Kyrgois says he'll quit if he wins US Open

The ever-controversial Nick Kyrgios has tweeted he'll leave tennis if he wins this year's US Open.

On the eve of his opening-round match against Great Britain's Aljaz Bedene, Kyrgios, the 14th seed, opened up his social media account to a public Q and A.

The 21-year-old Australian, who has previously flagged his desire to leave the sport before he turns 27, then said he'll walk away should he win the tournament.

"If I won the US open now u (sic) would never see me again," the 21-year-old replied to a fan.

Another user's question drew a presumably tongue-in-cheek response.

When asked who he would pay money to watch play, Kyrgios tweeted "Monfils, me" making reference to world No.12 Gael Monfils.

Krygios's previous best result at Flushing Meadows is the third round in 2014.

He's placed in the same half of the draw as previous champion Andy Murray and will meet Swiss third seed Stan Wawrinka in the fourth round, should the pair win through.
