Kyrgios focused on Japan Open ahead of court date for alleged assault: “There’s only so much I can control”

Nick Kyrgios's assault case will have its hearing on Tuesday in Australia and he confirmed that he's mostly thinking about the court.

Kyrgios is in Tokyo to take part in the Japan Open event this week and he's not thinking about his court case back home. He didn't offer many comments on the matter but rather explained that he's simply focusing on things he can control:

“There’s only so much I can control and I’m taking all the steps and dealing with that off the court. I can only do what I can and I’m here in Tokyo and just trying to play some good tennis, continue that momentum and just try to do my job - and that’s play tennis, play it well. That’s it.”

He comes to Tokyo with a lot of motivation because the US Open exit left him very disappointed:

“I thought the US Open was a great chance - obviously that one really, really hurt because I definitely thought that I was the favourite after I beat (Daniil) Medvedev. Now I just have to wait until the Australian Open but I just want to keep my form, the way I’m playing, I want to keep that going. I’m doing all the right things so I definitely think I can win a Grand Slam, for sure."
