Nick Kyrgios: 'I got to capitalize on this little window'

“I need to capitalize on this little window”

Jack of all trades Nick Kyrgios is finally aware of his own resources, talent and potential. After the Wimbledon final, the talented Aussie won in Washington three years later and just three years later adds another pearl to his string of singles success.

Kyrgio’s weekly haul also includes double hits with partner and friend Jack Sock, the culmination of a near-perfect week. “I’m proud of myself and my team. It’s been an incredible week: I’ve been able to win very tight games and the confidence I’ve gained at Wimbledon has allowed me to overcome the most delicate moments.

The feeling is that I am reaping the fruits that I have sown over the past few months. I’m training hard, I’ve spent the last seven or eight months wanting to give it my all. I’ve reinvented myself, I’m making history and I’m proud of it.

If Wimbledon had conceded points, I would have been around tenth place,” he explained extremely clearly at the press conference and also emphasized his new approach to tennis. Factors of rebirth included maturity and, most importantly, the new ability to give 100%. in education.

“I think that age has helped me to mature, to know better what I want, to know my body and my mind in detail. I’ve also learned to not mind criticism and to prove to myself that I really want to be a great tennis player.

I do things my way because I know my playstyle and personality can inspire millions of people around the world. The relationship with my girlfriend has also helped me a lot to be organized and have extra motivation on the track.

All training sessions were positive, I was professional and I managed to combine my free time with tennis,” he concluded.

Nick Kyrgios is in excellent form

Speaking to Tennis Channel after the win, Nick Kyrgios said he enjoys his tennis and wants to get back to where he belongs in the ATP rankings.

“Beating world no. 1 is rewarding, it’s just a reflection of all the hard work I put in in Sydney. You know, the positive attitude. to Washington, [I] could [have] just come here and be happy with what i did last week.

But I wanted to empty the tank these two weeks. My ranking isn’t where I wanted to be after not getting those points at Wimbledon. I have to use this little window,” explained Nick Kyrgios. The 27-year-old, who used serve-and-volley tactics to take advantage of the defending champions’ deep positioning behind the baseline on the return, said he chose his tactics well before the competition began.

“I came out today thinking I’d go pretty much every point there with a serve-and-volley tactic and serve up in volume. I didn’t want to give him any rhythm. Obviously he’s playing pretty well right now so I just wanted to try and break it,” said Kyrgios.
