The Canberran took a breathtaking lead of two sets over the third seed Dominic Thiem, but then turned on the crowd that seemed to inspire him and melted

In both the fourth and fifth sets, Kyrgios was able to walk from head to toe with Thiem on serve – which increased dramatically after the second set thanks to his incredible fitness – before finally cracking

The third seed finally matched his performance from the US Open final and came back in two sets to pick up a stunner, 4-6 4-6 6-3 6-4 6-4

This is the second time that Kyrgios has lost a two-set match at the Australian Open after defeating Andreas Seppi in 2017 in five sets

Thiem meets Grigor Dimitrov in the fourth round. Dimitrov only played seven games on Friday, thanks to the resignation of opponent Pablo Carreno Busta

The atmosphere in the John Cain Arena certainly contributed to the opening game of the game, in which Kyrgios Thiem’s ​​serve broke and then solidified for a 2-0 lead

“There is no doubt that he (Thiem) is mega tight, mega nervous,” said commentator Jim Courier to Nine

Thiem had problems serving and only got 48 percent of his first serves during the opening set

On the return of Kyrgios’ serve, the Austrian was also incredibly far from the baseline and gave Kyrgios the opportunity to use his beloved armpit tactic

The partisan crowd helped Kyrgios find his way to a 6-4 set The Canberran is 35-5 at slam level if he wins the opener

Kyrgios had a break of 1: 1 in the second set, but an aggressive Thiem was able to save her with a backhand winner

A “rattling” Thiem continued to make unusual mistakes – and then an armpit throw converted a setpoint for Kyrgios and set it to two sentences

Jim Courier claimed that Thiem “armored” the last game of the second set, and that the Austrian had to secure two breakpoints in the first game of the third set

But then things turned. Thiem earned his first breakpoint 1-0 and finally turned one on the third opportunity before Kyrgios got frustrated

“What the hell are you doing?” Kyrgios muttered to himself, received a code violation and apparently frustrated with the crowd making noise during one point. A report from the crowd suggested he even delivered the middle finger

After a bad return, he said to himself “Yes, good return, Nick”, in a worrying sign for the Aussie, when Thiem took a 3-0 lead

Kyrgios then blew through his service games, but also Thiem – which led to a Kyrgios bat blow – with the number three in the world, who finally won the third set 6: 3, an urgently needed steady

In the fourth sentence, Kyrgios begged the umpire to tell the crowd to shut up, adding, “You only told them once, you have to tell them again”

The first game of the fourth set alone lasted 13 minutes, with Kyrgios having to secure two breakpoints before he finally scored 1-0

The slog of a set lasted another 20 minutes, until both men had held the serve for 3: 2. Up to this point, Thiem had won 21 consecutive points on the serve

For Kyrgios it got nervous again when he had to save two breakpoints at 4-4 and 15-40 – the latter came off his frame due to a failure. Then two unnecessary tweeners, who failed, saw him in front of another breakpoint, the Thiem for 5-4 converted

Kyrgios then received a point penalty for shooting a ball into the stands after a break, so that Thiem could serve for the set from 15: 0

This turned out to be costly as Kyrgios actually earned a breakpoint at 30-40 but couldn’t convert it and a backhand was millimeters wide on the target line

However, it was his screaming that cost him 0-40 and 1-2 and was penalized for obstacles after telling the ball to sit in the middle

At 3: 3, Kyrgios was leading by 40: 30, but a breathtaking drop shot and a fatal backhand from Thiem gave him a breakpoint.The Austrian could not implement it, his pass fell just short – but he earned a second after one Kyrgios mistake and Kyrgios sent the next ball into the net to pursue 3-4

After Kyrgios broke, he raged to the referee about the shot clock – only the last of many victims of his anger that night

Fans were informed upon entering Melbourne Park that they must be home by midnight and that they must leave by 11:30 p.m. local time at the latest. The match ended before 11 p.m.

There is also plenty of intrigue in the two main venues of Melbourne Park on Friday evening

Former Australian Open finalist Simona Halep has stepped up her game at the Rod Laver Arena to fight rising Russian star Veronika Kudermetova

Halep was seriously spooked in the second round by Australian Ajla Tomljanovic, who had to come back down 2-5 in the third set but looked much better tonight with a 6-1 6-3 win

Now it’s another rising star, American Taylor Fritz, trying to do what so few men could – beat Novak Djokovic in Melbourne Park

The world number one has only lost one set in this tournament so far, a last-round draw against Frances Tiafoe, and has not been beaten since his career resurgence in Melbourne in mid-2018

In the opening set, Djokovic was broken while serving for it but fought back to win the tiebreaker 7-6 (1) The second set went much smoother, Djokovic claimed it 6-4

On Show Court 1 Felix Auger-Aliassime claimed the battle of Canada’s two great men’s hopes against Denis Shapovalov in straight sets

It was their third meeting at a slam – Shapovalov won the first round of the US Open in 2018 and 2019 – but the pair first met at junior level 12 years ago

Auger-Aliassime will next meet Russian Aslan Karatsev, who stunned Diego Schwartzman for the first time in his first appearance at a Grand Slam
