Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios is known for his bold statements regarding tennis players. A few days back he made a statement on World No.1 Novak Djokovic and on former World No.1 Rafael Nadal.

His boldness and fearlessness can be seen in his game. He claims to fear no player and likes to take risks. He is an aggressive player like Novak Djokovic. His serve is his strength. Nick’s second serve has often been regarded as one of the best on the ATP Tour and is often hit at speeds above 200km/h.

Kyrgios’ current ranking according to the Association of Tennis Professionals is World No.93 and his highest ranking according to the ATP was World No.13. He has six singles titles to his name and one doubles title. He won the Hopman Cup in 2016.

Big 3 of Tennis

Recently in an interview, Nick talked about the Big 3 of tennis, namely Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. He said that if they will not be present at the Aussie Open, 2022, the event would become an absolute disaster.

Roger will miss the Australian Open because of his injury and Rafa is still not sure of his participation because of him being tested positive for COVID-19. As of Novak, his participation is still a mystery whether the AO authorities would let him participate without revealing his vaccination status or not.

“I hope he’s had a good Christmas and I hope he’s able to play in the sport for as long as possible because I’ve voiced before I think Federer, Nadal and Djokovic need to be (playing). If all three aren’t there, it’s a disaster. It’s an absolute disaster for the fans and the people that enjoy tennis. Yes, it’s obviously a good opportunity for some of the younger guys to come through and make an impact but, as a whole, we do need them to be part of the sport.” Nick said.
