Nick Kyrgios: ‘I want to be able to provide for her’


Just on the first day of competition at the Australian Open, one of the main favorites for the title left. And it was not due to a bad action on the track, it is that he did not even enter it. The local idol Nick Kyrgios announced his withdrawal from this year’s edition of the first Grand Slam of the season due to a meniscus injury that will make him undergo surgery. While the opening day of the Australian Open was taking place, the current world number 21 called an emergency press conference to make the news known, where he was greatly affected after having to give up what he considered his best opportunity to win a “big” tournament. “I have a mixture of emotions difficult to assume. Since I left the US Open I thought about this tournament, I totally focused on this event, I was very excited. This comes at a very bad time, but injuries are part of the life of an athlete. It only remains to accept it, I have no doubt that I will return stronger than ever. I will do whatever it takes to come back as the favorite for this tournament,” said the 27-year-old. “I’ve barely been able to sleep the last few nights. I feel constant pain in my knee and every time I press down I get a pinch. I have a lump on the side of my knee and it will only get bigger if I keep it up. Playing with pain from time to time is acceptable, but this situation is totally incompatible with playing a tournament like this. Losing a Grand Slam is a step backwards, but the sensible thing to do is to make sure that the problem doesn’t end up jeopardizing my sports career,” he added at a press conference. The Australian was scheduled to debut on day 2 of the tournament against the Russian Román Safiulin, a rival that shouldn’t have cost him much trouble.

Kyrgios shocked everyone

Controversial Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios recently discussed his girlfriend and revealed his ultimate life goal, among other things. “I spoil her. I bought her a $15,000 bag yesterday, so she has it pretty good. I want to be able to provide for her and the family one day and that’s the ultimate goal,” Kyrgios said. “She’s, like, ‘Well, you don’t have to get it if you don’t want to.’ And I was, like, I know girls and I know when she says ‘fine’ that means that she really wanted me to get it,” the Aussie added.
