Nick Kyrgios will use cortisone to get through Australian Open beginning at Melbourne Park next Monday.
Kyrgios is battling a knee injury that plagued him during the recent Hopman Cup in Perth but lined up for Australia in Monday night’s fast4 tournament.
The 21-year old says that it won’t be an injection that’s administered to him.
“I’m doing everything I can for it. I have three more treatments left. Tonight is a bit of a test run to see how it’s feeling.” Kyrgios said ahead of the fast4 match.
“I’m going to lay it all on the line in Melbourne. Whether it hurts or not, I’m going to push it to the limit,”
Kyrgios crushed Rafael Nadal in the fast4 event.
