Kyrgios 'prepared for comeback after ban'

By AFP, Sydney


Australia's Nick Kyrgios said Saturday he was ready for scrutiny at next month's Australian Open, as the volatile star prepares for his comeback after a playing ban.
The controversial 21-year-old said his forced hiatus from tennis-when a meltdown at the Shanghai Masters in October resulted in an initial eight-week suspension-has proved a blessing.
A condition of the ATP reducing the ban to three weeks meant Kyrgios has been seeing a sports psychologist to prepare him for the new tennis season.
