Social media has been thrown into a spin after Nick Kyrgios' stunning victory against world No.1 Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon earlier Wednesday morning.
Kyrgios, aged 19, and ranked 144th, has reached the Wimbledon quarter-finals by stunning world No.1 Rafael Nadal in four sets on centre court in one of the great grand slam upsets.
Nick Kyrgios 'tweener' a hit
The between-the-legs shot is usually a trick by Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, but Australian teenager Nick Kyrgios showed how to do it with flair and win the Wimbledon crowd.
His tweets of elation, and a little disbelief, have been retweeted thousands of times in a matter of hours.
Erm, ok then...........— Nicholas Kyrgios (@NickKyrgios) July 1, 2014
The first man in a decade to reach the last eight here on debut served out the match to love, 7-6 (7-5), 5-7, 7-6 (7-5), 6-3 with a 37th ace in two minutes short of two hours.
The praise has come from far and wide: from the suburbs of Canberra to the Wimbledon stands and US media.
Prime Minister Tony Abbott was quick to tweet his praise along with Socceroo legend Tim Cahill. And the Canberra teenager has been compared to the Kingslayer from Game of Thrones, naturally.
Hugh Jackman was quick to praise the Canberran's composure and class, while another user said Canberra has not had this much excitement "since a swan crapped on the Bob Menzies statue at last year's Floriade".
