Kyrgios In 'the Most Uncomfortable' Situation After US Open Nightmare

Share Market Daily Writer By Mahesh Limbani Published August 30, 2022

In the first round of the US Open, Nick Kyrgios defeated Thanasi Kokkinakis in straight sets. On Monday evening, the doubles partners and great friends faced off for the first time. 

After winning the Australian Open earlier this year, Kyrgios and Kokkinakis shot to doubles stardom. As individual competitors, the former was considered a heavy favorite against the latter.

Although Kyrgios reached the Wimbledon final last month, he entered the US Open as the 23rd seed, but many expect him to go on another barnstorming run.

To start his campaign, he dispatched Kokkinakis with a 6-3 6-4 7-6 win but later explained that the mental battle was anything but straightforward.

"It was a nightmare when we saw the draw. I feel like I'll probably stay in touch with two or three players after tennis until I probably die, to be honest with you.

" Thanasi is one of them. It's just really hard. I tried blocking out my opponent's attacks. In the first couple of sets, I played extremely well from the back of the court.

Kyrgios' fans will keep their fingers crossed that he can replicate his Wimbledon success at the US Open, but the 27-year-old himself says he simply can't wait to return home.
