Nick Kyrgios has rattled off yet another doubles win after teaming up with American and friend Jack Sock at the Citi Open to defeat the French Open champs.

Only 24 hours after winning the Atlanta Open doubles title with fellow Aussie Thanasi Kokkinakis, Kyrgios was back on court in Washington DC.

HUGE: Aussie tennis stars in shock act of domination before US Open

The Aussie was partnering up with Laver Cup teammate Sock and the pair looked like a formidable doubles team after defeating grand slam champions Jean-Julier Roger and Marcelo Arevalo 6-4, 6-4.

Sock and Kyrgios fired down nine aces and converted 3/10 break points, which was enough to eliminate the No.3 seeds at the tournament.

In an incredible stat, Kyrgios has now won three doubles matches in three days across two different tournaments.

The enigmatic Aussie entertained viewers, but also continued his remarkable form after making the Wimbledon final.

Kyrgios has won five doubles matches in a row and will be a huge threat in the singles draw in Washington DC.

He is set to take on American Marcos Giron in the round of 64 at the Citi Open.

And in a brilliant gesture, Kyrgios remained behind on court and signed autographs and took pictures with fans after his late-night victory.

The Aussie had many fans excited for his link-up with Sock as he continues his push in the American harcourt season.

Alex de Minaur helps Aussies in Atlanta clean sweep

Before the Citi Open, Kyrgios and Kokkinakis helped complete a stunning clean sweep for Australia at the Atlanta Open after Alex de Minaur won the singles title.

De Minaur made it a second career title in Atlanta after beating American Jenson Brooksby in the final to continue his fine run of form in the lead-up to the US Open, starting at the end of this month.

The 23-year-old De Minaur won the Atlanta Open crown three years ago and triumphed over Brooksby 6-3, 6-3 to claim the sixth ATP Tour title of his career.

On the back of the victory, De Minaur is set to jump nine places in the world rankings to 21, which bodes well for the year's final major at Flushing Meadows.

When he won at Atlanta in 2019 he went on to reach the fourth round of the major, which begins at the end of August.

It's de Minaur's first title since last June in Eastbourne and his sixth ATP Tour title overall.
