Nick Kyrgios has only competed at Stuttgart’s MercedesCup twice, but he has certainly put on a show for the German fans.
The Aussie has hit several jaw-dropping tweeners at the ATP 250, stunning Matteo Berrettini, Maximilian Marterer and Feliciano Lopez.
But Kyrgios’ most memorable Stuttgart moment came in 2018, when he reached the semi-finals. He hit an incredible forehand passing shot against Roger Federer in their final-set tie-break, but the Swiss star rallied for a 6-7(2), 6-2, 7-6(5) victory. It was a critical match for Federer, who clinched a return to No. 1 in the FedEx ATP Rankings by beating Kyrgios.
