Nick Kyrgios Follows Up 220 Km/h Ace With Never-Before-Seen Underarm 'Tweener' Serve

Nick Kyrgios was having a lot of fun out there last night at the Australian Open.

When he wasn't doing Cristiano Ronaldo 'SIUUU' celebrations or taking cheeky sips of beer after matches, the Aussie was entertaining his home crowd with his sheer talent on the court.

Kyrgios ended up beating British star Liam Broady with relative ease to advance into the next round of the tournament where he'll face top seed Daniil Medvedev.

The Australian fan favourite looked impressive throughout, although one moment of magic stood out from the rest.

In their second game, Kyrgios won the point with a 220km/h ace which sailed straight past a rather helpless Broady who simply looked up and smirked in his opponent's direction.

It was 40-0.

But instead of producing another lightning-quick serve to close out the game, Kyrgios did something else entirely.

Clearly anticipating some pace, Broady decided to stand way further back from the bassline in order to give himself a chance.

Spotting this, Kyrgios pulled off a never-before-seen underarm serve from between his legs.

The shot caught Broady off guard, but the Brit scampered forward and managed to return the serve, only for it to sail out which handed Kyrgios the point.

Pure genius from the Aussie.

When footage of the wild play emerged on social media, it instantly racked up a load of views with hundreds of tennis fans singing Kyrgios' praises.

The 26-year-old almost didn't make the tournament altogether after catching Covid-19 just a few weeks out.

He has since recovered and looks healthy and confident ahead of his blockbuster clash against top seed Daniil Medvedev.

"I served f***ing well today," Kyrgios said after the match.

"When I tested positive it wasn't great news. I had some doubts, I couldn't ask for a better team honestly. My girlfriend was there for isolation.

"The first couple of days I was bedridden. I was concerned I wouldn't be physically ready to play. I'm so excited to be here and this is my favourite court in the world.

"I don't know what I have done to this crowd. You guys are like a zoo now. You guys are out of control.

"Medvedev is an amazing player. I'm not thinking about that. I have some doubles tomorrow."
