World No. 45 Nick Kyrgios says he has made some top-10 players “look ordinary” this year and added he is confident he can beat anybody at this year’s Wimbledon. Kyrgios, 27, has played good tennis throughout the entire year and he has had three top-10 wins this year.
Kyrgios’ most recent top-10 win came two weeks ago in Stuttgart, where he defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas 5-7 6-2 6-4. “I’ve played top-10 players in the world this year and made them look pretty ordinary. I know where my game’s at.
I know if I’m feeling confident, I’m playing well, I’m able to just light it up kind of whenever I want. Do I feel I can beat anybody in the draw on my day? Yeah. Good sleep, good rest. I think that’s one.
Make sure your body’s in good Nick,” Kyrgios said, per Essentially Sports.
Kyrgios on facing Paul Jubb
In the Wimbledon first round, Kyrgios faces British wildcard Jubb. Jubb is ranked just outside the top-200 in the world and Kyrgios is the absolute favorite going into their match.
“I feel like I can put myself in his shoes very well,” Kyrgios said. “I was once that kid that got a wildcard at the Australian Open. It felt really good just to be around, soak it all in, the media, the fans, everything, the hype.
I know how he’s going to be feeling. He’s going to go out there and he’s going to just play freely, nothing to lose”. Kyrgios has had a good grass season so far and he will be hoping to finish it with a strong Wimbledon run.
After reaching back-to-back semifinals in Stuttgart and Halle, Kyrgios won his Mallorca opener before an abdominal pain forced him to give Roberto Bautista Agut a walkover in the last-16. Kyrgios can definitely play well on grass and tennis pundits all agree that Kyrgios is the player to watch out at this year’s Wimbledon.
