Tennis bad boy Nick Kyrgios has been creating some positive headlines as he has reached the semi-finals of the Japan Open and he did so after pulling off one of the most amazing shots of the year.

In a battle against Luxembourg’s Gilles Muller, Aussie big-hitting Kyrgois did not like the idea that his rival had pulled off a shot that may take the limelight away from his own unorthodox style on court.

So after Muller offered up an audacious hot dog shot to get himself back into the point, Kyrgois responded with an even more unlikely through the legs volley before he finished off the point with a screaming backhand winner.

It seemed as if Kyrgois could have left Muller’s shot to go out over the baseline, but he couldn’t resist  a shot that served to highlight his desire to put on a show for the crowd.

Kyrgois went on to win the match 6-4, 6-2, with this rally certain to be on the tennis highlights packages for some time to come:
