Nick Kyrgios believes he is in a "happier place" after an upturn in his results.

Kyrgios has reached the semi-finals in Marseille, Acapulco and Miami in his recent tournaments, as well as winning two singles matches for Australia in the Davis Cup last weekend.

The 21-year-old endured a troubled 2016, and was booed in his homeland at January's Australian Open, but says he is beginning to turn his mindset around.

"I've become a bit more of a professional, and it's showing," he said.

Kyrgios appears to be turning around his public approval ratings too after receiving a far more positive reaction at the Davis Cup, in Brisbane, than at the Australian Open.

"I got booed off the court at the Australian Open, and I honestly don't know why," he added.

"They really embraced me this time. I got two big wins, and everyone likes to win."
