LONDON - Australian teenager Nick Kyrgios has pulled off one of the biggest upsets in Wimbledon history, defeating world No.1 Rafael Nadal in four sets to reach the quarter-finals.

The 19-year-old Kyrgios, making his Wimbledon debut, clinched a fearless 7-6 (7-5) 5-7 7-6 (7-5) 6-3 victory to become the first wildcard in 10 years to make the quarter-finals at the All England Club.

"I was in a bit of a zone out there, it hasn't sunk in yet," Kyrgios said.

He is also the first player ranked outside the top 100 to defeat a world No.1 since Andrei Olhovskiy stunned Jim Courier in the Wimbledon third round in 1992.
