Nick Kyrgios Australian Open 2022

Nick Kyrgios stuns World no.1 Daniil Medvedev in Montreal

Nick Kyrgios has scored another hugely impressive win in this stand out 2022 season as the Montreal top seed falls in his first match

Australian Nick Kyrgios is fast becoming the man that no-one wants to play as his tally of big wins increases after a 6-7, 6-4, 6-2 demolition job on Russia’s Daniil Medvedev.

Medvedev will be disappointed as he;’s had few chances to prepare in tournaments for his defend his his 2021 US Open title and this tournament in Montreal was one of those.

Kyrgios looked to be struggling after losing his way in a one sided first set tie break but the big serving Wimbledon finalist cleverly employed serve and volley tactics hat proved too much for Medvedev in the next 2 sets

Kyrgios now faces fellow Aussie Alex de Minaur in round three

Kyrgios signed off by wishing the best to his mother who is currently ill in hospital back in Australian and has obviously been on her son’s mind.

Kyrgios even managed a succesful underarm serve point with Medvedev at times looking like he didn’t have an answer or a plan to deal with such an in form unpredictable opponent. He’ll need to get his game back on top form if he’s to be in with a chance of repeating his heroics from the US open last year where he stopped Novak Djokovic from claiming the calendar Slam in the final.
