"When I look at this photo, it reminds me of the struggle I've been through lately, 2 surgeries in the last year and a half after being so close to a Grand Slam.

Let this remind me that I won't give up, I'm going through this process day day after day and has allowed me to take full advantage of other amazing things in my life, opportunities that I would never have known about if I hadn't gotten injured.

If you feel stuck or feel like you don't know what's going to happen next, just take the next step you see and make sure it's in the right direction. Contact us anytime because I assure you we all feel this way sometimes!"

With this beautiful message shared on his Instagram account, Nick Kyrgios shared with his fans and followers some sensations that he has experienced firsthand in the last two difficult years spent trying to overcome the physical problems that torment him.

A message of resilience, a skill that an athlete (but all people) must have to face difficulties, that you can read below:

Nick Kyrgios provides an important update on his physical condition

In 2023, a few days before the start of the Australian Open, Nick Kyrgios announced his retirement due to a knee injury. An injury that forced him to undergo surgery and undergo a long rehabilitation period.

Recovery times suddenly took longer and the Australian played only one match last year, when he did everything to participate in the grass season. His goal was to arrive in the best possible conditions at Wimbledon, where he defended the final, but the bad defeat against Yibing Wu in Stuttgart raised new alarm bells.
Answering fans' questions on his Instagram account, Kyrgios released important updates on his current physical condition.

"I honestly see improvements day after day with my wrist and I'm in the middle of getting back into shape. I'm not sure of the exact timeframe, but I will be back. I will be cautious and take my time. We know what happens when I'm healthy," he told.

Among the curiosities of fans, one could not miss that relating to the matches played by Kyrgios against the best players in the world.

A user asked him bluntly: "What goes through your mind when you face tennis players like Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal?"

The Australian replied: "I just wanted to show the world that a guy can stand up and beat tennis players who look like gods."

In an interesting interview with the famous journalist Jemele Hill on the talk show Good Trouble, Kyrgios also analyzed his professional and life path.

"My journey in the world of tennis is a little different from yours in that of journalism. I hated tennis. I was very overweight as a child and my mother dragged me to the tennis courts to get me active and lose weight. I didn't want to playing it, I was crying. It was traumatizing to be honest," he explained.

"I loved basketball and the culture of that sport. I would sit for hours watching tapes and CDs. I loved everything about basketball: the locker room and the teamwork. Listening to your talk about the passion you have for writing, I would being able to go back in time and follow the dream of the NBA.

I guess my parents pushed me towards tennis. They love this sport and it is very popular in Australia. They saw that I had talent and saw it as a way to have a better life. Maybe it was fate, I wouldn't be here otherwise," he added.

Kyrgios finally provided a clue about his future. The 28-year-old from Canberra has played only one match in 2023 due to the knee injury: "I'll be back on the court soon, I have a protected ranking of number 21 in singles and 11 in doubles."
