Kyrgios, who is the top seed in the boys’ draw, won his first round match 64 64 over Maxime Janvier of France. But it wasn’t exactly a smooth day for the 18-year-old, who was challenged closely by Janvier.
“I went through some stages out there today we’re I was struggling a fair bit,” Kyrgios admitted. “I came out there pretty nervous because obviously there’s a lot of expectations this week. It’s obviously good to get through and I’m going to try to go out there with my best mentality next round.”
So he was pretty nervous. It must be weird going from having little expectations (at least from a media and tournament director perspective) to very high expectations as the number one seed.
