Ambitious Nick Kyrgios targeting grass court success this summer
Nick Kyrgios has targeted grass court success after winning his first ATP title in 14 months at the Mexican Open last week.
The Australian, who beat three top ten players including Rafael Nadal in Acapulco, has confirmed he will play at Queens in June – and he intends to win it.
“The courts are perfect, they suit my game and if I go well it will set me up perfectly for Wimbledon,” Kyrgios said.
“I know what I can do if I’m feeling good, and I want to show that on the grass at Queen’s and Wimbledon this year.
“The Fever-Tree Championships is a great event, one of my good mates Andy Murray won the title five times there, so that shows how important it is.”
British number one Kyle Edmund, new world number 10 Stefanos Tsitsipas, and defending champion Marin Cilic have all also signed up to play Queens 2019.
