- Australian records remarkable three-set win
- Former world No 13 is booed by home crowd
Nick Kyrgios has returned serve at Rafael Nadal, saying he wouldn’t “listen at all” to the world No 2 after the Spaniard said he needed to show more respect to himself, his opponents and the crowd.
The Australian displayed some of his best form when beating Nadal in a tight three-setter at the Mexican Open on Wednesday in Acapulco, saving three match points to register a 3-6, 7-6 (7-2), 7-6 (8-6) victory, his best result in almost two years. But the high-quality spectacle didn’t translate into positive words for the former world No 13.
