The Wimbledon Championships was the event in which Nick Kyrgios was first revealed to the world. Not many can forget his match against two-time champion Rafael Nadal during the 2014 season. The youngster created headlines that season, knocking out the Spaniard in four sets.

Usually, prior to the third Grand Slam event in the calendar year, the Australian player would at the Queen’s Championships but this year he didn’t do so. He was facing a problem with his shoulder and was unable to execute a service to his liking. Nonetheless, it is a positive sign for the event to have the presence of a player of Kyrgios’ magnitude.
