Kyrgios unsure about future after Australian Open defeat – “I don’t plan things”

Tennis player Nick Kyrgios stated that he was unsure about his future after his Australian Open defeat, saying that he only bothers himself with the present.

Kyrgios lost to World No. 2 Daniil Medvedev on Thursday. He was beaten 7-6 (7-1) 6-4 4-6 6-2 and is in danger of suffering another major rank drop.

The Australian’s fall from grace has been concerning to see. His one-time ranking of No. 13 seems a long way away, and now he is projected to fall to 124 in the world rankings.

With criticism surrounding his form and his general approach towards tennis, Kyrgios revealed that he was unsure about his future, saying that he was taking it one day at a time.

“Look, I’m not looking forward at all,” he said, as quoted by the West Australian.

“I’m going to enjoy tonight. I don’t plan things, I don’t really care what’s going on in a month’s time.

“We all know people can doubt me as much as they want but they know I’m going to turn up and show up for matches like this. That’s why the crowd is the way it is, that’s why the tickets are the way they are, that’s why the views are the way they are. It all speaks for itself,” he said.


“No matter how little I train or how much I play, I’ll always lift for matches like this,” he continued.

“I’m not going to shy away from it. Obviously I’m not happy with drawing Daniil Medvedev second round because my ranking slipped.

“If I play 95 per cent of people tonight on that court I think I win, to be honest with you. But that’s just the way it is. I’m proud. I’m just proud of the way I carried myself. I fought. I gave a good show, and that’s it.

“I’m not thinking about tournaments and my next tournaments or anything like that,” he concluded.
