The fiery Australian has been involved in a succession of controversial incidents during his turbulent career, but finally appears to be fulfilling his potential having claimed his first three ATP tour titles last year.
The 22-year-old won in Marseille in February to make his breakthrough and added titles in Atlanta and Tokyo later in the year to underline his undoubted talent.
He's even spent time with a sports psychologist, but now everyone waits to see if he can fulfil the vast potential and give Australia something to cheer about.
Kyrgios does have two career quarter-finals in the majors on his CV, including Wimbledon in 2014 and Melbourne in 2015. He's already made the quarter-finals in Indian Wells, and has drawn confidence from his wins over Novak Djokovic earlier in the season, as well as his three-set epic with Roger Federer in the Miami semi-finals.
Hip problems have hampered Kyrgios this year, and a withdrawal from Queen's was hardly ideal preparation for the Australian ahead of Wimbledon.
