Kyrgios backs Barty to 'pile up' Grand Slam wins

"Then I made squad and they said "you can do this, you're good", she said.

After sitting out of Roland Garros with a stomach bug, Kyrgios said he's now fully fit, but dismissed suggestions he may play Wimbledon doubles with close mate Andy Murray.

The only blip came when she dropped serve at 4-3 in the opening set but she reestablished her advantage straight away and the second set was particularly impressive, with Konta displaying her more rounded game to great effect.

A three-time Grand Slam victor, Murray has entered the doubles with Feliciano Lopez at Queen's Club in London this week for what will be his first taste of action since going under the knife in January.

"I think they are motivated to beat me in general".

"It felt like it was actually a nice progression of the rehab I've been doing and getting back onto the court and see how I feel on a match court playing doubles". When I hit with him a couple weeks ago, we spoke about it.

"I don't think I want to carry him for Wimbledon dubs ― I think he can find someone else to do that for him", the Australian said with a smile.

Brooks Koepka brought his A game to Pebble Beach , California, on Sunday, hoping it would be good enough to make history. The pin position on 12 meant par was a really good score and he was far from the only player to make a four there.

"Players on the WTA Tour have a hard time handling slice, because majority don't want to be inside the baseline". But I don't know if my body... if I happen to go deep at Wimbledon it's too tough to play doubles as well'. They're going to be tough to beat'.

Kyrgios will play Adrian Mannarino in a tricky opener, with the French left-hander fresh from success over Australia's Jordan Thompson in the final at Rosmalen, in the Netherlands, on Sunday. This is probably my favourite time of the year. Dude, your backhand's pretty average and let's be honest, you hit a ball over a net.

The last 16 Wimbledon titles have been won by members of tennis's "Big Four" and Stefanos Tsitsipas, the 20-year-old Greek tipped for big things, said before Queen's that the younger generation must begin to take more responsibility for overhauling the established order.

"There's no doubt that Barty can win Wimbledon - grass allows her to make use of all the shots and options that she has in her game".

Asked whether he is anxious that will give those players great motivation, Kyrgios slipped in a reference to his 2-0 head-to-head record against Djokovic.

"I think Australia has been waiting for that next player to win a Grand Slam and I think she was our best chance". Guys like that, they drive me insane.

[Verdasco] doesn't say hello, he thinks he's so good, he thinks he's God's gift.
