Mover Of The Week: Nick Kyrgios


Nick Kyrgios gets the honors this week because he not only won the Abierto Mexicano title over the weekend, he defeated three top ten players en route to the title. The Australian is no stranger to beating the top guys. Once ranked as high as thirteen, Kyrgios is known for his lethal serve and forehand. If he is fully engaged, the Australian can beat anyone. The question always remains though, which Kyrgios will show up. Yes, he has been plagued by various injuries for such a young person; however, injury is not the only thing preventing him from being amongst the top ten. If he can keep his head in the game and avoid anymore injuries, look for Kyrgios to eventually join the top ten members.
