Nick Kyrgios had probably the best week of his career in Acapulco.

The Australian started unseeded in Mexico and ranked only no.72 to have an incredible run and beat Andreas Seppi 6-3 7-5, Rafael Nadal 3-6 7-6 (2) 7-6 (6), Stan Wawrinka 7-5 6-7 (3) 6-4, John Isner 7-5 5-7 7-6 (7), and in the Sascha Zverev 6-3 6-4.

The final

Nick was extremely solid in the final to reduce his antics at the minimum. That helped a lot his focus and made the match more watchable.

The Australian won a weird 1st set as he conceded 2 or more points in each game he was serving, while Zverev has never dropped more than 1 point in each game he served with the notable exception of the 4th game when he was broken at 15. That was enough for Kyrgios to win the opening set 6-3.

Nick started extremely well the 2nd set to immediately break the German in the very first game (1-0) but he was broken soon after (1-1). As the set went on Kyrgios conquered the decisive break in the 5th game to win the match 6-3 6-4. The encounter ended after 90 minutes.

After this tournament, Kyrgios will go up 41 places to be ranked no.31 and he will be an extremely dangerous floater in Indian Wells (even if seeded) and probably in Miami.
