Nick Kyrgios is big in the Big Apple and Australias great hope is making no secret of his big US Open intentions either.People should know me well enough now to know I dont put a limit on what Im doing or set a specific target or goal,Kyrgios told AAP ahead of his first-round clash on Tuesday (Wednesday AEST) with Slovenian-born British No.2 Aljaz Bedene.Im going in confident, hungry and ready for a good, deep run. Kyrgioss optimism is not unfounded.The two-time grand slam quarter-finalist has arrived at Flushing Meadows with a career-high world ranking of 16th following a two-title haul already in 2016, including success on American hard courts in Atlanta this month.And unlike last year, when he arrived in New York to widespread condemnation and on official notice following his infamous sledging of Stan Wawrinka a fortnight earlier, Kyrgios is feeling comfortable again after being warmly greeted at the years final major.Feted in a 5000-word feature article in the New York Times magazine, which flashed a portrait of the 21-year-old on the cover under the headline: The Electric, Infuriating Nick Kyrgios, the article dubbed him the most entertaining player tennis has seen since John McEnroe.And quite possibly the most gifted since Roger Federer, it said.Author Michael Steinberger also quoted the temperamental talent as claiming he only planned on playing tennis until 27.Thats the absolute max, Kyrgios reportedly said.That leaves Kyrgios with five and a half years to leave his mark on the sport before he apparently pursues a professional basketball career.Many, including former Australian Davis Cup captain Wally Masur, are tipping Kyrgios to make a statement in New York over the coming fortnight.Seeded 14th, Kyrgios is eight months older than when Lleyton Hewitt, now his mentor and Davis Cup captain, netted his maiden grand slam crown at Flushing Meadows with a stunning straight-sets final triumph over Pete Sampras in 2001.Kyrgios is adamant hes ready to break through too in New York, on a surface he feels is tailor made to his explosive game.I had a good session on the new Grandstand (court) with Jack Sock and the court was pretty high-bouncing but fast, if that makes sense, he said.Its great conditions for holding serve, which is going to make me tough to beat.Kyrgios is among six Australians in first-round action on day two.Bernard Tomic, seeded 17th, plays Damir Dzumhur in his opener, while John Millman, fresh off his run to the semi-finals in Winston-Halem, takes on eighth seed Dominic Thiem.Leading the womens charge in her 13th Open campaign, former champion and 16th seed Samantha Stosur faces Camila Giorgi first up.Daria Gavrilova meets Lucie Safarova and rookie wildcard playoff winner Ellen Perez makes her grand slam debut against surprise Australian Open quarter-finalist Zhang Shaui.AUSSIES IN US OPEN ACTION ON TUESDAY (WEDNESDAY AEST)Mens singles, first round14-Nick Kyrgios v Aljaz Bedene (GBR)17-Bernard Tomic v Damir Dzumhur (BIH)John Millman v 8-Dominic Thiem (AUT)Womens singles, first round16-Samantha Stosur v Camila Giorgi (ITA)Daria Gavrilova v Lucie Safarova (CZE)Ellen Perez v Zhang Shaui (CHN) Clearance Jerseys . Pedro scored from a pass by Lionel Messi in the 33rd minute and added two more goals in the 47th and 72nd after Valdes saved his second penalty in four days following his stop in Wednesdays 4-0 over Ajax in the Champions League. Stitched Jerseys . Colin Wilson had two goals and an assist, and Mike Fisher scored a goal and helped set up two others in the Predators 6-4 victory over the Red Wings on Monday night. http://www.wholesalejerseyssupplycheap.com/ . Louis Blues. Shane Hnidy joins Brian Munz for the broadcast on TSN 1290 Radio at 7pm ct. Wholesale China Jerseys . White came in fourth place in the event. He was the two-time defending gold medallist. The gold medal went to Swiss snowboarder Iouri Podladtchikov. Supply Jerseys China . The players spoke Jan. 13 during a Major League Baseball Players Association conference call after Rodriguez sued the union and Major League Baseball to overturn an arbitrators decision suspending him for the 2014 season and post-season. The key decision for the Los Angeles Kings ahead of the expansion draft in June likely revolves around whether theyre going to protect three defensemen -- or whether they want to protect four.The difference between choosing either the 7-3-1 format (seven forwards, three defensemen and a goalie) or the 8-1 format (eight skaters and a goalie) essentially boils down, I suspect, to whether the Kings will protect Brayden McNabb.Its a given that Drew Doughty, Alec Martinez and Jake Muzzin will be protected.But is protecting McNabb, and going with the 8-1 format, the right call for the Kings? That would mean only getting to protect four forwards. Lets go that route for a moment. That means protecting Anze Kopitar (who has a no-movement clause), Jeff Carter, Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson, most likely, and then exposing Kyle Clifford, Marian Gaborik, Trevor Lewis, Dustin Brown, Jordan Nolan?et al.If the Kings go the 7-3-1 route, however, and expose McNabb, they can protect many of the forwards listed above.Despite the fact that Brown has played better this season, I think the Kings will end up exposing their former captain, who has five more years left on his deal past this season, at a $5.875 million cap hit. Now the question is whether the Vegas Golden Knights would see any cache in selecting a player who has captained two Stanley Cup champions. Dont forget, Vegas has to select a group of players that, overall, meets at least 60 percent of this seasons upper limit on the cap. So GM George McPhee and Co. cant strictly go cheap and young. They will need to take on a big salary or two.It might also make more sense for the Kings and Golden Knights to talk about a trade for Brown instead, so that L.A. retains some salary that way. ?Again, I dont believe the Kings have made an official decision on Browns future yet. Were just speculating, but thats the whole point of this exercise, right??And what of the oft-injured Gaborik? If Im Kings GM Dean Lombardi, I leave him exposed. Gaborik is still a good player. But -- givenn that hes 34 and has a history of injuries -- the fact that he has four more years on his deal at a $4.dddddddddddd875 million cap hit makes it easier to expose him.The Kings have younger players about whom they must make decisions too. Defenseman Derek Forbort and forward Michael Mersch, both 24, are each eligible for the expansion draft. The Kings have to either protect them or expose them.Swedish prospect Adrian Kempe, a 20-year-old forward, is exempt from the expansion draft, however.The Kings should have no issues meeting the criteria for the four players who top the exposure list: they have two goalies signed past this season in Jeff Zatkoff and Jack Campbell, whom?they can expose (theyre going to protect Jonathan Quick, obviously).?Matt Greene would be the defenseman they expose, and they have lots of options up front.Kopitar, by the way, is the only Kings player on the official must-protect list that the NHL sent to teams last month, and thats because he is indeed the only player on the team with a no-movement clause. Los Angeles has, as much as possible, resisted handing out no-movement clauses, and that policy will come in handy heading into the expansion draft because it affords the Kings nice flexibility.Dwight King is a pending unrestricted free agent, which means the Kings dont have to protect him because he cant be exposed in the expansion draft, although the Golden Knights do have a 48-hour window in which to speak to free agents before the expansion draft. Generally speaking, the smart play for teams -- if they have a good relationship with a pending unrestricted free agent -- is to wait until after the expansion draft to re-sign him so as to maximize their protective list spots.All in all, however, this decision looks like it should come down to what the Kings want to do with McNabb. Otherwise, Los Angeles is in fairly good shape in terms of the expansion draft. ' ' '
