Nick is all set to feature in the ATP 250 warm-up event at Melbourne which will begin a couple of weeks before the grand Australian Open stars. Expressing his elation on receiving the wild card, Nick said, “giving me a wild card is awesome. I’ll do my best to put on a show for the fans.”

Nick also opened up about how he has faced difficulty in motivating himself to keep going for glory. The Aussie stated that now he doesn’t play just for himself. “I don’t really play for myself anymore, I obviously have my NK Foundation, but I just play for everyone, all the kids and everyone, who you know, kind of lacks confidence, who is very insecure.”

He further added that he can relate to those kids as he used to be in a similar situation as them when he was younger. “I can relate to that as a young kid growing up. I was a bit overweight.” He further stated, “I definitely feel when I’m playing, I’m playing for a lot of people, that I’m very relatable. I just play and I try to give people hope and inspire them to just go and be comfortable in your own skin.

Nick claimed that he is very excited to make a comeback on the court on his home turf. “Tennis Australia has done a great job getting things together,” he concluded. Without a doubt, Kyrgios is a wonderful talent, and although he has been involved in a lot of controversies over time, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that whenever he plays, it gets difficult for the viewers to focus on anything else.
