Nick Kyrgios feels excited to play Queen’s and Wimbledon. The Australian will try to break the Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal dominance.

The trio have won 53 Grand Slam titles over the last two decades.

“It will be tough”, admitted Kyrgios. “I think the way Novak is playing is pretty special. Obviously, Roger, he’s going to be tough to beat. Rafa is always a threat, as well. Who will win Wimbledon? I’m not thinking about that right now. You know, I’ve got a tough match tomorrow against a guy who won a title yesterday.

“I want to have a good week here, find my feet. But I definitely feel like I can do damage. I have had a lot of good wins on grass. Obviously made a quarter-final run when I was a little bit younger, but I think if the stars align, for sure I can do damage there.”

Kyrgios will go head to head with Adrian Mannarino. The mercurial Australian will play in his second tournament since the Rome Masters, where he was defaulted after throwing a chair and walking off the court in the second round against Casper Ruud.
