Nick Kyrgios impresses again with trick shot at the Japan Open

Published Add your comment

Nick Kyrgios left spectators lost for words after producing an incredible trick shot during his quarter-final match at the Japan Open. 

The Australian was rallying with opponent Gilles Muller, who himself hit a shot through his legs to return Kyrgios' ball.

The 21-year-old, not to be outdone, followed that with an audacious shot, gently returning the ball to Muller with his racket between his legs, before eventually winning the rally to top it all off.

Kyrgios went on to win the next point with a powerful volley and put himself 40-0 up in the game.

The Australian, who has a reputation of being one of the sport's 'bad boys', has had a good week so far, and made headlines for the right reasons on Tuesday.

With temperatures on court reaching above 30 degrees, Kyrgios took the time to send up water to a fan who had fallen ill in the stands during the first set.    

You can watch the rally and the trick shots below.

The distraction, which saw the game get paused for 10 minutes, did not affect the tournament's number six seed at all, and he defeated Ryan Harrison 7-5 6-2 in his opening match.

He was then handed a walkover victory after his second round opponent Radek Stepanek withdrew due to injury.

He should now be one of the favourites to win the Japan Open, after beating Muller to advance to the semi-finals earlier today.

He joins Gael Monfils, Marin Cilic, and David Goffin in the last four, and will be hoping to carry on his fine form against Frenchman Monfils on Saturday.
