All the more reason for Kyrgios

Nick Kyrgios is the first Australian male finalist at Wimbledon since Mark Philippoussis, who played the last act in 2003, losing it to Roger Federer, and he will do everything in his power to become the first male Australian to win Wimbledon since Lleyton Hewitt, who won on London’s grass in 2002, beating Nalbandian.

Should Kyrgios succeed in the feat of folding Djokovic, he will be the fifth male Australian to win Wimbledon in the Open Era after Rod Laver (1968 and 1969), John Newcombe (1970 and 1971), Pat Cash (1987) and precisely Lleyton Hewitt, a triumphant winner exactly 20 years ago.
