"I didn't feel the best, a bit worn out" - Kyrgios after battle with Fokina

Nick Kyrgios looked uncomfortable on the court against Davidovich Fokina but the Australian rose to the occasion and won the match in two sets.

It was a very slow start for Kyrgios in his match against Davidovich Fokina but over time the Australian was able to find his tennis and cruise to a victory. Despite the solid play, Kyrgios quite uncomfortable on the court, especially early and he admitted post-match that he felt worn out:

“You just have to continue to keep pushing and keep trying. I didn’t feel the best physically, a bit worn out with everything, but I just mentally played the big points well. I got broken back, but I used that energy to push returns in and then force another break. It’s not easy out here, so I’m happy with that.”

He also credited his opponent for being a very talented player:

“He’s a tricky player, he’s so talented, he’s got so many shots at his disposal. So I knew that I just had to serve well and then dictate as much as I can. His backhand is incredible. It was a tricky match."

Up nect is Taylor Fritz for him and the Aussie hopes to keep it going:

“The conditions are a lot different here to Montreal. It’s more lively, harder to hit the ball in, but I responded well and returned well today. Hopefully I can keep it going."
