Biography

Overview

A former world No.1 junior, Nick Kyrgios made a stunning transition to the pro ranks. In his Wimbledon debut in 2014, he saved nine match points against Richard Gasquet before his fourth round upset of world No.1 Rafael Nadal. Kyrgios then became the first man since Roger Federer to reach two major quarterfinals as a teen with another big run at the Australian Open in 2015. Now ranked No.18, Kyrgios is a proven big-stage performer.

Personal

One of the game’s biggest personalities might have pursued another sport, when the teenage Kyrgios chose tennis over basketball. ‘Team’ still means everything to Nick, who especially loves time spent with his family – parents George and Nil, brother Christos and sister Halimah – at home in Canberra. A huge NBA fan, Kyrgios’ favorite team is the Boston Celtics.

Career

Kyrgios’ talent is unquestionable – but maintaining full health has proved a challenge. A hip injury impacted his 2017 season and he missed Roland Garros in 2018 with an elbow complaint. At his best, Kyrgios’ flashy and unpredictable game make him electrifying to watch. Kyrgios thrives in team events and the big server has posted nine career wins over top five-ranked opponents.
