Nick Kyrgios had a superb season this year as he played his first-ever grand slam final at Wimbledon. However, World No.22 is set to play the two Middle East exhibition events in December as he looks to fortify himself ahead of the 2023 season.
The World Tennis League is one of two events in which Nick Kyrgios is picked to show his tennis prowess next month. Moreover, he is there playing for team Eagles alongside WTA No.4 Caroline Garcia, 2019 US Open Champion Bianca Andreescu, Indian Rohan Bopanna, and Italian Andreas Seppi.
The non-official event will be held from 19-24 December 2022 on the hard court at the Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai, UAE. A list of four teams and their 18 players is part of the inaugural edition of a non-ATP/WTA tour contest.
“I Cannot Wait To Be Part of the WTL”, says Kyrgios
Meanwhile, Nick Kyrgios expressed his eagerness to compete at the World Tennis League via his Instagram video on Friday.
“I cannot wait to be part of the WTL. As you all know, I thrive and have so much fun in a team environment. I can’t wait to meet my team and see what we can accomplish during that week”, the Australian said.
Furthermore, the 27-year-old explained the highlights of the mixed-gender tennis tournament. “An event like this for the fans is so important for fan interactions and the ability to see female and male athletes come together is really really cool,” Nick added.Embed from Getty Images

The two-time Citi Open champion further stated, “The team for me that has my eye is definitely Novak and The Falcons. I can’t wait to come up against that team and I guarantee an Eagle win But for now, all ties.”
