Kyrgios’ first service game featured a 125 miles per hour second serve ace and an underarm serve but mostly Kyrgios wowed with the quality of his play, breaking Djokovic in the fifth game and clinching the set with his seventh ace.
Novak interrupted Kyrgios’ serve for the first time in three meetings and led 3-1, and the Aussie began to channel his stress into showdowns in his support box.
