Incredibly, for two players who seem to have been on the scene forever, Bernard Tomic and Nick Kyrgios have never played a competitive match against each other.

However, Tomic, who has returned from a tough injury spell that saw him drop down to 243 in the world rankings, won the match in controversial fashion.

Tomic ended his victory with a flourish, sending over a sneaky serve on match point by hitting the ball between his legs for a victor ― a move which totally caught Kyrgios off guard.

The world number 83's good-natured 6-3, 6-4 victory over his longtime friend Kyrgios ended with a flourish when he sent down the sneaky serve, while bouncing another ball, on match point. "He won a title previous year and it looks like he is carrying a bit of momentum which is good to see... he looks happy, he looks healthy".

Australian tennis player Tomic didn't back down while describing how he feels about the balls used which will be used at the Australian Open this year.

In fact, the first shot was completely legal and caught Kyrgios flat-footed as the equally-stunned umpire called game, set and match to Tomic.

AT&T gets mocked by Verizon, T-Mobile for fake 5G network
In reality, AT&T hasn't really deployed a 5G network yet - it's just renaming LTE Advanced and LTE Advanced Pro to 5GE. T-Mobile CEO John Legere said in a characteristically enthusiastic statement announcing the results.

Kyrgios, who lost in the second round in Brisbane last week, had a break-point early in the second but was unable to consolidate with Tomic then breaking at 3-3.

"I want to be as healthy and fresh as possible heading into next week".

Kyrgios said he was happy to see Tomic back in form after missing the 2018 Open with his ranking plummeting to as low as 243 through the year.

"I'll get on site at Melbourne Park, fine-tune my game a little bit and make sure the body's right".

"He was serving well but I think I returned well", Tomic said.

"I'll worry about that (the Open) come Sunday or Monday, whenever we're finished here", Barty said after storming into the semi-finals on Thursday with a straight-sets defeat of world No.12 Elise Mertens.
