Former ATP ace praises Nick Kyrgios’ attitude

The US Open 2022 is shaping up to be quite an uncertain tournament. The big favorite would be Novak Djokovic, but his participation is highly doubted. Not being vaccinated against the Coronavirus, the Serbian phenomenon could be banned from entering the United States.

The CDC has equated vaccinated and unvaccinated in internal processing, but the rules at the border have not changed at this time. The presence of Alexander Zverev is also very threatened. The semi-finalist of the last edition is still recovering from the terrible ankle injury he treated at Roland Garros.

Although he did not cancel the last Grand Slam of the season, the German admitted that it will be very difficult for him to arrive in New York in top form. The spotlight will therefore be on the outgoing champion Daniil Medvedev and Rafael Nadal, who will have a good chance of winning his 23rd Major.

The 36-year-old from Manacor didn’t shine in Cincinnati, but he still delivered great tennis in the Big Apple. Also watch Nick Kyrgios, who is having the best season of his career. Speaking to Tennis Channel, Andy Roddick urged opponents and pundits not to underestimate the Australian.

Andy Roddick on Kyrgios

If the absences of Novak Djokovic (unvaccinated) and Alexander Zverev (ankle injury) are confirmed, Nick Kyrgios will have a little more room at the US Open where he has great ambitions after his Wimbledon final.

Historically, this tournament has not really been successful for him even though he has reached the 3rd round several times, but that does not prevent Andy Roddick from placing him among the big favorites for this 2022 edition.

“I find it very important that he travels to Washington, which is a key event in the preparation for the US Open. The conditions are brutal…To play singles and doubles and not break down mentally or physically is a very , very good sign.

I think he’s one of two or three favorites for the US Open,” the American consultant told Tennis Channel despite Nick’s pretty heavy loss to Taylor Fritz in Cincinnati this week. Kyrgios, when asked if he finds himself more connected with the fans and at some level of understanding with the media now, said: “The fans are great.

I mean, without the fans there really isn’t any excitement, there really isn’t a sport without the fans”. Afterwards, he added: “As for the media, I don’t care. I do it because I have to be here and I don’t want to be fined. So I mean it’s routine.
