Nick Kyrgios reveals one of Novak Djokovic's greatest strenghts after WImbledon final

Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios admitted he felt anxious before going out on the Centre Court for his WImbledon final versus Novak Djokovic. Kyrgios, 27, reached his maiden Grand Slam final at Wimbledon after Rafael Nadal gave him a walkover in their semifinal match.

Kyrgios hardly could have been handed a more difficult test in his first Grand Slam final as playing Djokovic at Wimbledon is considered as one of the most difficult things in the game. Kyrgios competed extremely well against Djokovic but the Serb used all of his experience to seal a 4-6 6-3 6-4 7-6 (3) victory.

"I'm very disappointed. I had a bit of anxiety before the match," Kyrgios admitted, per Sportskeeda. "I didn't know how it would play out, but he kept me cool at the start of the match. I played a great first set and felt like I was in complete control of the match."

Kyrgios on Djokovic's greatest strengths

Djokovic found himself down by a set but he didn't panic and calmly worked his way back into the match.

Kyrgios said Djokovic didn't do anything amazing but simply stayed calm and created a comeback that he usually creates when he is down by a set. "It's weird. I felt like Djokovic didn't do anything amazing today. He just came back like he always does," Kyrgios.

"In the big moments of the match, it felt like he was never nervous. It's one of his great strengths. He never looks nervous. He's focused until the last point of the game. I have to congratulate him on the great game he played." After beating Kyrgios, Djokovic did his best to encourage the Australian to keep his head high. Djokovic told Kyrgios that his Wimbledon run was great and added he will certainly make more strong Grand Slam runs.
