Nick Kyrgios not keen to go partying to celebrate Citi Open title

Nick Kyrgios was asked if he would celebrate the Citi Open title he won on Sunday by defeating Daniil Medvedev in a straight-set final. The Australian player said: "Probably not. It's pretty late. I'm probably just going to go to the hotel.

I'm not sure when my flight is tomorrow. Just going to enjoy it with my team and get ready for Montreal, I guess." Analyzing the tight final, he added: "Definitely knew today wasn't going to be easy. I mean, I went into that final, I think, massively I was the underdog for sure.

He's been one of the most consistent players I think for the last year and a half. He's been winning titles. Probably a contender at any event he plays. He's so solid. So today I knew that I had to serve well, control the tempo on my service games.

And I think his serve has improved out of sight since I last played him until Rome. He was in a great rhythm today. I couldn't really make any inroads on his service games apart from the tiebreaks. And I had one little sniff in the second set at Love-30, and then he fended it off pretty well.

So, I mean, honestly, I went into today and I didn't even -- I wasn't thinking about the result at all. I just wanted to go out there and just serve my way and see how the match kind of filled out, and I got it done in two tiebreaks.

But as I said, it could have been him sitting here. It was a couple of points here and there. He probably should have won the first set and then it could have been a different story. We're going to play each other a lot of times, so I think he knows that as well."
