He is ready to go back on the court. Nick Kyrgios, who has not competed for almost a year, said he was prepared for his return to the official circuit and wanted to be in good shape before his people, in Australia.
At the age of 25, the now No. 47 in the world, ex-13, told Tennis.com, in his country, that he wants to play right now. Its latest version was given at the 2020 Acapulco ATP, 11 months ago.
“I’ve been working hard for weeks and I’m ready to compete. I gave my body a break and this time at home with the family made me see things from another perspective, both tennis and life in general,” said Kyrgios, owner of six singles title, who has not participated since last year the circuit was stopped by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I face this tour with a great mood,” remarked the extroverted and controversial player, who a year ago achieved his last official victory, in the third round of the Australian Open, against Russian Karen Khachanov. Later, he was eliminated in the round of 16 at the hands of Spanish Rafael Nadal.
“I feel that our country managed the health crisis very well and I have full confidence that Tennis Australia takes the necessary measures. I never wanted sport to come before health, it should not be like that, no matter how many things are at stake,” he added .
