Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios says he is focused on what he can control as he awaits positive news after his case is heard at a magistrates court in Canberra. On Tuesday, Kyrgios is scheduled for a court hearing for alleged common assault.
Kyrgios, 27, was accused of allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Chiara Passari. Kyrgios, who is competing this week at the ATP 500 in Tokyo, will not attend the court hearing, as he will be represented by his lawyers. "I can't control much and I'm taking all the measures and dealing with it off the court.
I can only do what I can and I'm here in Tokyo trying to play good tennis, continue that momentum and try to do my job. , which is playing tennis and playing it well. That's it," Kyrgios said. After being runner-up in the Wimbledon final to Novak Djokovic, Kyrgios hoped to go all the way at the US Open.
In New York, Kyrgios was playing very well and even knocked out top seed Daniil Medvedev in the round of 16. After beating Medvedev, Kyrgios was the top favorite to win the US Open. He then suffered a heartbreaking and devastating five-set loss to Karen Khachanov in the quarterfinals.
Kyrgios did not win his first Grand Slam title this year, but he showed that he can make a deep Grand Slam run. "I thought the US Open was a great opportunity. Obviously that hurt me a lot, because I definitely thought I was the favorite after beating (Daniil) Medvedev.
Now I just have to wait until the Australian Open, but I want to keep my form, the way I'm playing, I want to continue like this. I'm doing all the right things, so I think I can win a Grand Slam for sure," Kyrgios said.
Kyrgios is in great shape
Nick Kyrgios is known to attract attention, both on and off the court.
"I came out a bit slow, but I don't play many matches so it's hard to just get straight back into that competitive flow. But as soon as I held the first game I kind of found my form again and played really well," said Kyrgios.
"The court is obviously playing faster compared to normal hard court events. I'm not complaining about that, to be honest," Kyrgios continued. "I think big servers and guys who like to take the ball early and have flat backhands, I think it suits our game style.
It's fun tennis to watch, people playing aggressive and coming to the net and serving big. I think that's the type of tennis that fans like to see sometimes. The court's probably faster than average, but I like it."
