Jim Courier: 'Nick Kyrgios can and should end 2017 in the top five'

Jim Courier was impressed by Nick Kyrgios´ performances this weekend in Davis Cup. The Canberra native beat John Isner and Jack Sock both in straight sets. ´It’s all in his hands´, Courier said. ´You see when he’s engaged and focused and concentrating and resilient – down a break in three different sets and found a way to win – that’s a player who can and should be top five in the world by the end of the year, if he carries that through and if he’s lucky with good health.

When you see players that have so much skill and charisma start to put it together, it’s exciting for everyone involved in tennis.´ Courier added: ´Maybe not the guys in the locker room who have to play against him, but for everyone else involved in the sport, it’s a great thing if Nick can find his potential.

He’s getting close to it.´ This year After Australian Open Kyrgios reached Acapulco semifinals beating Novak Djokovic, Indian Wells quarter-finals beating again Djokovic, and Miami semifinals where he lost to Roger Federer after an amazing three hours match.
