After a close match with Daniil Medvedev at the finals of the Citi Open in Washington, Nick Kyrgios was the one who came out winning his season’s 2nd ATP Toru Title.
The Australian tennis player was average in his semifinals win over Stefanos Tsitsipas but he then followed up that win with an impressive game on his way to a 7-6 and 7-6 victory.
Both players did not have any breakpoints and the game came to the tie breaks for each set.
Medvedev seemed to be on his way to closing the first set as Kyrgios suffered from a back spasm. Still, the Australian was able to save the set despite looking really uncomfortable.
Kyrgios said after the win, “it is amazing as to where I was 6 months ago and some of the things that I had been doing. Now to have a response like this and the incredible support; it is all amazing.”
He further said, “I just wanted to clean myself and have healthier habits. It is still the beginning for my change but this tournament win shows that I am on right track. I feel like I have made great strides and now I am going to take it one day at a time. I hope that I can fully stay on this path.”
Kyrgios already won the title back in March in Acapulco and with this title win; he will now be once more in the world top 30 and also be a seeded in the US Open.
Somewhere else Dominic Thiem also won the dream title of Austrian open in his hometown of Kitzbuehel.

Another title win was Diego Schwartzman who defeated Taylor Fritz in the final of Los Cabos Open by 7-6 and 6-3 to win his career’s 3rd title.
