Nick Kyrgios does not want to go unnoticed. The Australian tennis player was once again in the spotlight on the court, and not just because he got off to a winning start at the Washington tournament.
In his return to action after losing the Wimbledon final to Novak Djokovic, Kyrgios won comfortably against the American Marcos Giron 6-3, 6-2.
With the score at 6-3 and 5-2, the Australian had three match points.
Before serving, he turned to a fan in the stands and asked her where she wanted him to send the ball.
This is something he had done before in this tournament in 2019, when he lifted the trophy.
“I think it’s just a cool experience for someone that’s paid money to come watch you play and potentially to go home with that memory, if it’s a young kid or an older lady like today,” said Kyrgios.
“I wish I had that experience when I was watching tennis matches.”
Following his victory against Giron, Kyrgios will take on Tommy Paul in the second round of the Washington Open.
