Nick Kyrgios completed an amazing week in Acapulco, reaching the most important title in his career so far, winning Alexander Zverev with 6-3, 6-4 in the big final.
In the second round he had managed to exclude Rafael Nadal, while in the next two games before the final he won Stan Wawrinka and John Isner respectively.
In his statements after the game, Kyrgios said among others:
“The crowd created the atmosphere every day. It was the best atmosphere I’ve ever played. They were watching me and I still enjoyed playing and being here. They created feelings, memories, the tournament itself. It was amazing.”
While continuing, he said, “I hope this was an example for people who suffer and go through some situations they do not believe they can escape. If I can do it, you can do it. I was really bad lately and I did not know what to do, but you may have such a week and things can change.”
