Kyrgios stronger than injury

There is no stopping the march of Nick Kyrgios, who in the round of 16 managed to get the better of even a shoulder injury.

Indeed, the Australian tennis player prevailed in five sets over Brandon Nakashima of the United States with the scores of 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (7-2), 3-6, 6-2.

A hard-fought match that, despite the five sets and the problem suffered by Kyrgios, lasted just over three hours.

Now the executioner of Stefanos Tsitsipas will face Chilean Cristian Garin, victorious over the other Australian Alex De Minaur, in the quarters.

Sunday, meanwhile, came Jannik Sinner’s important affirmation against Carlos Alcaraz. By defeating the predestined of the predestined, the South Tyrolean clinched a place in the quarterfinals in which he will face Novak Djokovic, the world’s No. 1 tennis player and defending champion on London’s grass: in the final last year, the Serb got the better of Matteo Berrettini, whose Wimbledon this year has not even begun.
