So far, the 2022 season is going probably better than even Nick Kyrgios imagined before it started and he already lifted his first title in three years in Washington. Yet, it seemed that he can add another one in Montreal, but he was stopped by Hubert Hurkacz and also an injury about which he opened up at the press conference after the match.
"He's one of the best servers in the world and I had opportunities in the first set. Just running on fumes a bit towards the end. I think it's normal but I feel good, I feel confident," said Kyrgios. "Now I've got three or four days of rest until Cincinnati so I'm going to use that and really capitalize on rest and recovery."
"I've played good tennis. I've been on he road for nearly three months. I've been away from home, away from my mom, away from my dad. So I don't really care about no winning streak. As long as I'm not at home and I'm on the road I wanna be putting in good performances and make it worth while being here. I've got two more tournaments left before I can go home."
"My body hasn't been feeling great the last week. I was feeling my abdominal a bit before the match, my knees hurt. Obviously when you're playing and you stop playing for five to ten minutes, it doesn't help your body. My body was so stiff after that, I couldn't move properly, my abdominal was hurting. I'm not a machine, I'm human, my knees were sore, my back was sore, my abdominal was sore," concluded Nick Kyrgios.
