Nadal defeated his fierce rival 6-3, 3-6, 7-6(5), 7-6(3) in an epic second-round clash at the All England Club.
The heated match was full of controversy, none more so than when Kyrgios lashed a ferocious forehand directly at the chest of Nadal.
The world No 2 responded by holding a death stare at Kyrgios for a good five seconds.
After the match, Kyrgios gave a brutally honesty press conference before leaving the grounds and heading straight out to party.
While drinking, the Australian did an Instagram Live video and his brother joined on a split-screen from a different location.
Christos then proceeded to call Nadal a “f****** p****” while Kyrgios continuously referred to the Spaniard as ‘Ralf’.
The 24-year-old even admitted to mocking his opponent at several times during the game.
“Bro every time he hit a good shot I turned to my box and was like ‘yep, goodbye Ralf’,” Kyrgios said.
Both players were desperate to win the grudge match which at times felt more personal than just a tennis match.
Nonetheless, the standard of play was by far the highest seen in the tournament so far this year.
Kyrgios even remained ultra professional in the final two sets, with limited trick shots and underarm serves.
And the world No 43 was happy with his efforts in the brutal tie.
“I thought I started a little slow, but I thought he played really well today,” he said in his press conference.
“I knew his game plan, I got onto it pretty quickly. He directed most of his serves to my forehand. He hasn’t really done that in the past.
“It’s definitely my weaker return. He was definitely trying to stay away from my backhand return a lot.
“But I thought just on big points, I mean, he played well. Hit his forehand extremely well. When Rafa plays well, he hits his forehand line extremely well.
“I thought today he was on fire with that shot. Every time he redirected, he was hitting balls just within the line, so…
“I thought it was a high-level match. Two tiebreaks. I played a couple of loose points here or there. That’s all it takes against a player like that. He was just too good today.”
