New Zealand tennis player Michael Venus is hoping to bring an end to the "Nick Kyrgios show" at the Australian Open tonight.

Venus and German doubles partner Tim Puetz are currently in action against Kyrgios and countryman Thanasi Kokkinakis in the quarterfinals of the men's doubles.

The Aussie duo - with Kyrgios front and centre - have been one of the stories of the tournament, and have already knocked out the top seeds.
