Nick Kyrgios: 'They may not sleep that well at night'

“You may not sleep so well at night”

The debut of the top seeds in Montreal held a few surprises. One of these was the departure of world number one Daniil Medvedev, beaten by an increasingly inspired and transformed Nick Kyrgios from previous years.

The Russian immediately retired from the Canadian Masters 1000 without defending his title from last year. The Muscovite explained at the end of the game: “I missed important shots in the highlights of the game.

I don’t think he played badly or made too many mistakes, but you pay dearly against a player like him. It’s never easy starting a tournament, I usually feel a little rusty and need to shoot to get used to the conditions, but there’s no room for that when you’re up against Nick, who I think is going to be the top will be 10 very soon.

If I had had my chances, everything could definitely have changed in a few points. I’ll have to play better next time,” he commented. He then continued: “Losing is never nice, it takes away your confidence. I think I will take a few days to get to know the city and its surroundings, on Friday I will go to Cincinnati to have days to study the surface well.

I hope to play well there because I want to arrive with a chance to win the Us Open. I know there will be a lot of competition with Alcaraz, Nadal, Tsitsipas and we’ll see if Zverev comes back. I think I would have had more chances to win this match if it had been played earlier,” said Medvedev, who will remain at the top of the ATP rankings.

New details on Kyrgios

At his post-match press conference, the Australian said he now plays with confidence and is always keen to get on the pitch and compete. “[The change in schedule and court] maybe gave me a little more time to prepare and think about what I kinda didn’t like.

I almost wanted to get on the pitch quicker and just get it done. Whether I won or lost, I just wanted to leave the pitch to be honest,” said Nick Kyrgios. “I find [I have some edge on my opponents]you’re looking at someone like Serena [Williams] or Roger [Federer]before opponents enter the field, they may not sleep so well at night.

It’s more the aura or their results or their accolades that you’re trying to compare than they are,” he said. “Now when people come up against me, ‘he’s got a huge win streak, he has to play well, did this, did that.’ This can cloud your ability to just go out and perform.

I think some of the opponents I’ve faced may have felt that a bit over the past few weeks,” he added.
