Kyrgios has also united with Jack Sock in Washington. The pair are set to take on Edouard Roger-Vasselin and Nicolas Mahut in the quarter-finals of the men’s doubles on Friday.
Speaking about linking up with Sock, who he has played with since 2015, he said: “I love playing with Jack because he is hands down the best player in the world, but at the same time I hate playing with him because there is so much pressure on me because he wins with absolutely anyone he plays with.
“But I got that monkey off my back in Lyon [in 2018], we got a title under the belt in Metz. I can tell my grandkids I got a title with the best doubles player in the world.”
