Aussie #NextGen star Nick Kyrgios made the most of his time at the Chengdu Open by visiting one of its main attractions on Saturday – the Cube Oceanarium.
Located just five minutes from the Sichuan International Tennis Centre, at The Seaside City Shopping Mall, the Cube Oceanarium is the largest ocean viewing window in the world. It houses over 33,000 ocean creatures across seven themed zones, including one exclusive to jellyfish, which showcase the biggest jellyfish in the world.
“I saw some sharks and stingrays and some jellyfish – those are probably the coolest things around,” said Kyrgios. “I spent some time filming some iguanas as well. I like going to aquariums. I’ve been to one in Paris as well but this is nicer. It’s good for me to get out of my hotel room and do stuff like this because it’s important to have a good balance.”
Despite falling to Kevin Anderson in his Chengdu opener, Kyrgios is in prime position to make a late-season run up the Emirates ATP Rankings. The World No. 15 will next appear at the Rakuten Japan Open Tennis Championships 2016, where he is seeded sixth.
