Nick Kyrgios opens on how he goes about his career now

Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios says nowadays he just goes out on the court and has fun. Kyrgios found himself in a dark spot a few years ago and he didn't play much tennis in 2020 and 2021. Kyrgios is now in a much better space and he has had a positive start to the 2022 season.

Kyrgios enjoyed a memorable Australian Open as he lifted his maiden Grand Slam title alongside his close friend Thanasi Kokkinakis. On Saturday, wildcard Kyrgios destroyed Federico Delbonis 6-2 6-2 to progress into the Indian Wells third round.

"I'm Nick Kyrgios and I just go out there and have fun. If I win, I win, and if I lose, I lose and life's good," Kyrgios said.

Kyrgios feels great

After beating Sebastian Baez in the Indian Wells first round, Kyrgios opened on his well-being.

“I’m just comfortable in my own skin,” Kyrgios said after beating Baez. “Mentally I feel the best I’ve probably ever felt, to be honest”. Kyrgios is playing injury-free and it's showing on the court.

"Physically I do not feel hindered anymore [with] my movement,” Kyrgios noted. “Tonight, I was running for drop shots, [moving] side to side, I could slide again with no pain, on my serve I can land with no pain.

I was able to play before [with the injury] but there was something in my mind that I was feeling. It was definitely weighing my game down. “Physically I feel good, I haven’t felt my left knee feel that good in a while."

Kyrgios, 26, is making his fifth appearance in Indian Wells. Kyrgios will have a tough task in the third round as he plays next Casper Ruud. Kyrgios has had some big wins in Indian Wells as in 2017 he stunned world No. 2 Novak Djokovic at the tournament. It remains to be seen how far can 2017 Indian Wells quarterfinalist Kyrgios go at the tournament this year.
