Kyrgios believes he would have defeated anyone besides Djokovic at the Wimbledon final

Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios feels he played extremely well in the 2022 Wimbledon final and claims he would have won if he was playing against anyone other than Novak Djokovic.

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.

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.
