While Kyrgios stays calm, Troicki is struggling to keep his emotions in check. After being broken at the start of the second set, the Serb whacks a ball into the skies, and receives a code violation for his troubles. Kyrgios leads 7-5, 2-0.
An ace down the middle from Kyrgios – his 10th point on the spin – seals the set, 7-5. There’s been no craziness so far, instead only composure. Perhaps he is finally growing up. The mercurial Australian has had a superb and serene start to 2018 – winning the Brisbane warmup – and he’s carried that into the early rounds here. Having not been past the second round of a grand slam in 2017, he could do some real damage at Melbourne Park if he stays fit and focused.
