Sam Querrey, Taylor Fritz both win in straight sets at Shanghai Masters

The 23-year-old world number 38 was beaten 4-6 6-4 6-3 by American qualifier Bradley Klahn, ranked 104.

But he also sounded a note of caution.

Only through understanding work ethic and scheduling, creating the right team around himself, only then can you unlock the potential really.


"We don't really know and I don't think he really knows exactly what his potential is".

Nick Kyrgios of Australia reacts after a point against Bradley Klahn of the United States during their men's single round of 64 match at the Shanghai Masters October 8, 2018.

At last year's tournament, Kyrgios smashed two balls out of court in frustration and stormed off midway through his match with Steve Johnson in the first round.

"I think with Nick when he's fresh he plays great and it's about managing schedules as much as anything, so that he plays no more than three weeks in row and then he gets away from it", Woodbridge said.

Imf Warns Of 'somewhat' Greater Global Financial Risk
On Monday, it downgraded world growth forecasts for next year, blaming new trade barriers. This is still lower than the global economic growth of 3.7 percent.

The talented but erratic Kyrgios has played in Shanghai four times with his best showing being two second-round finishes.

"But there is still a process in place that he needs to do like any other player needs to go through in order to be successful", he added.

Coric will now face American qualifier Bradley Klahn, who sprung a surprise as he defeated Australia's Kyrgios 4-6 6-4 6-3.

In that game, in which the un-seeded German dismantled Kyrgios in just 48 minutes, Kyrgios appeared to walk off court before Zverev had completed his service game, leading to a chorus of boos.

He later sarcastically asked Dumusois "was that borderline?" after serving an ace. "I don't want to talk about that any more".

"I want to help you", chair umpire Mohamed Lahyani told Kyrgios, who went on to capture 19 of the next 25 games and set up a clash against Federer in NY. The chair umpire said that was enough - but it didn't end there as well.

With his low ranking it will take a major turnaround for Kyrgios to pick up a seeding for the Australian Open in January.
