Rafael Nadal takes on Nick Kyrgios in the fourth round of the 2014 Wimbledon Championships on Centre Court in the All England Club, London, on Tuesday.

Where to Watch Live

The play is set to begin at 3pm BST. Live coverage is on BBC One or BBC Two. Live scores, regular updates, radio commentary and the live streaming link will be available on Wimbledon's official website.


Rafael Nadal comes into his fourth round match on the back of two four set wins against Lukas Rosol and Mikhail Kukushkin. However, against the Kazak player, Nadal looked at his clinical best after losing the first set. He went on to win 6-7, 6-1, 6-1, 6-1.

The world number one is on-course to add to his two titles in 2008 and 2010 and become only the second player in the open era to record three back-to-back Roland Garros and Wimbledon titles in the same year. He could be facing his toughest challenge yet when he goes up against the rising star of the ATP tour Nick Kyrgios.

The Australian teenager, ranked 144 in the world has been in top form in only his second main draw at a grand slam event. Kyrgios will be the first player since Florian Mayer in 2004 to make it to the quarter-finals on his debut at SW19.

If the Spaniard manages to overcome the hurdle, which he is favourite to do, he will face either Milos Raonic or Kei Nishikori in the quarter-finals. If all goes well and according to plan, a mouthwatering semi-final between Federer and Nadal, the two greats of the modern era, could be on the cards.


This will be the first meeting between the pair. They have never played each other before at an ATP World Tour, Grand Slam or Davis Cup main draw event.

What They Say

Rafael Nadal: [on Nick Kyrgios] "Young players are very dangerous as they always have something special. They are able to play with no pressure. They are fresh. He has a great serve. He's an aggressive player."
