Nick Kyrgios beat Ryan Harrison 6-4 6-2 to win the Brisbane International title. His maiden tour title on home soil.

Carrying a niggling knee injury, Kyrgios made a slow start and was forced to save five break points before he managed to carve out own his first break in the seventh game.

The 22-year-old claimed the first set before taking control of the match after his American opponent dropped serve at the start of the second set with a double fault.

Raonic upset by De Minaur in 2nd round at Brisbane

Milos Raonic lost in straight sets to 18-year-old Alex De Minaur in a second-round upset Wednesday at the Brisbane International.

Raonic, who won the Brisbane title in 2016 and reached the Wimbledon final that year, struggled to find rhythm with his usually booming serve in a 6-4, 6-4 loss to the Australian wild-card entry.

De Minaur pressured Raonic with his relentless service returns, made just one unforced error and only dropped serve once - when serving for the match at 5-2 - en route to the biggest win of his career.

The victory put De Minaur into a quarterfinal match against American qualifier Michael Mmoh, who upset No. 8-seeded Mischa Zverev 6-2, 5-7, 6-4.

Kyle Edmund was taken the distance before he outlasted Denis Shapovalov in the opening round of the Brisbane International.

Edmund, who prevailed 6-7(5) 7-6(4) 6-4, struggled with his serve right from the start of the match but managed to save five out of six break points to overcome his opponent in two hours and 30 minutes.

"Everyone wants to start well but the year is so long that if there's positivity you feel good but even if you don't start well it doesn't mean the year is going to be a bad one," the Briton said.
