'Serena Williams is so nice, I spent time with her' - Nick Kyrgios

Speaking on Tennis Channel Nick Kyrgios praised Serena Williams's legacy in tennis. The American keeps being one of the favorites to win tournaments despite she is turning 38 years old in September. "Just the longevity of doing it at the highest level is amazing.

I have struggled with injuries in my short career and she can comeback from all these injuries as a mum and still doing it at the highest levels is amazing, i think she is unbelievably humble as well off court, she is extremely nice and I spent a lot of time with her.

She is a great champion, she has done so much for the sport inspiring millions", said Kyrgios following his win over Bublik. On Serena, Lindsey Davenport said: "The last time we saw Serena on a court was Indian Wells against Muguruza, she did not look well in that match, different match today, Serena was good in the first and then third set.

A bit of a blip in the second set but she cameback early in the third set, she fought off a break point in that first game, then got more aggressive and ended up really running away with it." The former world No. 1 Jim Courier commented on the game of sun and shides on the Central Court in Miami: "This is a function of the way a football stadium is set, because if we take a bigger view of the site, you can see the field courts are laid north-south but look in the direction of the Hard Rock Stadium, this is a football stadium not tennis.

We are adjusting it, they are doing the very best they can and they will find some solution whether it's this year or next year."
