"I don't really know what goes on with him" - Patrick Rafter on Nick Kyrgios' return to the Australian national team for the United Cup
“I think it’s no secret Nick loves being in a team and a team competition,” Stosur said per The Age. “I’m sure this is going to be right up his alley, being an Australian team in Australia at the start of the year. He’ll be keen and ready to go.
“He’s our highest-ranked player in the country, and I’m certainly looking forward to watching him play. To be honest, I haven’t been on the sideline watching Nick in a live match. I do find his tennis really entertaining, and he’s an amazing player. To be right there this week is going to be lots of fun.
“It’s the United Cup, a united team. When the team’s out there playing, we certainly expect everyone to be out there supporting each other and doing the best they can from the sidelines as well as on the court.”
