LONDON (AP) -- Teenager Nick Kyrgios saved nine match points before beating No. 13 seed Richard Gasquet 3-6, 6-7 (4), 6-4, 7-5, 10-8 at Wimbledon on Thursday to reach the third round of a Grand Slam tournament for the first time.

The 19-year-old wild-card entry from Australia -- the youngest player in the draw -- served out the match at love after a hard-fought contest that lasted nearly four hours.

Gasquet is the highest-ranked player Kyrgios has beaten. The Australian had lost all his previous matches against top 20 opponents.
