Kyrgios believes he would have defeated anyone besides Djokovic at the Wimbledon final
Kyrgios took on Djokovic in the Aussie's maiden Grand Slam final, but was unable to prevent the Serbian from winning his seventh Wimbledon title. Despite maintaining a high first serve percentage, Kyrgios fell 4-6 6-3 6-4 7-6(3) as Djokovic's return game was impeccable on that day.
"I'm 60 in the world but I feel like I'm Top 10" - Kyrgios confident despite possibly not being seeded at US Open
In an Instagram Q&A session that Kyrgios held with his fans, Kyrgios was asked what he had learned from playing in his first Grand Slam final.
"Honestly, I feel as if my first Slam final was impressive, next time I would try to ride the emotional wave a little smoother but I realize how much was on the line," admitted the former World No.13.
"I feel if I was up against anyone else but Djokovic in the final with the way I served that day, I would have won."
Kyrgios was scheduled to kick off his hard-court summer series at the Atlanta Open this week, but withdrew moments before his opening match, citing a knee injury.
