Very impressive from the junior world number one. He will find himself at around #330 in Monday's rankings.

Sure, there are bound to be some comments about proving himself outside Australia, but he sure has proved himself inside Australia.

Congrats to him!

Somebody to describe Kyrgios's game to all of us who never seen him play?

So so so glad that he won! He's had a blistering start to the year

Seppi — Garcia-Lopez — Simon — Klizan — Gasquet — Paire — Pouille — Halys
and every single Australian player out there

Big serve, big forehand, very good doubles results with multiple partners (sound volleys), first strike tennis, brave on big points, rather vocal on court.

The only thing I would add is - he is fierce, plays with fire in his heart and doesn't shy away from anything.

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

He has been winning comfortably against top 300 players.

Finally a youngster stands up, even in such a bad draw.

Nice additions.

What I also like is how his power seems to come very naturally.

just missed out on the doubles title too - Bolty and Nick had 2 match points as well. Still, a great effort given he played the semi + final of the singles AND the remainder of the doubles semi before the final of the doubles.

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