He was broken serving for the match at 5-4, and was 5-2 down in the tiebreaker before squandering two match points and losing it. Kyrgios was warned for an audible obscenity in the changeover, and took out his frustration on Stepanek by rolling through the fourth set.Stepanek, trying at 37 to become the oldest man to win a Grand Slam match since Jimmy Connors at the 1992 U.S. Open, didnt serve well enough and was always under pressure.Kyrgios was a Wimbledon quarterfinalist on debut in 2014, and departed in the fourth round last year in a loss which included a code violation for swearing and unsportsmanlike conduct against the umpire.Hes seeded to meet Andy Murray in the fourth round.---2:05 p.m.French seeds Richard Gasquet and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga moved into the second round of Wimbledon with straight-set wins.No. 7 Gasquet swept past Britains Aljaz Bedene 6-3, 6-4, 6-3, while No. 12 Tsonga got past Spains Inigo Cervantes 6-4, 7-6 (5), 6-4.Gasquet reached the Wimbledon semifinals last year, while Tsonga made it to the semis in 2011 and 2012.---1:10 p.m.Leave it to showman Nick Kyrgrios to pull off a shot like this.The Australian hit a between-the-legs shot -- a tweener -- from behind the baseline that sailed over Radek Stepaneks head at the net and dropped in for a perfect lob winner.The shot came in the opening game of third set, with Kyrgios already up two sets to love.Two years ago at Wimbledon, Kyrgios hit a tweener for a winning drop shot in his upset victory over Rafael Nadal.---12:30 p.m.Nick Kyrgios has grabbed the early advantage in his intriguing battle of the generations against Radek Stepanek in the opening round of Wimbledon.The 21-year-old Australian took the first set 6-4 against the 37-year-old Stepanek, who is bidding to become the oldest man to win a Grand Slam match since Jimmy Connors reached the second round of the 1992 U.S. Open at the age of 40.Kyrgios, who reached the quarterfinals here in 2014, went up 4-1 before Stepanek fought back to 4-4.

Australias decision to rest Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood might have contributed to their being thrashed 5-0 in the one-day series in South Africa, but Hazlewood is confident that he will be better for the break this Test summer.While Steven Smith and his men fly home from their disappointing tour of South Africa, Hazlewood is in Sydney preparing to play in the later stages of the Matador Cup for New South Wales. Fridays game against Victoria will be his first competitive outing since Australias one-day series in Sri Lanka in late August.Australia used three previously uncapped fast men during the South Africa campaign - Chris Tremain, Joe Mennie and Daniel Worrall - and although they all showed promise at times, overall it was a major step up for the trio. But despite the 5-0 result in the ODIs, Australia must now hope the decision to rest Hazlewood and Starc pays off in next months Test series against South Africa.Sri Lanka was a long tour physically and mentally, Hazlewood told reporters in Sydney on Thursday. And with a lot of cricket coming up I think the rest was valid.However, the absence of Starc and Hazlewood did not help Australias cause in the ODI series, during which Scott Boland and John Hastings were the senior fast bowlers in the side. Tremain finished as Australias leading wicket taker with seven at 36.42, Mennie had a poor debut but bounced back with 3 for 49 in the final game, and Worrall went wicketless in his two ODIs against South Africa.It is an opportunity to see some younger guys, Smith saiid after the final game in Cape Town. Wholesale Chicago Bulls Jerseys. I think with the schedule these days and the amount we play, its impossible particularly for fast bowlers to sustain bowling at good pace for long periods of time.Weve chosen to give Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood a rest for this series. Its given an opportunity for a few younger guys to come in and try and impress. Its been a very tough series for everyone, but Im sure theyll learn a lot out of it.Ive never played in a one-day series where weve lost all five games. Its been a difficult task. Weve been outplayed. But the group has stuck together well. Were always looking at ways we can improve ... We just havent been able to go out there and do the business. Weve had a pretty inexperienced side, to be fair.Smith also highlighted the lack of runs from the batting order, aside from David Warner, as a key reason Australia were unable to win a match. Warner finished as the leading run scorer from either side, with 386 at 77.20 including two centuries, and he is comfortably top of the ODI run list from all countries for the 2016 calendar year, in which he has made five hundreds.We just havent been able to put enough partnerships together, Smith said. Weve had guys who have had starts and not been able to go on with it. Having said that, Davey was magnificent today. To score 170 out of our 290 was remarkable. The rest of us werent good enough.
