Washington performance has been great - Kyrgios

4th August 2019, 11:00 by James Mason

World number 52 Nick Kyrgios believes he is "doing the right things" after advancing into Sunday's Washington Open final.

Aussie star Kyrgios, who has yet to go past the quarter-final stage of a Grand Slam, remains one of the most controversial characters in the sport and his actions, both on-and-off the court, continue to divide opinion.

However, the 24-year-old has undoubted talent and managed to produce another fantastic performance to defeat top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-4 3-6 7-6 to book his spot in Sunday's Washington Open final.

The Canberra-born star will take on Daniil Medvedev for the title after the Russian dispatched German Peter Gojowczyk and Kyrgios says he is playing "one of the best tournament weeks of my life".

"This week has been awesome. I've really enjoyed myself," he was quoted as saying by BBC Sport. "I'm just doing the right things. I'm having the same routine every day. I'm trying to improve on a lot of little habits, and it's paying off.

"Five days in a row competing, I'm pretty happy with myself."
