NIck Kyrgios will remain relaxed going into his second round Montreal Masters showdown with world No. 1 Daniil Medvedev.
Both of the pair have been on a recent roll, each winning ATP titles at the weekend: Kyrgios in Washington, Medvedev in Los Cabos, Mexico.
Aussie Kyrgios, the Wimbledon finalist, has won his way into the second round while Medvedev will be starting from scratch after a bye.
He booked his spot on Tuesday with a 6-4, 6-4 mastery of Argentine Sebastian Baez.
Kyrgios has nothing to lose as he tries to extend his seven-match winning streak.
“I was really impressed with my performance today,” he said. “I knew it was going to be tough.
“I’m happy that I’m giving everyone what they want: Kyrgios v. Medvedev second round. See how it goes.”
The 27-year old whose ranking has risen fast to its current 37th, added:
“Physically and mentally I’m not as fresh as I would like… but he also came off a title in Los Cabos. He’s going to be feeling a little bit tired – I hope.
“But I’m going to do everything right. I’m going to get good rest, good physio, and I’m just going to give it my best shot.
“I’m going to go out there and have fun and try and play the best I can.
It’s not a bad result if you lose to Medvedev – most of the world does.”
