Nick Kyrgios It is being one of the sensations in the last weeks of the men’s circuit. As he had been doing in recent seasons, he let practically the entire clay court tour go by (he only played the clay tournament in Houston, although those conditions are nothing like those of a clay court tournament). clay conventional). A few weeks ago the grass tour started and the Canberra rider has shown, once again, that he feels like a fish in water on the green slopes. His role in Wimbledon promise.
a new nickel
Kyrgios is showing a better version in this year 2022. The Australian explained a few months ago that he used to live immersed in negativity. “Every day was a constant negativity from journalists, family, friends of all, I did not find positive things anywhere. I really hated my life and everything that revolves around it.” Nick says he is much happier now. And the changes have been noticeable. Now he claims to train much harder and more constantly. One of the key aspects of this transformation has been the improvement of his personal environment, highlighting the figure of his partner. “I have a fantastic girlfriend“.
His preparation for Wimbledon
The one from Canberra has been one of the tennis players who is leaving the best sensations on the short grass tour. Kyrgios has been competing in Germany. First in Stuttgart and then in Halle. In both tournaments he was one step away from the final. In Stuttgart, Nick left players like Lehecka, Basilashvili or Fucsovics on the way. In the semifinals, he faced the veteran Andy Murray, with whom he was defeated in straight sets and was clearly outplayed. Kyrgios complained of receiving racist insults that day. Days later, he traveled 500 kilometers to make his Halle debut against Altmaier. Nick beat the German in the first round to then face a major rival for the first time on this tour, Stefanos Tsitsipas. The Australian showed a very solid version and got rid of the Greek in three sets. In the quarterfinals, again, a rival with a name like the Spaniard Pablo Carreño, whom he also beat. His dismissal from the tournament was going to be in the semifinals, against the champion Hubert Hurkacz. With the more than positive results in Germany, Kyrgios has dropped 33 positions in the ranking, from 78 to 45. He is currently competing in the ATP Mallorca. Today he has passed the first round against a rival who has never been comfortable on grass, Laslo Djere.
Expectations for Wimbledon
Nick Kyrgios is considered one of the best tennis players on grass. Even he himself has not hesitated to affirm it a few weeks ago. “I consider myself top-5 or top-10 in the world on grass“. The Australian will not be seeded, that is, he could be a first-round rival for the players who lead the ranking. His chances of reaching the distant rounds will be greater if he avoids the toughest rivals, although it is also true that Kyrgios will to be more dangerous in the first round than in a hypothetical match in the second week.This is so since Nick will arrive very shot to the appointment and, in addition, the five-set matches are usually long for him.Mention the incredible statistics of the Canberra against the top 10, over which he has 23 wins. As for his results at Wimbledon, we could say that they are not as good as one might expect from a player with such a high level on the green surface. He has only reached the quarterfinals once and it was 8 years ago, and since 2017, it has not passed the third round.
