Nick Kyrgios has made it perfectly clear that he has no intention of retiring in the near future as the Australian tennis star believes he could have at least one or two more "really good years." Kyrgios, who will be turning 29 in April, had a career-best season in 2022 before a nightmare 2023 in terms of injuries.

After undergoing knee surgery in January, Kyrgios started his 2023 season in Stuttgart in June - where he picked up a wrist injury. Due to knee and wrist injuries, Kyrgios ended up playing just one tournament and one match this year.

Kyrgios hasn't yet returned to being fully healthy but he is working on coming back in 2024.

Kyrgios: Not going anywhere

“At the moment I am dealing with some health issues so just trying to get back healthy I definitely don’t see myself going anywhere in the near future but you know I want to get back on the tour and have one to 2 more really,really good years and I think that’s possible and then after if there is some more leagues you know that are offering some nice money then I’ll definitely look on extending my career but you know there is a lot of work in the tennis world that needs to be done," Kyrgios said on Piers Morgan Uncensored on TalkTV.

Kyrgios' wrist condition has gotten better but there are still no guarantees that the 2022 Wimbledon finalist will be able to start his 2024 season in time. Just a couple of days ago, Brisbane International tournament director Cam Pearson revealed that he has been in contact with Kyrgios and that he told the Australian tennis star that there would be a wildcard waiting for him if he decided to play in Brisbane. It remains to be seen when and where will Kyrgios' comeback officially start.
