Very good, besides that choke in the second set (which he served for).

If he can stay injury free, that serve will hold him in good stead.

Going well. Took advantage of the decent draw. Well done.
Just hope his shoulder/elbow holds up.

Teenager Is One of Australia’s Remaining Hopes


Quote:
With a serve that can reach nearly 137 miles per hour and a powerful all-court game, Nick Kyrgios has been gaining attention for some time.

After early exits for Lleyton Hewitt and Bernard Tomic on Tuesday, the burden of Australian expectations in the men’s draw has shifted to the 18-year-old Kyrgios. He bludgeoned 71 winners on the way to an impressive 6-3, 6-7 (5), 6-2, 7-6 (2) first-round victory over the German veteran Benjamin Becker. He will play the No. 27 seed Benoit Paire of France in the second round.

“It was really special, this win,” Kyrgios told reporters afterward. “He’s a really solid player. I knew I was going to have to hit through him a bit. My game sort of revolves around being pretty aggressive.”

Kyrgios, 6-foot-3 and agile, looks born to play tennis on the big stage, but when he first took to the court in Canberra at 4, Coach Andrew Bulley did not see him as a natural athlete.

Lleyton Hewitt came back from two sets down against Andreas Seppi only to lose in five.Australians’ Grand Slam Hopes Wilt in Melbourne HeatJAN. 14, 2014
The youngster was described as “chubby” and “a bit slow,” but what he lacked in foot speed he seemed to compensate for by exploiting his opponent’s weaknesses and possessing a relentless determination to win.

These qualities were in evidence Tuesday as midafternoon temperatures neared 108 degrees. But Kyrgios said the heat, which will continue through the end of the week, worked to his advantage.

“I think it suits my game pretty well,” he told reporters. “The more aggressive you are, I think it helps a lot. It helps my serving. Obviously it’s affecting everyone out there. You got to stay hydrated. You got to be smart with nutrition, as well.”

Kyrgios has not always been quite so smart with his nutrition. But after a breakthrough 2012 season, when he won the boys’ doubles titles at Wimbledon and the French Open, he lost more than 10 pounds during an intense off-season training regime.

The results were immediate. In 2013, he established himself as the world’s leading teenager, claiming the Australian Open junior title before becoming the youngest winner of an ATP Challenger Tour event since Rafael Nadal. He also defeated Radek Stepanek in the first round of the French Open.

The latter two accomplishments were achieved under the watchful eye of Simon Rea, a New Zealander who has played a key role in helping his young charge adjust to the mental demands of the pro tour.

“If you start showing a lot of emotion, then the guys at the top level take advantage,” Kyrgios said in an interview before the Australian Open. “You just have to stay really composed on court and take your time when you need to.”

That maturity is evident in a growing number of young Australian prospects, including the 19-year-old Jordan Thompson, who led No. 20 seed Jerzy Janowicz by two sets to love Monday one before losing in five. Thanasi Kokkinakis, 17, advanced to the second round and will face No. 1 Rafael Nadal next.

“A lot of people are saying the next generation is coming through,” Kyrgios said. “It’s pretty exciting for us. A bit of expectation and pressure. But we’re all a pretty close bunch. Me and Thommo have grown up together and I’m expecting big things from him this year. We’re pushing each other. Having the likes of Lleyton still going out there and competing with the best, it sets a good example for us young guys. We’re doing our best to get some results.”

Nick wins the 1st set against Paire, after saving a bunch of SPs a break down and then wasting a bunch of BPs on 6-5*, he gets it done 7-5 in the TB. Keep it up, Nick!

He played great until he fatigued. Give him another 12 months and he would win this match.

A pity after being two sets and a break up, but these are learning situations. Come back stronger, Nick!

Lack of conditioning. Bottom line - needs to get stronger and fitter, and work on movement.

Nick played a great match, a true talent. Some of his play was sublime, bordering on the ridiculous, as was the game of Paire, who has such wonderful hands.

A great match to watch until midway through the fourth set, when Nick was seriously hampered by minor cramping and fatigue.

I think it'll take him a bit longer. Over 100 points are coming off his ranking next month and that will leave him over 300 points shy of the top 100. Davis Cup makes it so he can't play Bernie and West Lakes Challengers. With any luck, he'll get into Indian Well and Miami qualifying draws. I think they would be great events for him as he'd get to play three matches before facing a top 32 player (and even then I'd give him a shot in most cases).

Anyway, enough of that. Thanks Nick for an awesome display! That was the most fun I've had watching a tennis match in a long time. Clutch, powerful and flamboyant. And what a fighter.

Quite an arrogant little one we have here, too bad about his fanbase

Has he (or Kokinakis), or any of his fans read Christos Tsiolkas's books or seen the Slap?
