Watching Wimbledon and Aussie teenager Nick Kyrgios is taking it to Raffa Nadal in the first set. Kyrgios is killing it right now.

This kid's the real deal. Just taken the first set in powerful style.

Exciting stuff this. He has big guts too - he came back to win the other night from 2 sets down. Amazing poise from one so young.

That was a performance for the ages. Raffa was a star as ever, but Nick Kyrgios just introduced himself big time.

So glad I stayed up to watch.

I like to play more than I like to watch. Although I'm fucking terrible at it.

This is how you play against the world #1 at the round of 16 at Wimbledon:

Yeah, he did really well in the end. What I like most about him is his attitude - he's pretty grounded, quite humble and gives a fun and interesting interview as well, which makes for a pleasant change from the usual Aussie Sportsman standard automated responses.

Big things are expected now, let's see how he does.

Milos Raonic and Eugenie Bouchard have Canadians hooked on tennis more than I've ever seen in my lifetime. Even as someone who's only ever vaguely followed tennis, it's pretty exciting.

Also, "Another game for Milos!" when he wins will never get old.

Watching the Federer Murray semi. Murray serving at 4-5 in the second set was one of the most enjoyable and amazing games of tennis I've ever seen.

Great hold by Murray in the end, pity he couldn't hold on for the set.

Amazing!
I just hope it's all above board. They're tested a ton, though, so I don't see how it wouldn't be.

He has to be considered in the conversation for greatest athlete ever.

No order:

Federer, Gretzky, Jordan, Brady, Phelps, Bolt, maybe Messi. That's my list.
