Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios insists the team atmosphere inside the Australian ATP Cup team team couldn't be better. Kyrgios, ranked at No. 29, led his side against Great Britain in the ATP Cup quarterfinal as the home side is now two wins away from winning it all in Sydney.
Kyrgios saw off Cameron Norrie 6-2 6-2 in the opening rubber of the tie, before he and Alex de Minaur edged out Jamie Murray and Joe Salisbury 3-6 6-3 18-16 in the deciding rubber. "We've got each others' backs.
Rusty (Lleyton Hewitt) is the best captain, the teammates have been supporting each other and that's paid off. My serve came through in big moments today," Kyrgios said after beating Norrie, per the ATP Cup. The head-to-head record between Kyrgios and Norrie now stands at 1-1 as the Briton won their first at the Atlanta Open in 2018 via a retirement.
"He (Norrie) is a very capable player, and I knew that," Kyrgios claimed after the match, as revealed by Tennis Australia on Twitter.
