Nick Kyrgios: 'I don't feel old. I am maturing a lot'

Nick Kyrgios says he is feeling as good as ever in the lead-up to the Australian Open Nick Kyrgios says he is feeling as good as ever in the lead-up to the Australian Open

Kyrgios and the umpire exchanged words during the changeover after the Australian had taken the opening set for the loss of one game in just 28 minutes.

Taiwanese tennis player Lu Yen-hsun (盧彥勳) has withdrawn from the Australian Open to give a shoulder injury more time to recover, the tennis star confirmed on Sunday, adding that if treatment and rehabilitation go well he hopes to compete in March. That pressure will only increase as the 22-year-old progresses, but Kyrgios knows he can't look too far ahead with Viktor Troicki waiting in the next round. And with so numerous top nursing injuries, perhaps he's just trying to take the pressure off.

'I think past year there were periods where I was really good and really bad, ' he said.

I remember when I was, like, 19, I played in Grand Slams.

He said: "I feel for me there's pressure wherever I go". If I lose a match, at the end of the day it's a tennis match.

Another major singles champion from a year ago, U.S. Open victor Sloane Stephens, was set to begin play at the same time on Margaret Court Arena.

He battled a knee problem in Brisbane but says he is in good shape ahead of the first Grand Slam of the year.

Nadal pleased with impressive start to Australian Open campaign
Kyrgios received a code violation for swearing at a spectator who he felt was being too noisy but there were no alarms on court. In the match, the top seed coasted through the sets and was always in control.

The Swiss, seeded two, who starts his title defence against Aljaz Bedene, said he was feeling good and looking forward to the challenge. My physio flew in, so I've had him for the last two, three days. "I've had the luxury of getting treated in my room at my hotel", he said. "I definitely feel like I've been used to this sort of level for a long time now". I've been doing my practice, getting out of here and just relaxing. "So it's been good".

Kyrgios, who made the Australian Open quarterfinals in 2015, will begin his 2018 campaign against Brazil's Rogerio Dutra Silva.

"Hisense here is my favorite court here", he said.

The Brazilian stopped a losing run of seven straight games to get on the board in the second set to a roar from the festive crowd.

'I feel very confident in best-of-five matches.

Kyrgios was jeered by the home crowd past year when he lost a second-round match from two sets up against Italian Andreas Seppi and he won only two matches in grand slams in 2017.
