Nick Kyrgios defeats Kyle Edmund at Queens


NICK KYRGIOS hit a stunning tweener which has been labelled “one of the best shots ever” by BBC commentator Andrew Castle.

Kyrgios put on another exhilarating display against Kyle Edmund on Centre Court at Queen’s this afternoon.

The Australian took the first set to a tiebreak before serving his way to a 7-6 victory.

Edmund saved four break points in the second set before they needed another decider – but this time it went the way of the Brit 6-7.

However, in the second game of the final set Kygrios did really well to stay in the point and as Edmund moved to the net to hit a winner, Kyrgios responded with an outrageous tweener lob which landed just inside the baseline.

The exquisite shot drew vast applause from the full Centre Court and Castle also hailed the move.

“That is one of the best shots that I have ever seen, the technique on that is incredible,” Castle said.

It took until the second set for the Australian to produce the first tweener of the match with a close-net return to hold serve.

But it was the stunning lob which will be remembered most by the watching faithful.

Kyrgios went on to win the match by taking the final set 6-3 and fellow BBC pundit John Lloyd hailed his trick shots.

“It might be one of the best shots that I’ve ever seen in a match,” Lloyd added.

“I mean, how can you not love him when he does stuff like that.

“It is just fantastic.”
