It is being his best season, but he wants more. Nick Kyrgios won the trophy ATP 500 de Washington after overcoming Yoshihito Nishioka with a score of 6-4 and 6-3 in 1 hour and 21 minutes of final. It was no easy task to return to the tour after his incredible performance at Wimbledon. The Australian won the title without losing a single service throughout the week, something that demonstrates the seriousness and concentration with which the world number 63 has played, which will improve his ranking in the next update of the ATP ranking. It was precisely in Washington, in 2019, where Nick raised his last trophy.
Kyrgios started the match strongly, causing his rival to make a mistake in a first game where the points seemed to have no end. The Australian then confirmed his break showing great confidence on the track, although Nishioka didn’t drop his arms as quickly. The opportunity came for the Japanese, but Nick took a step forward to close the door on his opponent. With the calm that does not usually characterize Canberra, Kyrgios won the first set of the final in Washington.
the same story repeats itself
Yoshihito gave way again in the first minutes of the second set for his rival to take the lead again. Little by little, Kyrgios turned on and it didn’t take long for him to face the chair umpire. This discussion did not detract from his task Nishioka, who was closely following Nick in the light. Even so, Kyrgios wanted to accelerate to get the victory to the rest.
Kyrgios won’t have much time to celebrate his win. In addition to having to play in the final in the doubles category, Nick plans to play in the Canadian Masters 1000 in which he debuts against Sebastián Báez. If he achieves that first victory in Montreal, he will cross paths with Daniil Medvedev, current world number one.
