Nick Kyrgios says he is enjoying himself on court again, and that has shown in his recent play.
The 21-year-old Australian got his second straight win against No. 2 Novak Djokovic to reach the quarterfinals in Indian Wells, and also reached the semifinals of Acapulco and Marseille coming into the event. Girlfriend Ajla Tomljanovic, who had been sidelined for more than a year, also returned to competition in Acapulco.
"I think it's starting in practice, I guess, " he said. "Every time I go on the practice court, I try and be positive, try and have fun, not being too hard on myself.
"Some of that's obviously having my girlfriend back on tour. It's going to be awesome ... seeing her every couple of weeks. I'm just trying to stay happy and just try and enjoy my tennis a little bit."
