Showtime! Nick’s 2022 ATP Rampage

By Scoop Malinowski

Thought it’s not quite on the level of Iga Swiatek’s dominant and record breaking 37-0 unbeaten streak, Nick Kyrgios has also been on a sensational rampage through the ATP this summer.

Kyrgios has a 27-7 singles match record in 2022 and has won fifteen out of sixteen singles matches, his only loss during the streak of excellence was a Wimbledon final defeat to Novak Djokovic in four sets. Since late June, Kyrgios has crushed Laszlo Djere, Paul Jubb, Filip Krajinovic, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Brandon Nakashima, Cristian Garin, Rafa Nadal (walkover), Marcos Giron, Tommy Paul, Reilly Opelka, Frances Tiafoe, Mikael Ymer, Yoshihito Nishioka, Sebastian Baez, Daniil Medvedev, Alex de Minaur. Nick just won a second set tiebreaker vs Hurkacz in Montreal to force a third set, to attempt to extend the streak of success.

In doubles. Kyrgios has won eight straight matches and titles in Atlanta and Washington DC. So if you’re keeping track, Nick is 23-1 in his last 24 ATP matches.

At age 27, it’s the best stretch of the unpredictable Australian’s ATP career which began in 2013.

How much longer will Nick’s ATP Showtime bonanza keep running? Nostradamus was contacted by email for this article to make a prediction but declined the challenge.

    Yea its a tad bit sad that after winning the second set tiebreaker with Hurkacz, I thought he looked pretty much tired and in some sort of abdominal discomfort there apart from that Hurkacz change of clothes break after that second set. In Nick’s own words he says he’s only human after all. But the people that he has slayed along the way (walkover Nadal too) deserve all credit to him and hopefully he recovers in time for Cincy!

    Cyndy, Kyrgios has played a ton of intense tennis this summer, he needs to conserve energy and his peak level for US Open. Not wise to drain himself all out winning these lesser tournaments. Blessing in disguise, his level is there. Important thing is to be fresh for New York.

    Yes I agree with you Scoop Malinowski that he should seriously consider conserving his energy in time for the US Open. Hopefully his team will do the needful to get him prepped up and ready.

    Cyndy, we already know Nick is playing top 5 in the world tennis maybe even top 3. Maybe he’s even playing the best right now. He does not need to win Montreal or Cincy to prove that.
