ACAPULCO, Mexico — Nick Kyrgios advanced to the Mexico Open semifinals Thursday night, following his comeback victory over top-seeded Rafael Nadal with a 7-5, 6-7 (3), 6-4 decision over Stan Wawrinka.

On Wednesday night, Kyrgios overcame three match points to beat the second-ranked Nadal 3-6, 7-6 (2), 7-6 (6) in the hardcourt event at The Hotel Princess Mundo Imperial.

The 23-year-old Australian will face the winner of the late match between third-seeded John Isner of the United States and No. 8 John Millman of Australia. Kyrgios has four career titles, all on hardcourts.

The 33-year-old Wawrinka, from Switzerland, is a three-time Grand Slam winner.

In women's play, third-seeded Donna Vekic of Croatia beat eighth-seeded Johanna Kotna of Britain 6-3, 7-5 to set up a match against China's Wang Yafan. Wang beat Brazilian qualifier Beatriz Haddad Maia 6-3, 6-4, a day after Haddad Maia upset top-seeded Sloane Stephens.
