Nick Kyrgios reaches final eight of US Men’s Clay Court Championships in Houston

Australia’s Nick Kyrgios has beaten American seventh seed Tommy Paul in straight sets to storm into the last eight of the US Men’s Clay Court Championships in Houston.

Australian wildcard Kyrgios, currently world number 94, maintained his impressive recent form by dispatching Paul 6-4, 6-2.

Kyrgios, who reached the fourth round at last week’s Miami Open and the quarter-finals at last month’s Indian Wells, followed up his first win on clay since 2019 when he beat Mackenzie McDonald in three sets on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old from Canberra was solid again on serve, blasting 10 aces and saving all six of his breaks points in the first meeting between the pair.
