Wonderful point. Right before that point, I was going to say that nick shot selection was gung ho and very risky because he had no gas. had to delete that one after that point.Set it up perfectly in the rally trading cross court backhands. Didn't try to do what he normally does and try an early winner, but timed it nicely.
He has improved immensely in tennis maturity. He is still a 15 year old brat in behavioural terms.And breathe. never in doubt....
Could be the making of Nick in this country. TBH, since his probation, he has been matured a lot. Could have completely lost the plot a couple of times tonight but got back to the grind. Was he only broken once in those 5 sets? great serving
Kyrgios thrives on team mentality. Individually he struggles. Having Hewitt and de Minaur behind him has more him perhaps responsible if that make sense. Do it for the country not just himself. And it pays off.I'd hazard a guess the influence of de Minaur far outweighs anything that Hewitt (or anyone else) has had recently.
