Nick Kyrgios seemed to say he may not have a long career. The Australian player was asked how it felt like to share a private jet with Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsitsipas on the way from Washington to Montreal. "It was fine.
I don't know. It's all right. I think that little run-in they had, was it last year, I think that's well behind them. It's probably good they don't think about that anymore, because they're going to see each other a lot more times, going to see each other probably for the next 15 years.
They only get to see me for the next three or four years, but, I mean, they're gonna see each other a long time. I think they should get over it. I think they're fine," said Kyrgios. Asked if he gave a gift to Tsitsipas for his birthday, he replied: "I actually didn't get him a present.
I didn't know until I saw it on Twitter this morning, but I don't know. I might get him something small tomorrow, maybe a shoelace or something." The last portion of that statement was a joke given how Tsitstipas' shoes were giving him trouble during his matches at the Citi Open in Washington.
Kyrgios loves spending time with kids: "I have been doing kids clinics for Tennis Australia when I was young. I was just brought up like that, to be honest. I don't care if you're the CEO of a company or a janitor.
I'm going to speak to you the same way. I love doing -- I think that's what it's about. It's about giving kids believe that they can be in this position one day."
