Nick Kyrgios is having one of the most memorable seasons of his tennis career. Earlier this season, he won the Australian Open men’s doubles title. Partnering with compatriot and close friend, Thanasi Kokkinakis, the duo had a fairytale run at the tournament after entering the main draw as wildcards. In an all-Australian final, they defeated Matthew Ebden and Max Purcell to win their maiden Grand Slam title.

Subsequently, Kyrgios had a decent run at the tournaments in singles. He reached the quarterfinals and the fourth round in Indian Wells and Miami, respectively. Further, he had a semifinal exit in Houston, his only tournament on the clay court this season. Recently, a fan asked Kyrgios for a piece of advice.
