Nick Kyrgios doesn't believe that the ATP calendar is fair. In the same week as an ATP 500 like Washington that had a star-stunned field, the ATP 250 of Kitzbuhel took place, featuring Dominic Thiem as the only big star.
The Australian wrote: "It’s like having 500’s on grass and hard court the weeks of the clay. Carreno Busta was top 10 and got his first-ever win on grass this year, it’s a joke." On his knee issue, Kyrgios said: "Stepping and serving I feel it the most.
But I'm doing everything I can. I'm icing it, and the physios are helping me keep it under control." Kyrgios is loving his time in Washington: "The crowd is amazing. They hung around two days in a row now when I've played, or three days in a row when I've played the last match on each court.
They're amazing. The atmosphere has been awesome, and obviously, you see a lot of the people screaming out and they're just having a good time. So yeah, the atmosphere has been good." On his choice to play with Stefanos Tsitsipas in Cincinnati too, he added: "I think we both maybe want to get to know each other a little bit better.
But I'm excited. I honestly wanted to play with him in Montreal but he'd already committed to someone else, so that's fine. But I would like to play with him as often as possible. He's one of the best players in the world at the moment."
Asked if he will play doubles in Montreal, Kyrgios replied: "Depending on how my body pulls up the next couple days, as well. I'm not going to be in any rush to find a partner. But yeah, I would obviously like to play.
It's a lot of fun. I think it's important, singles are so stressful at times, to have that kind of fun on the doubles court with someone you're pretty close to. It's cool."
