Australian teenager Nick Kyrgios has claimed that he is "overwhelmed with happiness" to be facing Rafael Nadal in the fourth round of Wimbledon.

The 19-year-old, ranked 144th in the world, beat Jiri Vesely in four sets on Saturday to progress at the All England Lawn Tennis Club.

"I'm overwhelmed with happiness," he told the tournament's official website. "Making my [fourth-round debut] at a Grand Slam and the opportunity to play Rafa hopefully on Centre Court, but it's an opportunity I'm just going to embrace."

Nadal booked his place in the fourth round with a four-set triumph over Mikhail Kukushkin.
