With a game capable of beating any player when on song, Nick Kyrgios says he has no plans to watch the Australian Open draw on Thursday night when his first-round opponent will be revealed.

"I don't think there has ever been a player like Bernard", Kyrgios said afterwards. "He had the ball on a string", McNamee said, predicting that he can be a risky floater in the Melbourne Park draw.

But the 22-year-old insists her immediate focus is on winning this week's Sydney International to complete the flawless Open build-up. "Ranking that stuff is temporary, I know I can go out there and trouble Nadal, Federer, Djokovic, I'm not anxious about going out there and losing 3 and 4 to BT".

A year ago, he could not even qualify for Melbourne Park, advising media after a loss that he could be found "counting my millions".
