Nick Kyrgios expected to be fit for Australian Open 2024

·

Tennis Australia CEO, Craig Tiley, has given insight into Nick Kyrgios’ return to the courts for the 2024 Australian Open.

Nine News shared that despite Kyrgios’ injury concerns, and not playing in the 2023 competition, he would provide his usual “entertainment” for the Australian Open in January.

“He loves playing here… in front of his crowd. He knows everyone wants him to play,” Tiley said.

The Australian Open CEO said Kyrgios’ injury was more serious than first portrayed.

”It’s just a matter of his health. He’s had a significant injury and in many cases for many athletes, it can be a career-ending injury,” Tiley said.

“He’s got over that and is in the process of still getting over that. I fully expect him to be here and be ready to play and provide us with the entertainment we want.”

Tiley said he spoke to Kyrgios about his return to the Australian Open courts.

“Nick’s interests are how he progresses over the next couple of months. We still (are) 95 days out, that’s a fair long time in someone’s preparation for the event… He wants to play, he made that very clear,” Tiley said.

The Australian Open will return on January 15, 2024.
