Another Grand Slam fairytale is over for Nick Kyrgios after the experience and guile of Spain's Tommy Robredo overcame the Aussie teenager in four sets.

Colourful Kyrgios was the toast of Flushing Meadows in the lead-up to the match and delivered on all all expectations in the opening set of the third round clash on Arthur Ashe Stadium. 

He dominated the first set, at one stage leading 5-0, to win 6-3 using every weapon in his arsenal. 

But Kyrgios then flopped with a 2-0 lead in the second set and two break points to drop serve twice and lose the set as 32-year-old Robredo steadied the ship. 

The Spainiard continued to grind it out and frustrate Kyrgios to claim the third set in a tie-break and the decisive set 6-3. 

The loss leaves Casey Dellacqua as the sole Australian left in the singles draw going into the second week.

Seeded for the first time in her career at a grand slam, Dellacqua will play Italy's world No 12 Flavia Pennetta on Monday for a place in her first slam quarter-final.
