Wimbledon 2022: Nick Kyrgios beats Brandon Nakashima at All England Club

Nick Kyrgios' entertaining Wimbledon run continued as he shrugged off a shoulder injury to beat American Brandon Nakashima and reach his first major quarter-final in seven years.

The Australian was more subdued than in his fiery match against Stefanos Tsitsipas, staying largely quiet in a 4-6 6-4 7-6 (7-2) 3-6 6-2 win.

Victory came despite needing a medical timeout and regular physio treatment.

Kyrgios, 27, will play Chile's Cristian Garin in the last eight on Wednesday.

"It wasn't anywhere near my best performance level-wise but I'm super happy to get through and I fought really hard," said Kyrgios, who is ranked 40th in the world.
