Nick Kyrgios claims first ATP title in three years




Nick Kyrgios’ career-best season has continued with the Australian securing his first ATP Tour title in three years with a straight sets win in the final of the Citi Open in Washington.

Kyrgios took just 81 minutes to defeat Japan’s Yoshihito Nishioka 6-4 6-3, completing a tournament where he held serve 64 times without being broken.

It’s Kyrgios’ seventh ATP title and first since he won in Washington in 2019.

Kyrgios is also chasing a third doubles title of the year, having reached the final in Washington alongside American Jack Sock where they’ll face Ivan Dodig and Austin Krajicek in the decider.

Having reached the Wimbledon final, Kyrgios is seemingly on track to secure an all-important seeding for the US Open starting on August 29 in New York ahead of big events in Montreal and Cincinnati.
