Nick Kyrgios’ entertaining Wimbledon run continued as he shrugged off a shoulder injury to beat American Brandon Nakashima and reach his first major quarter-final in seven years.

The Australian was more subdued than in his fiery match against Stefanos Tsitsipas, staying largely quiet in a 4-6 6-4 7-6 (7-2) 3-6 6-2 win.

Victory came despite needing a medical timeout and regular physio treatment.

Kyrgios, 27, will play Chile’s Cristian Garin in the last eight on Wednesday.

Unseeded Garin, 26, prevented an all-Australian encounter by fighting back from two sets down – and saving two match points in the fifth – to beat 19th seed Alex de Minaur.

The world number 43, more of a clay-court specialist, reached his first major quarter-final with a 2-6 5-7 7-6 (7-3) 6-4 7-6 (10-6) victory.
