‘I’m really excited,’ says Nick Kyrgios as he confirms date for ATP Tour return

Nick Kyrgios has confirmed his return to the ATP Tour by announcing he is going to play Mallorca, which starts June 20th.

The Australian stepped away from the ATP Tour entirely last year after the coronavirus outbreak, although he did return for the Australian Open series earlier this year.

That return was short-lived, however, with him once again withdrawing from competition, citing fears over potential quarantines.

Kyrgios has never had much love for the clay season either, which always added to the likelihood of him prolonging his self-exile.

However, it is a very different story with grass, and the prospect of Wimbledon has apparently reignited his desire to play.

“Super excited to be going to Mallorca,” he said. “Have never had the opportunity to play there before.

“I am really excited, haven’t played much tennis, grass is my favourite surface. So to be coming to Spain and Mallorca, I am super excited going there, see what I can do, and hopefully create some memories there.”

Despite it being Nick Kyrgios’ favourite surface, it is noteworthy that he has never actually won a title on grass.

The closest he has got is two semi-finals at Stuttgart and Queens, both in 2018, where he lost to Roger Federer and Marin Cilic respectively.
