Can Nick Kyrgios build on Acapulco success?

4 March 2019

Controversial Australian, Nick Kyrgios surged back to reckoning with a stunning week in Acapulco, where he defeated Rafael Nadal, Stan Wawrinka, John Isner and Alexander Zverev to claim his fifth ATP title, but can he back up that sensational run with a solid showing at Indian Wells? Kyrgios reached the quarter finals in his most recent trip to Indian Wells in 2017, beating Zverev and Novak Djokovic along the way. Interestingly, that performance came after a strong week in Acapulco, where he had made the last four. Like he showed last week, he is very capable of stringing together big wins, and he must surely be considered a genuine dark horse for a maiden Masters 1000 title.
