As he waits for good news following the conclusion of his case at a magistrates court in Canberra, Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios says he is concentrating on what he can control. Kyrgios is due in court on Tuesday to answer charges of simple assault.
Kyrgios, 27, was charged with assaulting Chiara Passari, his ex-girlfriend. Kyrgios will not attend the court hearing since he will be represented by his attorneys while competing this week at the ATP 500 in Tokyo. “I’m taking all the necessary steps and handling things off the court because I have little influence over it.
I’m here in Tokyo trying to play good tennis, keep up the momentum, and try to do my job, which is to play tennis and play it well. I can only do what I can. I’m done now “Kyrgios remarked. Kyrgios hopes to win the US Open after finishing second to Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon final.
Kyrgios was performing admirably at New York, where he even defeated top seed Daniil Medvedev in the round of 16. Kyrgios was the overwhelming favorite to win the US Open after defeating Medvedev. Then, in the quarterfinals against Karen Khachanov, he lost in a heartbreaking and humiliating five-set defeat.
While Kyrgios did not win his first Grand Slam championship this year, he did demonstrate that he is capable of going far in a Grand Slam. “The US Open, in my opinion, was a fantastic chance. Obviously, after defeating (Daniil) Medvedev, I felt like the favorite, so this wounded me a lot.
I only have to wait till the Australian Open, but I want to keep playing in this manner and maintaining my form. I believe I’m following the correct procedures, so I’m confident I can win a Grand Slam “Kyrgios remarked.
Kyrgios has a shot at a Grand Slam.
In stressful situations, Nick Kyrgios admitted that he frequently loses his temper on the court because he has high expectations for himself and because “millions of dollars are on the line.”
“I demand better from myself since I’ve been ice cold under it my entire life. Moreover, there are millions of dollars on the line. Do you have any experience with that?” In response to a question from a fan about why he becomes angry under pressure during matches, Kyrgios stated.
Kyrgios last competed in tennis at the Japan Open last week. Due to a knee injury, he withdrew before his quarterfinal matchup with Taylor Fritz.
