London: Wimbledon teenage sensation Nick Kyrgios said getting angry at his mum thinking he couldn't beat the world number one inspired his shock victory over Rafael Nadal.
The 19-year-old, ranked 144 in the world, said he got all fired up by his Malaysian mother Norlaila thinking he had no chance against the two-time Wimbledon champion.
"I was reading a comment that she thought Rafa was too good for me. It actually made me a bit angry. You would think he's in a whole other level compared to me. I just believed in myself that I could create some opportunities," the Australian said.
