“I don’t think we’ll ever see…”

Nick Kyrgios will not play Taylor Fritz in the Tokyo quarterfinals. Nick felt pain in his knee during practice and decided to withdraw from singles and doubles. Nick recorded two wins to reach the round of 16 in singles, beating Chun-Hsin Tseng 6-3 6-1 in 66 minutes and coming from behind against Kamil Majchrzak.

The Australian beat the Pole 3-6 6-2 6-2 in one hour and 21 minutes, overcoming a slow start and dominating sets two and three. Nick hit 22 aces and avoided two out of three break points. Kamil had a chance to go a set and a break, but he blew it early in the second set, receiving four breaks to end his run into the second round.

Kyrgios conceded 43 winners and 19 unforced errors, played well but failed to chase the title. Kamil broke Nick in game two when the Aussie hit a long backhand. The Pole held the 3-0 lead in seven minutes. Majchrzak served for the first game at 5-3 and managed to hold serve with a service winner.

Nick saved a break point in the first game of the second set and closed it out with a winner to extend the lead. The Pole avoided a break point in the second game with an ace and leveled at 2-2 two games later. Kyrgios served well for the rest of the set and kept the pressure on the other end.

Majchrzak suffered a setback in game six and trailed 4-2. Nick got another break in game eight to close out the set and level the aggregate score in less than an hour. The Australian was untouchable after the opening stroke in the final set and the Pole had to maintain that pace to stay in contention.

Kamil was way off that pace and Nick broke him in game two with a forehand winner down the line.

Kyrgios praises King Roger

After posting a few souvenir photos on Instagram of him performing, younger, alongside Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios spoke at length about the Swiss’s retirement.

He pays a powerful and moving tribute to the one he beat once in seven confrontations. “He’s the best player to ever hold a racket and the most natural player ever seen. People took Federer for granted.

His way of playing, what he’s done for the sport, the fans, the people, his role as a role model, his foundation, his work, overall I think he’s a complete role model in and out of shorts and I don’t think we’ll ever see someone who was able to get the crowd behind him like that. His departure is a sad day, he is the best of the best,” the Australian said.
