Nick Kyrgios will make the top 100 before the end of 2013!!!

This is an extremely bold statement, he is almost a certainty to win his first ever mens event and its a challenger. The field wasn't heaps strong but still for a 17 year old to take out players like Klein, Klec, Jones, Robert and now Reid all with ease except Jones is amazing.

He is in the doubles semi later today where him and Bolty will resume their match 7-6 3-3 ahead. If he went the double and won both would be huge...

Personally I hope TA take the chance and give him the wildcards at Roland Garros and the US Open.

Unfortunately the match has just been suspended due to rain, Nick leads 5-2 in the second serving for the match.

What do others think about his year?

Obviously I'm very excited. It will be interesting to see what his schedule is leading into the French Open. It's a bit early to tell if he will get those Roland Garros and US Open wild cards you talk about; he still needs to prove himself on clay and the US Open is a long while off.

I hope he does well. The only young Aussie I hope doesn't do well is the clown who unforgivably lost a set to Pova and failed tennis.

I'm glad he destroyed that racist prick Klein and no surprise Klein called him a gorilla.

It is a bold statement, but when you know Nick, nothing seems too much for him. He always finds a way to lift and to achieve. I'd back this statement, the raw talent is there as is the passion.

Failure is not falling down, but refusing to get back up.

Re: Nick Kyrgios will make the top 100 before the end of 2013!!!

When I watched the junior final of the AO, I was more impressed by the game of Kokkinakis (or maybe just I liked it more, I prefered his technique and variety). Too bad he's injured now, but in some years Australia could have a terrible DC team with this two guys (if Kokkinakis can grow up without injury...)

Nick has a very good serve and good FH. He seems to be strong mentally for a young player (in the final of the AO, he saved 2 SPs in the first with aces if I remember well).

Anyway his win is a big accomplishement. I don't think he'll finish the year in top 100, but who knows, he's improving that fast... With his current level, he'll be top 200 for sure, and could have a chance for top 150 if he get a WC in a big event and can get a good run.

It's good Australia is finally alive in tennis. You are doing good job.
But pressure will be all over him at AO, that's sucks.

He's not and won't be a house hold name by the AO so I don't think there's any pressure. Has 0 points to defend so nothing to lose, Matosevic was our top ranked player coming into the open and basically nobody knew him out of tennis fanatics.

Former being the key word.

192 and will be higher after his semi this week, he has been in good form in Australia beating the likes of Barton, Millman, Jones and Bolt. Won a future event few weeks back with basically the same field as this challenger...

Re: Nick Kyrgios will make the top 100 before the end of 2013!!!

Therein lies my point The_Aussie17, in order to get back up the rankings Robert has been playing in extremely weak challengers.

Rather than putting pressure on the kid, just let him grow and see what happens.

You've allowed the fact it's a Challenger event to cloud your thinking. The field was weak so it's hard to read too much into it.

He's about to turn 18 in April. Winning a local Challenger tournament isn't very impressive.
