With the win, Khachanov, the 27th seed, advances to the semifinals of a slam for the first time. He will face No. 5 Casper Ruud on Friday for a berth in the championship match.


“I did it,” he said during his on-court interview. “I did it guys.”


“It was a crazy match. I was expecting it to be like this. We played almost four hours, that’s the only way to beat Nick, I think.”


Kyrgios, who cooled down after the match, gave credit to Khachanov for the victory.


“I’m obviously devastated,” Kyrgios said. “But all credit to Karen. He’s a fighter. He’s a warrior. I thought he served really good today. Honestly probably the best server I played this tournament, to be honest, the way he was hitting his spots under pressure.”
