in just over three hours of play. Johnson won fewer total points (150-149), earned fewer service breaks (3-2) and made almost twice as many unforced errors (45-25). But he wound up holding serve, then celebrating like he'd won the match, leaping and yelling and punching the air.

Johnson's best Grand Slam showing was a fourth-round run at the All England Club in 2016, which ended with a loss to Federer.
