WATCH: Nick Kyrgios wins sensational point as he sets up clash with Stefanos Tsitsipas
Nick Kyrgios and Stefanos Tsitsipas will meet in a mouthwatering Citi Open semi-final after both game through their last-eight clashes on Friday.
Australian Kyrgios was in particularly sparkling form, as he won a sensational point during his 6-3, 6-3 win over Slovakia’s Norbert Gombos.
Kyrgios looked to be struggling on ever shot during the rally, but showed incredible foot-speed and court-smarts to keep himself in the point long enough to win it.
Nobody will ever know how @NickKyrgios won this point!

Tsitsipas, meanwhile, who is the top seed in the competition, easily overcame tenth seen Benoit Paire 7-5, 6-0 to earn his spot in the semis.
“I think we both maybe want to get to know each other a little bit better,” Kyrgios said earlier this week on Tsitsipas, with whom he has been partnering in the doubles this week.
“He’s one of the best players in the world at the moment.”
On facing Nick Kyrgios, Tsitsipas added, “He’s unpredictable. You never know what to expect from him.
“His serve I think is the biggest weapon in his game. I’m going to have to be careful of his shot selection, trying to execute and not play his game, play my game.”
The other semi-final will see Daniil Medvedev of Russia, the third seed, play Germany’s Peter Gojowczyk.
