Nick Kyrgios, Australia’s remaining representative at the Miami Open singles competition, will look to book a semifinal berth when he faces Canada’s Milos Raonic in the quarterfinal round of the tournament.

Kyrgios became the first Australian tennis player since Lleyton Hewitt in 2002 to reach the last eight of the Miami Open at Crandon Park Tennis Center. However, the ever-controversial Aussie was once again involved in an on-court outburst during his 7-6(2) 6-3 victory over Russia’s Andrey Kuznetsov in Round of 16.

Kyrgios received a Miami Open code violation from chair umpire Cedric Mourier after the 20-year-old Aussie hit a ball into the stands during the first set. Kyrgios then disputed the umpire’s call at the next change of ends, claiming that the official would have acted differently had it been another player like Rafael Nadal was involved in the incident.

“Anyone else, like Rafa did that, you would keep it cool,” Kyrgios said, reports The Guardian. “This game is biased as anything. You all know it as well. It’s biased as s---, this game. What else has it got to hide? It’s ruined. Absolutely ruined.”

Despite the controversy, Kyrgios was still able to finish strong, conceding only 10 points on serve to beat Kuznetsov. He next faces Raonic, who had an easy time dealing against Bosnian Damir Dzumhur with thru a 6-0 6-3 demolition.

Raonic leads Kyrgios by 2-1 in their FedEx ATP Head2Head matchup, but the latter has won their last outing at Wimbledon last year. The winner could have a semifinal clash against either Kei Nishikori or Gael Monfils, who battle it out in the other half of the bracket.
