I have proven myself, I don’t mind difficult prints


World number 93 Nick Kyrgios isn’t concerned about his ranking as he thinks everyone knows what he’s capable of. Kyrgios, a former world No.13, has six ATP titles in his collection. Additionally, Kyrgios said he talks a lot, but admitted he has beaten up many notable names. Kyrgios had at least one victory over every member of the Big Three group.

“If I’m ranked 1000 or 10 in the world, everyone knows what I’m capable of on tour,” Kyrgios said, according to the ATP website. “I’m not an unproven player… I talk a lot, but I’ve also beaten a lot of players and won a lot of tournaments.

“I won the seedless Acapulco and beat four Top 10 players. Such tough draws [don’t bother me]… It’s not something I focus on, honestly. I just want to go out and have fun. People expect me to put on a good show and I think I’m still able to do it ”.

Kyrgios set to start Sydney season

Kyrgios withdrew from this week’s Melbourne Summer Set because he was not feeling well. “Last week, with everything floating around these days, obviously I thought it was Covid,” he said.

“I felt pretty average… I was testing with those quick tests and all that other stuff, I was testing a lot, coming back negative every time. “I just wanted to get over it. I still feel the effects, as if my breathing is a little affected.

I don’t feel 100% on the court yet… I didn’t want to start last week at around 60%… I didn’t want to go out there and force myself to play under these circumstances ”. Kyrgios is expected to make his second appearance in Sydney. Kyrgios lost to Jerzy Janowicz in the Sydney first round in 2015.
