Nick Kyrgios gives his thoughts on Tokyo Olympics

Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios is undecided about playing the Tokyo Olympics. Kyrgios, a former world No. 13, has never appeared at the Olympics. In 2016, the Australian didn't represent his country at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics.

"If I'm to play the Olympics I wanna do it the right way. I wanna do it with full crowds, with my guests there. I want to do it when I'm able to watch other athletes do their thing. That's the Olympics for me. The Olympics, the way it's going to go on, is not the Olympics," Kyrgios said, per Reem Abulleil.

On Saturday, Kyrgios won the opening set against Felix Auger-Aliassime 6-2 before he lost the second set by a 6-1 score. After losing the second set, Kyrgios retired the match due to an abdominal injury.

"I haven’t played this level of tennis in a long time,2 said Kyrgios on court. "And obviously playing someone as good as Felix, I need my main weapon – my serve – to be firing on all cylinders and I just felt my ab.

"Definitely did something to it towards the end of the first set. That’s just the way it goes "He’s a hell of a player, he’s going to do some special things in this sport. "Playing out here and having this kind of support, has made me have a second wind.

I reckon I’m gonna come back and play for a bit longer I reckon. "I did all I could to prepare to get here,’ he added.’ ‘I beat a heck of a player first round and I played a great second round. "Just to get out here again and play two sets, I tried to play as long as I could and I’m sorry that I couldn’t give you more today but you’ll see a lot of him in the future. And he’s better looking too, so it’s all good."
