Default Nick Kyrgios schedule

Does anyone know what tournaments is proposing to play for the rest of the year? It would be nice to see him angling to pick up his first title...

At the moment he is listed as playing qualifying for Toronto and Cincinnati, plus of course USO.

Likely Davis Cup in September.

And I think I read his mother suggesting the Malaysian Open as a possibility?

Anything else known???

Unfortunately his website is totally out of date (even on coaches!).

I don't know.

But Nick I see as someone who will centre his schedule around big events (anti-vulture if you will). He initially was planning to play Atlanta and Washington, but now his ranking has shot up he's shooting for Canada and Cincinnati. That said, I guess he will play Kuala Lumpur due to his heritage. Davis Cup is a lock.

I would also love to see him angling for a title, but I just don't see that as his priority. I don't know him of course, but that's going off his previous playing history (and his tendency to peak for bigger events). I think he would rather a quarter/semi at a M1000 than an ATP250 title despite similar ranking points and prize money (but again, just a guess). Where are you Christos?

Yes he has certainly done that to date, but now he is in the top ranking group, he is surely going to have to play a few more matches to maintain and improve his ranking I would have thought.

In particular, a fair number of his points are off challengers wins which he will not really want to play in, will need to build a base to replace those points. And pretty much only the very top 5 (and not even all of them!) can maintain their ranking on the basis of M1000 and slams plus the minimum no 500s; on the face of it, everyone else plays quite a lot more, expecting some misses.

If he can get quarters/semis at M1000 on a regular basis of course, less of an issue, but you couldn't count on being that consistent yet I wouldn't have thought!

Also given the need for him to last out to the end of a slam, I would have thought more tournaments including some doubles would be an obvious next step (though there is a balance of course with the risk of injury/not overdoing it for someone still growing).

I think your last sentence is very relevant. Don't over-extend a growing, not yet 100% mature body. Choose your schedule very carefully Nick.

Yes indeed, careful balance to be juggled.

Still, on the face of it M1000s are the toughest possible way of trying to earn points given the cut, and the hardest to advance in, while 250s/500s provide an easier path and a way to build match experience.

At some point fairly soon a chunk of his schedule is going to be pretty much dictated by his ranking (he's already at 37 on the race, though whether he stays there obviously depends how he goes in this next run); best to build experience while free to do so on the face of it!

Anyway, I guess we'll just have to wait and see what his plans are...
