‘Nick Kyrgios will a Grand Slam, and if he wins one, he’ll win five – he’s that good’
Nick Kyrgios will win nt just one Grand Slam but many – if he can get his head together.
That’s the view of former world number one and Eurosport tennis expert Mats Wilander, who has likened the Australian to three-time Grand Slam winner Stan Wawrinka.
Kyrgios has struggled with his discipline over the year, and never been further than the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam, but Wilander says he has the talent and physical gifts to do much better.
“Wawrinka is what I am really thinking when I see Kyrgios,” said Wilander.
“As a physical, genetic specimen, he is a monster. When he is on the court and he runs, he flies. And he has got a massive arm. So you have to put him in the gym.
“I believe with Wawrinka it was the same thing – he was always like he is [as a talent] but he was never fit enough [until he started working with Magnus Norman in 2013].
“I think Nick Kyrgios will win a major. And if he wins one, he will win two. And then he wins five, because he is that good.”
