Nick Kyrgios fights back to stun Greek fourth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in a heated four-set encounter and reach the fourth round at Wimbledon.

Venue: All England Club Dates: 27 June-10 July
Coverage: Live across BBC TV, radio and online with extensive coverage on BBC iPlayer, Red Button, Connected TVs and mobile app.

In a remarkable incident-packed match, Kyrgios called for Tsitsipas to be defaulted after the 23-year-old hit a ball into the crowd and narrowly missed a spectator when he lost the second set.

The Australian had already received a warning for an obscenity by then, while Tsitsipas was given a point penalty for a second code violation as he sent a ball away in frustration.

But it was 2014 quarter-finalist Kyrgios who eventually came through in an enthralling final tie-break with his second match point to win 6-7 (2-7) 6-4 6-3 7-6 (9-7) in front of a captivated crowd under the Court One roof.

He will play American Brandon Nakashima next, after the 20-year-old world number 56 beat Colombian Daniel Galan 6-4 6-4 6-1.
