New York - Fiery Australian Nick Kyrgios's US Open campaign ended in pain and tears when he retired from his third round match against Ukraine's Illya Marchenko with a hip injury on Saturday.

The 14th seed needed a medical timeout after dropping the second set and despite a series of further checks with the trainer, he quit after the third set feeling unable to move around the court.

Marchenko's 4-6, 6-4, 6-1 win gave the world number 68 a fourth round clash against two-time Grand Slam winner and third seed Stan Wawrinka.

The Swiss had earlier saved a match point to defeat Britain's Dan Evans 4-6, 6-3, 6-7 (6/8), 7-6 (10/8), 6-2.
