Nick Kyrgios felt that he definitely played very well in the Wimbledon final and would have won if he had played against anyone other than Novak Djokovic. Kyrgios, 27, faced Djokovic in his first Grand Slam final at Wimbledon.
Kyrgios’ serve was excellent throughout the final, but Djokovic – who is considered the best returner in the world – still managed to win 4-6 6-3 6-4 7-6 (3) . This week on Instagram, Kyrgios hosted a Q&A with fans.
A fan wanted to know what Kyrgios learned playing his first Grand Slam final. “Honestly I feel like my first Slam final was awesome, next time I’ll try to ride the emotional wave a bit more gently, but I realize how much was at stake.
I think if I was against someone other than Djokovic in the final with the way I served that day, I would [have] won,” Kyrgios said, according to Sportskeeda.
Kyrgios has withdrawn from the Atlanta Open
Kyrgios was expected to start his summer on hard courts this week in Atlanta.
On Tuesday, Kyrgios stepped out on Center Court in Atlanta – but only to announce his withdrawal and apologize to fans who bought tickets to watch him. Kyrgios cited a knee injury as the reason for his withdrawal. “I just want to say that I’m extremely upset that I can’t compete tonight,” Kyrgios said.
“I won this tournament once and, you know, I’m playing some of the best tennis of my career. All I wanted to do was come and give you a show and obviously see what I’m capable of. , but I can’t give my best performance today.
I am extremely sorry but I will keep hope alive and maybe I can continue the double with Thanasi this week”.
