And then once I got myself into the match, I felt like I was able to dictate a lot of the points. I thought tactically I played a good match.said Murray.

Krygios said that he never expected to break into the quarter-finals and that it was a huge surprise for him.
I was obviously out for a couple weeks before Sydney. I wasn't expecting, you know, anything, especially not quarter-finals. And, yeah, it's just massive, especially to do it in front of your home crowdsaid Kyrgios after the win. He now joins an elite band of players in the quarter-finals and it is clearly game on!
