Nick Kyrgios press conference

Nick Kyrgios has revealed that he went jet skiing just hours before he took on Alexander Zverev in the Mexican Open final.

After beating the likes of Rafael Nadal and Stan Wawrinka en route to reaching his first final in more than a year, Kyrgios came up against world No 3 in the Acapulco finale on Saturday.

He eased to a 6-3, 6-4 win over the German, but he admitted after the match that he needs to be more disciplined if he wants to reach the top 10 in the world.

“I went jet skiing at 5:30 p.m. (before playing Alexander Zverev in the final), so I don’t think that’s what a top 10 player would do,” he told ATPWorldTour.com.

He added: “I’m very lucky to be in this position. I need to be way more disciplined, way better professionally and do the right things. I don’t even have a coach, so maybe I start there.”
