Damir Dzumhur: 'Kyrgios didn't defeat Djokovic two times in a row for no reason...a big career is in front of him'

Bosnian tennis player Damir Dzumhur had some big words to say about rising Nick Kyrgios. Dzumhur had a first-hand look at Kyrgios' on-court abilities as the two met just recently at the Miami Masters. The 21-year-old defeated the Bosnian in straight-sets in their first ever meeting 6-4 6-3.

Kyrgios went on to win a couple of more matches in Miami -- reach the semi-finals -- where he fell just short to eventual Miami champion Roger Federer. Except for the already mentioned Miami Open, Kyrgios was also a semi-finalist in Acapulco earlier in March and a quarter-finalist of the Indian Wells Masters.

The Australian collected two straight-set wins over world No. 2 Novak Djokovic in his last month's notable campaign -- in Acapulco and Indian Wells. ''He didn't defeat (Novak) Djokovic two times in a row for no reason...he is not ranked inside the top-15 for no reason -- a big career is front of him,'' Dzumhur said of Kyrgios. ''(He is) one of the players that could maybe take the throne in a couple of years.'' Source: source.ba | video portal Also read: Boris Becker encourages Nick Kyrgios to keep working hard
