Nick Kyrgios: 'I deal with messages every day with...'

‘I deal with news every day with…’

Nick Kyrgios will be one of the stars of the 142nd US Open. The Australian tennis player has put on a great show over the past few months and has shown significant improvements, at least in terms of his concentration and handling of the important moments of the game.

The Canberra native put on an incredible tournament at Wimbledon where he reached the first Slam final of his career. What stopped him from adding a valuable major to his tally was Novak Djokovic. After a restrained first set, the Serbian champion prevailed again and won the next three sets in the moments decisive for the Americans.

At the end of the grass season, Kyrgios won his seventh career Washington title by defeating Yoshihito Nishioka in the final act of the American event. The Australian raised the bar again at the Montreal Masters 1000 by defeating world number one Daniil Medvedev in the second round.

The numerous matches he has played in both doubles and singles in recent weeks have undoubtedly influenced his development in Canada. Kyrgios won only one game in the deciding set, which he lost to Hubert Hurkacz in the quarterfinals.

In Cincinnati, the 1995 player also appeared to be struggling with physical problems and exited the tournament in the second round, losing to Taylor Fritz in straight sets. The current number 26 in the ATP ranking should use this week to recharge your batteries and compete at the US Open under the best possible conditions.

Especially with a view to the last slam of 2022, Kyrgios reacted openly to the survey launched by Eurosport about his social accounts. The Warner Bros. pan-European network specifically asked its fans: “Who will win the US Open?” Kyrgios published a story that took the post published by Eurosport and chose Spanish talent Carlos Alcaraz.

Nick Kyrgios credited Naomi Osaka for helping

Nick Kyrgios credited Naomi Osaka with helping him open up about his mental health issues. “I struggled with my mental health early on and there were times in my tennis career when I really struggled,” revealed Nick Kyrgios.

“I wasn’t sure if I was okay to feel that way.” The Australian highlighted how interacting with and creating a podcast with Naomi Osaka helped both of them overcome their demons. “But then I actually met Naomi,” Kyrgios continued.

“We did a podcast together, and she kind of opened up. I deal with messages every day with people reaching out and I try to reply to as many people as possible,” Kyrgios said. “I think men my age have a really hard time opening up. Can’t feel weak… [Naomi Osaka] helped me a lot.”
