Kyrgios likes playing on grass and was first known to the world after his heroics when he competed at Wimbledon for the first time. During that season, he beat Rafael Nadal. After that win, the Australian player was well recognized. 

Most of the players enjoy playing on the grass courts as it is the traditional tennis surface on which it was first played. Since the grass season is not too long, players like making the most of the little opportunities they have. 

Speaking about Nick’s season so far, he came back on Tour during the events in Australia earlier this season. He played his first Major at the Australian Open 2020 after being on the sidelines for nearly a year. He did entertain the crowd with his performances.
