Nick Kyrgios receives high accolades from Yoshihito Nishioka following the Washington final.
Yoshihito Nishioka, a tennis player from Japan, was amazed by Nick Kyrgios‘ serving performance in the Washington final. In order to win his second Washington championship on Sunday, Kyrgios defeated Nishioka 6-4, 6-3. During the game, Kyrgios had one break point, which he easily avoided thanks to some solid serving.
After the match, Nishioka referred to Kyrgios as the best server on the Tour and said that it was difficult to defend against his serve. According to Sportskeeda, Nishioka added, “Well, I think he has the best service on tour, No. 1.”
“It’s not just service, though. service activity I believe that his service game is the hardest on the tour to break. That is my opinion.”
Nishioka anticipated that handling Kyrgios‘ serve would be challenging.
Nishioka acknowledged before the match that Kyrgios would probably be impossible to defeat on a good serving day.
Nishoka remarked, “You know, if he making 80% first service, I can’t do anything.” “So occasionally, like going to occasionally, but occasionally, like not. If I have a chance and I succeed, I might have a chance to win.
I may lose if I don’t. So we’ll wait and see how everything goes before relaxing tomorrow.” Kyrgios won 88 percent of his points on first serves but only winning 64 percent of his points on second serves. Single one game featured Kyrgios having some service issues, and that was the match in which Nishioka was able to save his only break point.
Nishioka had no genuine chance in Kyrgios‘ serve games outside from that. Kyrgios didn’t lose a single service game during his five matches in Washington. Since the grass season, Kyrgios has been serving exceptionally effectively, and his serve has been a key factor in his recent success.
