Nick Kyrgios acknowledged that Novak Djokovic is a very difficult opponent to face, but suggested that Roger Federer is the hardest to beat in his eyes. In the Wimbledon final, Kyrgios performed very well against Djokovic, but failed in four sets, the Serbian 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6(3).
It was the third meeting between the two men and Djokovic’s first win over Kyrgios. Kyrgios has a positive record against Djokovic, but against Federer it’s a whole different story as Switzerland leads the head-to-head 6-1.
After the Wimbledon final, Kyrgios was asked if he was wrong that Djokovic was the toughest opponent he had ever faced. “I wouldn’t say that.
As I said before, I had a chance to win the game. He doesn’t give as much trouble as Federer sometimes does,” Kyrgios said, per Sportskeeda. “I think Federer, out of the other three guys, can make you feel really bad, like he’s suggesting you want to leave the club. to research.
He can make things feel very fast and the court very small. Nadal and Djokovic allow you to play a bit from the baseline and if you don’t play well then you fight,” Kyrgios said.
“But Federer can really pick you up and get you off the court very quickly” In 2017, Kyrgios beat Djokovic twice: in Acapulco and Indian Wells. Kyrgios won the first set of his Wimbledon final against Djokovic, but the Serb came from behind to win in four sets.
King Roger is ready for life after tennis
Roger Federer shed light on the difficulties of dealing with fame and fortune. “It’s easy when you’re sitting on your couch at home.
There are many celebrities on this planet, I am not the only one. I’m not the only good tennis player either. I’m nothing fancy, but it’s more difficult when you’re outdoors.
The press also gives a certain image and sometimes you have to meet expectations that are impossible to meet. They want you to be a superhero”, explained the Swiss player. Federer intends to pursue other professions after his tennis career.
“I don’t think I need tennis. I’m happy with the little things. When my son does something good, when my daughter comes home with a good mark. Tennis is part of my identity, but not my whole identity.
I want to be and stay delicate, put a lot of energy into business, but that is also possible outside of sport,” he said on the same subject.
