+ Sarasota Open winner defeats Nadal
From Longboat Key to the grass courts of the All England Club, Australian teenager Nick Kyrgios is making his presence known in the tennis world.
Kyrgios, currently No. 144 in the rankings, upset 14-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal in the fourth round of Wimbledon Tuesday. The unseeded Kyrgios, 19, defeated Nadal, the No. 1 player in the world, in four sets.
Kyrgios won the men’s singles Sarasota Open title in April, defeating Serbian Filip Krajinovic 7-6 (10), 6-4.
Another tennis star with Longboat Key connections didn’t fare as well Tuesday, as No. 5 Maria Sharapova fell to ninth-seeded Angelique Kerber in a three-set fourth-round matchup.
