Nick kyrgios returned to the circuit in recent months. He played Wimbledon, took a break and returned to Atlanta to begin the cement tour heading into the US Open. Before debuting in the ATP 500 in Washington, the Australian spoke at a press conference and, as always, left statements that are worth reviewing.
Asked if it felt good to return to the circuit, with the trips and being away from home, Kyrgios replied: “I’m not going to lie. I didn’t miss him. (…) But when I come here, I feel good energy. Every time I I play a tournament, I feel like it may be the last time I’m here. In Atlanta I felt the same. I don’t know, I don’t know where I am standing. I feel weird, I feel weird about my career right now. “
At just 26 years old, Kyrgios navigates uncertainty about his future: “I feel like I’m not playing for myself. When I was young, I had no goals of winning Grand Slam or anything like that. I didn’t love the sport. I became a good player. I think. I beat all the Top, I won some titles. I became an icon of doing things my way. Now I enjoy playing for fun. I like being around people, talking to them, knowing what they do. The moments that marked me in my career, my favorite moments are with the fans, giving them hope. “
Kyrgios will debut this Tuesday against McDonald and if he manages to advance in the box, he will face Benoit Paire in a duel where the show will be guaranteed.
