Australian Nick Kyrgios came through with a five-set first-round Wimbledon cliff-hanger against British wildcard Paul Jubb on Tuesday as his fearsome serve ultimately devastated the 22-year-old 3-6 6-1 7-5 6-7(3) 7-5.

Judd showed admirable cool as Kyrgios went through his usual complaints to the umpire and fans and stood toe to toe in an even match, producing an excellent tiebreak to take it into a fifth set.

Kyrgios’s serve, however, held up well in the decider and, despite a few wobbles, he had just enough to come through.
