It would seem Nick Kyrgios is never not making headlines, but this time it's in his favour having beat Novak Djokovic for the second time in a fortnight, setting him up for the quarter-final against Roger Federer in Indian Wells.
"I'm very impressed him taking out Novak, back-to-back weeks, on Novak's best surface", Federer said.
"I think about Fed and Rafa, the most wonderful thing is both of them are still unbelievably motivated after all the time they've played to continue to play at this level", Gilbert said.
Roger Federer has admitted that the match against Rafael Nadal was easy "physically" unlike their three and a half hour battle at the Australian Open final earlier in the year.
Also joining Kyrgios in the quarterfinals were No. 4 seed Kei Nishikori, who defeated Donald Young 6-2 6-4; 17th-seeded Jack Sock, a 4-6 7-6 (1) 7-5 victor over Malek Jaziri; No. 21 Pablo Carreno Busta, who beat qualifier Dusan Lajovic; and No. 27 Pablo Cuevas, who outlasted 11th-seeded David Goffin 6-3 3-6 6-3.
"I don't take these decisions lightly, these are the matches we train for, but I'm in no fit state to take the court".
"(But) it's just another match for me.
Although he captured his 18th Grand Slam title in Melbourne, 35-year-old Federer said he still considers himself on the comeback trail after knee surgery sidelined him for much of 2016.
The tone was set in the opening game where Federer sent down two scorching backhand winners to take Nadal's serve and a second break soon after wrapped up the set in just 36 minutes.
Kyrgios has not only defeated Djokovic, the Australian has got the better off Nadal and Federer in the past as well. "And really, since this year, I feel super comfortable with the racquet, and I think I have also gained confidence stepping into it".
In the women's draw, world No. 3 Karolina Pliskova reached the semi-finals after edging French Open champion Garbine Muguruza 7-6 (2), 7-6 (5).
"I'm sorry to the fans that I'm unable to take to the court but I have to put my health first and I hope you understand".
Kyrgios also beat the Serb in their first ever meeting at Acapulco just two weeks ago and became only the second man, after compatriot Lleyton Hewitt, to beat Federer, Djokovic and Nadal in his first meeting with each player. "So to be back on court feeling normal again is so nice".
Speaking to the crowd, Federer repeated that he's still on the comeback from the knee problems that led him to take time off from tournament play after Wimbledon a year ago.
"For me, it was all about coming out and trying to play the way I did in Australia".
