The contest went the distance in each set, with the decider going to the 20-year-old in dramatic circumstances.
Kyrgios, who stunned Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon last year, denied the Swiss star a shot at a fifth title in the claycourt Masters event.
The youngster broke Federer’s serve in the opening game of the contest, but the 17-time Grand Slam winner used all his experience to level the set up at 5-5 and take it to a tiebreak.
Federer was dominant in the tiebreak, taking it out 7-2.
The second set proved to be just as tight as the first, however it was Kyrgios who levelled the game up despite throwing away a number of set points.
Both players were able to hold serve in a nerve-racking final set, and again it came down to a tiebreak.
Kyrgios and Federer failed to capitalise on match points in the decider, but eventually it was the Australian who came through with the goods with a 14-12 tiebreak win.
