Daily Mix—An inspired Kyrgios could do damage in Indian Wells

The Aussie is coming in off a great week in Acapulco, and may face Djokovic early.

INDIAN WELLS, Calif.—Nick Kyrgios is a hot topic most days, but especially now going into the BNP Paribas Open after winning Acapulco.

Inspired by the challenge of facing top players, Kyrgios scored wins over Rafael Nadal, Stan Wawrinka, John Isner and Alexander Zverev. This week should see a similarly motivated Kyrgios as he'll earn a showdown with top seed Novak Djokovic if he can get past Philipp Kohlschreiber on Saturday.
