Aussie maverick Nick Kyrgios takes on world number 106 Mackenzie Mcdonald in the initial round of the Citi Open to be held in Washington.
The match kicks off an important run of events till the US open and can boast of many star players participating in it, Rafael Nadal playing in it should be enough reputation. Kyrgios, forever a mystery, will be hoping to put in a consistent run of form in what will only be the 5th tournament that he will be playing in the calendar year of 2021.
He does, however, come up against a player who favours the surface in Mackenzie Mcdonald. His run to the 4th round of the Australian Open earlier this year shows he surely does. Both of Kyrgios and Macdonald do however enter the tournament unseeded and will be hoping to make a deep run into the prestigious Citi Open.

Nick Kyrgios will be looking himself back into tennis shape but made an interesting comment regarding retirement recently so hos much he is invested in the game remains to be seen but there are no such doubts about 26-year-old world number 106 Mcdonald.
Kyrgios has dropped his biggest hint yet that he is considering retiring from tennis soon and his passion for the sport is wavering. The 26-year-old has openly said he doesn’t intend to continue playing long into his thirties and isn’t desperate to win a grand slam like many other players.
Speaking about his career to reporters, he made the intriguing confession he doesn’t know if each tournament he plays will be his last there.
“I definitely feel, I mean, it’s pretty crazy. I don’t know. I don’t know. Like, when I come here (Washington) and I play, I feel vibes” Kyrgios said. “Like every time I’m at a tournament, I feel like it could be the last time I’m ever going to be here. In Atlanta, I felt the same way. I don’t know. I don’t know where I’m at. I feel weird. I feel strange about my career at the moment,” said Nick.
