Nick Kyrgios has confirmed he intends to play the US Open this year despite recently stepping away from the Tour.
Kyrgios took almost all of 2020 off due to fears over the coronavirus pandemic and quarantine demands attached to international travel.
Nick Kyrgios to play again at US Open
He made a memorable comeback at the Australian Open in February, playing his part in two brilliant matches before losing to Dominic Thiem in the third round.
Since then, though, he has once again not played any tennis, and he seems unlikely to travel to Europe for the clay season.
But, he has confirmed on Instagram that he plans to make the trip to New York for the US Open later this year.
After his exit from the Australian Open, he spoke about how he is used to playing in front of packed stadiums and is unwilling to succumb to quarantine regulations, as “the time is not right.”
