«Nick Kyrgios isn’t afraid to take on the big boys,» says former star

Former British No. 1 Greg Rusedski noted that Nick Kyrgios has more to show than he did during his second-round match in Cincinnati against Taylor Fritz. On Wednesday, Kyrgios left Cincinnati after losing 6-3, 6-2 to Fritz. Kyrgios has played a lot of tennis this summer and Rusedski suggests that he is concerned that the Aussie is mentally and physically fatigued.

«Yes, it was activated,» Rusedski said on Amazon Prime, according to Tennis365. «You can hear the boos around the stadium. They don’t feel like he’s at his best and we hope the knee isn’t too bad, but he has more to show.»

He has improved but physically he has to get stronger. He is worried about the knee physically. It’s much easier to do it on the grass courts than on the hard ones.» After winning in Washington and his first three matches in Montreal, Kyrgios was defeated by Hubert Hurkacz in the Montreal quarterfinals.

After the nine-fight win streak came to an end, Kyrgios said he wasn’t worried at all about the end of his winning streak. Kyrgios’ mother has health problems and the Wimbledon finalist plans to return to Australia after the US Open and spend time with his family.

After leaving Montreal, Kyrgios admitted that being away from his ailing mother is taking a toll on him. «I have been away for almost three months and I have been away from home, away from my mother who is in hospital, away from my father.»

Marion Bartoli on Nick Kyrgios

Former French professional tennis player Marion Bartoli considers Nick Kyrgios to be an extremely flamboyant player. «That Kyrgios is a kicker, a player who feels the thrill of the big games, a player who is not afraid to take on the big guys, that’s obvious,» he said, adding: «For me, he will always be an extremely extravagant. player, who will have the ability in one match to get all of them except [Rafael] Nadal on clay and a few [other] exceptions

But becoming a cador on tour by showing up every week is not Nick Kyrgios’ trademark. To become a cador of the circuit, you have to endure the whole year. Already on clay, he doesn’t even want to hear about it because for him it is not a tennis surface. So you already take three months off the season, including a Grand Slam tournament,” he stated.
