Nick Kyrgios says he’s no guarantee to play at the Australian Open in 2023.
As he prepares for his AO 2022 push, Kyrgios says his mind isn’t made up about playing tennis next year.
“I’m not Bernard Tomic, and I won’t give you some outrageous bulls***,” Kyrgios told the Herald Sun when asked how many AO campaigns he has left in him.
“I’ll be honest and say I’m going to soak up every moment of this AO. I don’t know what I’ll be doing in a year’s time.
“But that’s the journey,” Kyrgios said. “I know my personality, I know how unpredictable I feel, I know I live spontaneously.I don’t know what I’ll be doing in a year.”
He added: “People are learning to respect that’s just my personality. It might be unorthodox, and not professional in some people’s eyes to live like that as an athlete, but it’s just who I am. It’s a fun way to live. Spontaneous.
“At the end of my career, at the end of my life, no one can say I didn’t have fun, and I didn’t do it my way.”
Nick Kyrgios starts this year’s tournament at 7 pm AEDT/8 am GMT.
The Greek Australian, as always, will be expected to provide fireworks in his game against Britain’s Liam Broady, also on the John Cain Arena.
