It was as superb win for Khachanov who overcame 31 aces from Kyrgios and very vocal support for the ustralian to win the 5-setter after almost four hours of play. He was very excited after the match exclaiming:
"I did it! I did it!. I'm really proud of myself, I was focused from the beginning to the end. It was a crazy match but I came ready to fight and to play five sets."
He further added:
“From the beginning until the end, great performance - at least I will talk about myself, from my side. I stayed there. I waited for my chances. I created them as well. I'm super happy, super proud that I could finish the match, I could take it. Serving for the match [is] never easy. [I am] just super happy to do this step forward to make my first semi-final.”
