Second Serve


Nick Kyrgios is one of the most explosive—and polarizing—players in the game.

What does Kyrgios consider his best quality?

Pella: Del Potro Best-Ever Argentine

"My best quality is I think I'm pretty funny," Kyrgios told Blair Henley in the video Q & A conducted at River Oaks for this week's U.S. Men's Clay Court Championship. "I think I make people laugh and I see the lighter side of things."

The Brisbane champion showed a sentimental side saying he's happiest "when I'm with my girlfriend."

The fourth-seeded Kyrgios cranked 21 aces in a 6-7 (2), 6-1, 6-2 victory over Bjorn Fratangelo to advance to a Houston quarterfinal clash of massive servers against former champion Ivo Karlovic.

The 24th-ranked Kyrgios also shared the secret to hitting a tweener: Don't think.

"I think everyone can hit a tweener," Kyrgios told Blair Henley. "It's really not that hard. You don't even think about it, for sure it's teachable."
