- Australia's Nick Kyrgios said Tuesday he was still looking to hire a coach after his spectacular Grand Slam meltdown in Melbourne, admitting it was "something I've got to do moving forward". The tempermental 21-year-old -- who plays in the Davis Cup World Group tie against the Czech Republic beginning on Friday -- acknowledged after his second-round Australian Open defeat that he needed coaching. Kyrgios said he had "a couple" of candidates in mind, without naming anyone, but added that the right person needed to have Kyrgios's "best interests at heart". "I've got to (world number) 13 in the world without one, so hopefully with a coach I can improve my game and get there."
