Sam Stosur believes Kyrgios will shine at the United Cup - "It's no secret Nick loves being in a team and team competition"

The start of the 2023 season will be an interesting one for Australian fans as it will begin at the United Cup in three different Australian cities.

As a host nation, Australia also has a team in the competition that is led by Nick Kyrgios from the ATP Tour and Ajla Tomljanovic from the WTA Tour. Sam Stosur and and Lleyton Hewitt are the captains and they are both hopping for a big success at the inaugural event.

“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.”
