Kyrgios is yet to win a title this year, losing out to Roger
Federer in the quarter-finals at Indian Wells and the semi-finals at the Miami
Open. He also failed to make an impact at the Madrid Open and French Open.
The Australian has struggled with a recurring hip injury
that forced him out of the Italian Open in May and the Queen's Club
Championships earlier this month.
The world No 20 is, however, hopeful of winning his first
ever grand slam event.
"I honestly do think I can win it. Might need a bit of
luck - and everything to fall into place - but I do believe I can win,"
Kyrgios told reporters.
"Some would say I'm probably not in the best shape this
year... but I feel like if I'm serving well and I'm playing the right style of
tennis, the sky's the limit at Wimbledon."
Kyrgios is set to play his final exhibition match on Friday
and is the 20th-seed at the Wimbledon.
