Nick Kyrgios is a new man

Nick Kyrgios is a new man. During the press conference, the Australian tennis player said, “I’ve completely changed my lifestyle: I’m careful during practice, I’m careful about what I eat, my schedule and everything else. I feel I put a lot of pressure on myself.”

“I am trying to find a balance in my life, also because the press and fans go crazy wherever I go. I thought the final at Wimbledon would make me relax, but instead it gave me a way to work even harder. I feel I am finally acting like a professional. At this time in my career I don’t want to let anyone down anymore. I feel that I am a man and a tennis player who can inspire other people, and that gives me responsibility.”

Kyrgios then returned to the match he played against his close friend Thanasi Kokkinakis: “I did not expect such a complicated match. He played at a very high level and in the fourth I found myself at 4-4 0-40. I am glad I closed and avoided the fifth set, in a Slam it is crucial to save some energy. These are those typical matches where the main goal is to survive.”
