Focused Kyrgios victorious at last
INJURY- PLAGUED Nick Kyrgios has tasted victory for the first time since May, beating Viktor Troicki 6- 1, 6- 2 at the Rogers Cup in Montreal.
The match was the first the world No. 24 has completed in his past three encounters after his longstanding hip problem forced him to retire from Queen’s Club, Wimbledon and last week’s Citi Open in Washington.
Kyrgios looked fresh and focused, seeing off Troicki in 51 minutes, but warned he was rolling the dice with the injury, which he admits could flare up any time.
“I’m feeling it time,” Kyrgios said.
“It’s not something that is just going to heal. I can compete so that’s the most I can do at the moment.”
With his mother watching from the stands, the hotheaded Canberran kept his cool against an overmatched opponent who has been struggling with his own injury issues.
“I just wanted to come out here and try and get the win,” Kyrgios said. “I’ve been struggling the last couple of months.
“He’s been struggling as well with injuries so all the best to him.” all the
