After securing a double victory in Washington, Nick Kyrgios was ecstatic and is now expecting to keep up his excellent form for the remainder of the North American hard court tour. Kyrgios played twice this past Sunday, which is reserved for tennis finals.
Kyrgios won his first ATP singles championship since 2019 by defeating Yoshihito Nishioka 6-4, 6-3 in the Washington singles final. After capturing the singles crown in Washington, Kyrgios and partner Jack Sock took the court to capture the doubles crown in Washington, DC, by defeating Ivan Dodig and Austin Krajicek 7-5 6-4.
Kyrgios made tournament history by being the first person to win both the singles and doubles crowns in the same calendar year. According to the ATP website, Kyrgios said after his two victories in Washington, “I’m incredibly thrilled to take home both titles.”
“I’m hoping I can maintain this momentum.”
Congratulations to Sock and Kyrgios for capturing the Washington doubles title.
Despite the fact that Kyrgios‘ primary focus is on singles, he always gave it his all when playing with Sock.
Sock praised Kyrgios for giving his all each time they took the court after the doubles match. Sock stated to Dodig and Krajicek, “We knew it was always going to be a tough match against you guys.
“To have a chance today, we had to unquestionably play at our peak. Nick has my gratitude for persevering. Most men wouldn’t act that way. Since it’s so hot and muggy here in D.C., I didn’t think he’d be all that fresh for the doubles.
Every time, he came out with all of his enthusiasm, which speaks volumes about his preparation efforts both on and off the court.” Kyrgios and Sock have won two doubles championships so far. On Lyon’s clay courts in 2018, Kyrgios and Sock took home the overall title.
It would be interesting to watch if Kyrgios and Sock decide to collaborate once more before the season is up after demonstrating their ability to play well together.
