Rafael Nadal speaks highly of Nick Kyrgios and Thanasi Kokkinakis

There is no doubt that Nick Kyrgios has the potential to be one of the sports finest players as the Australian is not short of talent. The acknowledgement of those talents was received in a recent interview by Rafael Nadal who spoke very highly of Kyrgios, revealing the belief that he can achieve great things.

The 14-time Grand Slam winner also spoke very highly of another Australian, Thanasi Kokkinakis. “Nick Kyrgios is already at the top, a player who has an unbelievable potential,” Nadal said. “He has [to] focus on himself, and can become world No.1 and win a Grand Slam.

He suffered and injury and we don’t know how he will comeback, but he has the potential to be at the top.” Nadal and Kyrgios have faced each other twice in their career and the record is evenly split between the two.

The last meeting was at Roland Garros when Kyrgios pushed the Spaniard to get a win on his favorite surface. Also Read: In Germany a 19-year-old hits his opponent, now they will have to appear in court
