Nick Kyrgios has just experienced what he calls “one of the greatest weeks” so far in his life. This week was memorable as he won the title at the Washington Open, which is his sixth ATP win.
Kyrgios went against Daniil Medvedev in a 7-6(8-6) 7-6 (7-4) game, despite facing a poor opening set. In addition, he had to overcome back spasms that may have affected his game, but still he managed to push on.
While playing against Medvedev, the 24-year-old managed to hit 18 aces, and did not even face a break point. With his recent victory, he steps up and goes back among the Top 30 in the world.
When asked about how he felt after the match, Kyrgios said, “This is probably my best memory of a final. I left it all on the court… I’ve made massive strides. This whole week has been amazing. It’s a week I won’t forget.”
This is not the first time that Medvedev and Kyrgios went against each other. In the previous game, however, Kyrgios was only able to defeat the Russian in three sets. That was in one of the games that was held on clay courts in Rome.
According to Kyrgios, “In the past six months, it’s crazy to think how much I’ve been able to turn it around… I’m working hard to be better as a player and a person.”
