Injuries robbing Nick Kyrgios of chance to be the best, says rival
British number two Cameron Norrie believes Nick Kyrgios is being robbed of his chance to be a true force by injuries.
The pair met in the Atlanta Open this week, with Norrie winning after Kyrgios was forced to retire with a hip injury.
And he can’t help but wonder what might be for the Australian if he could only stay healthy.
“I really feel for the guy,” Norrie said. “He’s so talented. Who knows what he could do in tennis if he was healthy?”

The match was notable for some standard Kyrgios antics, with him imitating fellow ATP Tour stars’ serves early on.
“He was imitating Fed’s serve a little bit and Tsonga’s and Monfils,” added Norrie.
“It was good. But I can’t really laugh at all because I’m playing against him. I’m proud of myself how I managed to focus throughout the match,”
