Nick Kyrgios has once again proven his scintillating talent after romping to his second win in three weeks over world number two Novak Djokovic at Indian Wells on Wednesday.
Djokovic, who was unbeaten at the tournament since 2013, found Kyrgios' serve just too much to handle, and never recovered after being broken in the first game of the match.
Kyrgios went on to close out the game in straight sets after Djokovic forced a tie-break in the second.
Fittingly, Kyrgios ended the tie with a monstrous serve having earlier clocked a serve at a blistering 141mph.
After reaching the last four in Miami last year, Kyrgios is looking to secure only his second ATP Masters Tour 1000 semi-final but faces the prospect of going head-to-head with Roger Federer in the next round.
This will not phase the 21-year-old, however, as it seems he enjoys having a dig at the big boys. In fact, the World Number 16 has won 80% of his matches against Djokovic, Federer, and Nadal, which is a remarkable record against such illustrious opposition.

Kyrgios can be unstoppable when things are going his way, as shown by the way he made light work of Djokovic, however, he has a propensity for total and utter emotional meltdown when on the ropes.
This has always been a stumbling block for the talented Australian, and he has been let down by his temper time and time again.
Despite this, he has shown himself to have a more than suitable big-game mentality and can become one hell of a force on the World Tour if he can get passed his temper issues.
In his current form, Federer will be wary of having to face him and will need to find a way to handle the Australian's scorching serve if he wishes to have any chance of beating him.
Kyrgios will be eager to continue on his merry way and solidify his standing against the big boys of world tennis.
