Kyrgios upsets Murray and a spectator at Hopman Cup

Nick Kyrgios beat Andy Murray for the first time in his career at the Hopman Cup while Germany saw off France earlier in the day. 

Kyrgios and Murray had met four times before their Hopman Cup clash and it was the Scot who had been victorious on all four occasions. However, on Wednesday it was a different story altogether as the Australian triumphed in straight sets.

Kyrgios used his big serve to devastating effect as he recorded a 6-4, 7-6 victory whilst Murray looked flat and entirely out of sorts. 

The match never went without incident as Kyrgios involved himself in a row with a spectator after losing a point. The controversial character's career has been littered with many such moments.  

Earlier in the day it was Germany who proved too strong for France. Caroline Garcia beat Sabine Lisicki 6-2, 7-6 to get France off to the perfect start.

However, Alexander Zverev starred as Germany bounced back to win the next two rubbers. Zverev first beat Kenny De Schepper in his singles match and then paired up with Lisicki to win the mixed doubles rubber.
