Top seed Daniil Medvedev beaten by Nick Kyrgios at US Open.
The world has seen a few strange matches at Wimbledon, so far.
Nick Kyrgios, a 6-foot world number four, took down his first-round opponent of the tournament, 18-year-old Daniil Medvedev, in the third round.
The 6-foot-9, 19-year-old Ukrainian, Kyrgios, who won a US$2.1 million prize, was playing in his first Grand Slam tournament. He lost 6-2, 6-1.
But the former number one-ranked player and two-time major champion is not the only one in the making.
The 21-year-old American, who upset the defending Wimbledon champion, Novak Djokovic, in the third round, would go on to meet the best player he has ever played.

The world’s number one player, Novak Djokovic, is one of the favourites to win the Wimbledon title after his victory.
But the two-time Grand Slam champion, along with his good friend and friend, Roger Federer, are not the only ones to be in the Wimbledon mix.
There are some young stars entering the draw that have not yet played a major final on grass or at least done so on grass.
One such young player is 19-year-old American Kyle Edmund.
The American reached the fourth round of the US Open in 2014.
In 2018, he reached the final of the U.S. hardcourt title.
This year in London, he lost to Kyle Edmund of the United States.
This has not been the first time Edmund has been on the losing side of a match to a young star.
