Nick Kyrgios really surprised everyone at the last press conference in the US Open, just after the sensational victory against world number one Daniil Medvedev. The Australian, as reported by Eurosport in a video, remarked: «I think my recent results have taken some of the pressure off, knowing we’ve had a couple of win-filled months.
We all want to go home to our families and friends, but at the same time we have a job to do as it is the last big tournament of the season. We have a duty to try to force each other and think positively and realize that next week we will be home anyway.»
Then the shocking revelation: «There are potentially three more matches and then I won’t have to play tennis anymore.» A phrase that leaves several questions about his future and probably two possible interpretations: it will be the 27-year-old’s last games of the 2022 season or of his career.
