Nick Kyrgios - Yes He Canberra
 
Sorry for the somewhat premature thread but, as a Canberra born, I'm excited about Kyrgios.

Born: 27 Apr 1995
Birth place: Canberra, Australia
Plays: Right Handed (Double Handed Backhand)

Probably his biggest achievement to date came in doubles. He won (boys) Roland Garros and Wimbledon with Andrew Harris this year. His singles results have been coming along too, he recently won Canada (Grade 1) and made the quarters of Wimbledon and the US Open. Men's tour experience and results have been limited, but his showings have been respectable.

Already top 5 in juniors, he'll be one of the favourites for this year's u18 national championships and next year's junior Australian Open.

YES!! Wins his first attempt at a Futures quarter-final and will crack the top 1000 this month. Venus is a winnable match too.

Kyrgios is a genuine shot at becoming the world number one junior in January next year. He's #5 and will be #4 if he wins the title. The top three go off the rankings on January 1st (as they are born 1994) so things are looking good. The equation is complicated by some junior Asian 2011 points coming off soon.

Takes the title with some impressive serving. :D

Quote:

The boys final was a battle between local favourite Kaichi Uchida, seeded No.2, and Aussie Kyrgios who was looking to win his first Grade A singles title. There was nothing between the two players with the Aussie edging out a tight match 76(5) 76(4).

Kyrgios has enjoyed a lot of success in doubles this year with two doubles Grand Slam titles at Roland Garros at Wimbledon, but a first Grade A victory in singles was important for the Australian who commented after the match:

“I’m overwhelmed by this great achievement. I had to play some solid tennis to beat Uchida, he’s a very solid player. The crowd was really great, making it a good atmosphere. I really enjoyed my stay at Osaka, I played some of my best tennis here.”

Uchida knew going into the match that he had a big challenge on this hands, having lost the only previous singles meeting between the two players at this year’s Junior Wimbledon, as well as five previous doubles matches:

“I have had matches with Nick before, five times in doubles, one time in singles. All matches, I lose. The most risky shot that he has is his serve. The accuracy is quite good so for me it is very difficult to break his service games. The key today was how to hold my service games because his serve, at the important point of games, was very very effective and great. It was very tough match for me.”

Good news.



Not so good (from yesterday):

Quote:

Kyrgios has struggled with persistent knee injuries during the event and had both of his knees iced at the end of his match in preparation for tomorrow’s final.

Also drew top seed Groth in the 1st round of the wildcard playoff.

Re: Nick Kyrgios - Yes He Canberra
 
The good:
Beats (1) Groth in round one 6-4 6-2 3-6 6-3.

The bad:
Loses in round two to (8) Barton 6-7(3) 6-3 3-6 7-6(4) 4-3 retired.

The ugly:
He was up 4-0 40-0 in the 5th set and had to retire due to severe cramping. Over 17 hours on court over 11 matches in the past nine days is too much.
