Nick Kyrgios: ´I´m different player. Djokovic is the most difficult player to beat´

It has been a positive tournament so far for Nick Kyrgios in Marseille. The Australian beat Vasek Pospisil and Teymuraz Gabashvili, both in straight sets with the score of 6-4 6-4. Kyrgios also assured that he felt "good" after having withdrawn from Rotterdam with an elbow injury.

He spoke about the Australian season as well. Kyrgios reached the third round at the Australian Open losing to Tomas Berdych, in a match where he ranted against the umpire and was booed by the public.†"It is always tough playing in Australia, but at the same time I always love playing there.

The crowd is great, you know, I had a great experience playing there again. Obviously, I did not go as far as I would have liked to like in the previous year but thatís how it goes. I thought I gave everything I had and obviously Berdych was too good ó but looking back at it, it was obviously one of my funnest [sic] experiences so far at a Grand Slam" - he said to The Tennis Island. When asked how it felt to be under an extra microscope in Australia, he said:†"I do not really care too much, but obviously Iím under the microscope a lot because, you know, I just say what I think and, yeah, I am definitely different compared to the normal tennis player.

So thatís just the way it is." Staying healthy is the goal for Kyrgios:†"I do not wanna play too many events this year. My goalís probably trying to stay home and obviously enjoy time with my family; to stay home as much as possible and trying to stay healthy.

When I am playing events, [to] give it all Iíve got." He aldo had a fast Q&A session on Twitter with his fans. Here are the most interesting replies. His racquet weight: 325 g. When asked if he had ever been in Mallorca, he said: "Nope would love to go.

Maybe Rafael Nadal or Carlos Moya will invite me sometime for training??"†To which, Moya replied: "Anytime boss." Who is the most difficult player to beat: "I have not played him yet but surely has to be Nole." How can you get mentally strong? "Work hard and know you have worked harder than the guy down the other end." His favourite tournaments: "Love Wimbledon, US Open and Aussie all for different reasons."
