Kyrgios: “If Nadal, Federer and Djokovic don’t come to Australia, it will be a disaster”

There is little more than two weeks until the start of the Australian Open in Melbourne (January 17-30) and there are many doubts that still surround the Australian Grand Slam, who still does not know if he will be able to count on the great rackets of the ATP circuit in the tournament. With the confirmed discharge of Roger Federer, that he is still recovering from his knee operation, the tournament hopes to confirm once and for all the presence of Rafa Nadal, that he has already returned to training after his positive in Covid-19 and that he hopes to be in the first Grand Slam of the year, and Novak Djokovic, who is still waiting to receive permission to play despite his opposition to vaccines.

On the hypothetical absence of the ‘Big Three’, Australian Nick Kyrgios wanted to pronounce in statements to the Sydney morning herald and The Age. Kyrgios says that the absence of all three from the Australian Open would be a serious blow to the tournament. “I honestly don’t know what Djokovic’s current situation is in relation to the measures against COVID or what he needs to play. I hope he has a happy Christmas and that he can play in the sport again as much as possible, because like I said before I think Federer, Nadal and Djokovic need to play. If none of the three are in Australia, it’s a disaster. It would be a highlight for fans and people who enjoy tennis. It is also a good opportunity for some of the young guys to show themselves and be noticed, but we need them because they are part of our sport. “

Kyrgios also spoke about how he is recovering from his knee discomfort, which has prevented him from competing in the final stretch of the season. “My knee is something that has slowed my career so far, so I decided to recover last year and I feel good. I have trained a lot and I have also been on the court a lot. I have also played a lot of basketball. I have also lived my life and doing what I want. I’ve also done a lot of work in the gym, and I think we should all do it to feel good and healthy. But yeah, I’m enjoying my tennis and I’ve also been with my best friends in Canberra. “

Finally the Australian regretted his loss in the ATP Cup after his fall in the ranking and hopes that Australia will play a great role in the tournament. “I would have liked to play the ATP Cup, of course, but I will be happy with the success of everyone in the Australian team. They have worked very hard, put in many hours and there are the results. I think we have a very strong team and that we will be able to do great things. “
