BRISBANE, January 10, 2018
The morning after claiming his maiden ATP World Tour title on home soil at the Brisbane International, Nick Kyrgios met some Suncorp ballkids and addressed the media while clutching his new trophy.
On Sunday, the World No. 21 showed an impressive performance in his championship match, defeating Ryan Harrison 6-4, 6-2 to claim his fourth ATP World Tour trophy in 73 minutes.
“I felt good all week. I felt right at home,” Kyrgios told the crowd. “Every time I stepped out here you gave me such great support. I love playing in front of you guys even though sometimes it may not seem that way. But I do. I really appreciate it.”
He took away 250 ATP ranking points as well as $83,650 in prize money.
