'I'd marry her': 'Hot chick' distracts Nick Kyrgios mid-match

Nick Kyrgios is no stranger to bizarre outbursts, but the Aussie may have outdone himself at the Laver Cup as Team World set up a thrilling final day.

Kyrgios has often been criticised for lacking the necessary concentration to become a true superstar in tennis.

More often than not it's an umpire or a ball kid or even himself that distracts the 24-year-old from simply concentrating on his own game while he's competing.

However, at the Laver Cup in Switzerland it was a woman in the crowd that appeared to ruffle the Aussie's feathers.

Footage captured Kyrgios making the hilarious admission after he came to the side of the court for a quick break during the second set of his singles match against Team Europe’s Roger Federer.

The Aussie could be heard revealing that a "hot chick" in the crowd had thrown him off his game.

Kyrgios apologised to his coach and teammates before declaring that he could "marry her right now”.

Kyrgios regains focus with Sock in doubles

Kyrgios bounced back from a tough defeat to Federer to keep Team World in the mix for a breakthrough Laver Cup victory in a doubles success alongside Jack Sock.

Europe, who have won the prior two editions of the competition, lead 7-5 heading into the final day, but they might have had one hand on the trophy already if not for Kyrgios.

A home side able to name a line-up where each of their six players are ranked higher than John Isner, their opponents' top star, celebrated singles triumphs for Federer and Rafael Nadal but found Kyrgios in determined mood late on Saturday evening.

Team World had struck first to level the contest at 3-3, with wins on the second day worth two points - double their first-day value, while third-day victories earn three.

Isner saw opponent Alexander Zverev fall apart and clinched a 6-7 (2-7) 6-4 10-1 success.

Pegged back, matters looked to be going from bad to worse for Europe when the dangerous Kyrgios took the first set against Federer.

But the Swiss veteran recovered to triumph 6-7 (5-7) 7-5 10-7 and it appeared to be plain sailing from there, with Nadal winning the final singles contest of the day, easing past Milos Raonic 6-3 7-6 (7-1) to regain complete control of the competition.

"Being here for me is a very positive energy," Nadal said. "I like being around such a great team and the crowd is amazing.

"I feel very lucky [to win] the first set. I started to play better later in the match and I think I played a very good tie-break in the end."

The Spaniard was back on court to close out Saturday's play, teaming up with Stefanos Tsitsipas, to take on Kyrgios and Sock.

However, Kyrgios gave an early indication of what was to come as he started in impressive fashion again with some blistering winners in an opener Team World dominated, breaking swiftly and protecting the serve with ease.

The Australian was guilty of gifting away the decisive first break in the second set, making a mess of a seemingly straightforward volley, before coming into his own again with the match level.

Nadal was too often left to plough a lone furrow by Tsitsipas and Kyrgios excelled at the net, greeting each European error in typically extravagant fashion.

Fittingly, after a one-sided tie-break, the match was clinched on Kyrgios' serve 6-4 3-6 10-6 to set up an intriguing final day.
