Kyrgios, the 18-year-old from Melbourne, was facing a second set break point against Benoit Paire after taking the first set off the Frenchman and as he came to net it was a solid passing shot from Paire that looked like it would drop for the break and the set.
Kyrgios stuck his racquet out, picked the ball perfectly and the crowd erupted in Margaret Court Arena.
The good news for Kyrgios is that save ended up winning him the second set in a tiebreaker, but the bad news is that the Aussie eventually lost in five sets to Paire.
No matter, this ball from Kyrgios is up for shot of the tournament so far in Melbourne.
