'That'S Why I Think Nick Kyrgios Sells Out Every...', Says Top Coach

«That’s why I think Nick Kyrgios sells everything…», says the coach

nick kyrgios He has shown great vitality in 2022, finally managing to find a modicum of continuity and expressing his immense talent. In fact, the player from Canberra won the Australian Open in doubles, the ATP 500 in Washington and deservedly reached the Wimbledon final.

The Australian made a great ride on the Church Road grass, surrendering only in the last act against a formidable Novak Djokovic. There were high expectations placed on Nick at the beginning of 2023, but bad luck knocked on his door. Kyrgios had to miss the Australian Open with a knee injury, forcing him to undergo surgery.

Unless he relapses, the ‘Aussie’ tennis player should be able to participate in the Masters 1000 in Indian Wells and Miami. In the latest edition of the podcast hosted by Craig Shapiro, former ATP number 20 Dmitry Tursunov explained why Kyrgios is so beloved by the public.

Unlike most of his colleagues, Nick isn’t afraid of being himself or of public opinion.

Tursunov opens up about Kyrgios

«Players are afraid to show their personality, to say what they think, because nowadays anything you say can be misrepresented,» Tursunov said on The Craig Shapiro Tennis Podcast.

«If you say, ‘I played very well today,’ someone is going to say, ‘Oh, he sounds arrogant, he’s putting his opponent down.'» So players in general are just afraid to be themselves,» he added. «That’s why I think Nick Kyrgios sells every damn stadium he plays in because he hasn’t been emasculated enough.

He’s been fined enough, but he doesn’t care. He’s a very strong personality, ask me,» Tursunov added. «I mean, what’s the problem if a player is just throwing a middle finger at the crowd? It looks bad, the whole crowd is booing, but you just got the crowd emotionally involved,» Tursunov said.

John McEnroe recently stated that tennis needs more entertaining personalities like Nick Kyrgios. “You must be watching different tournaments than mine because I don’t see a lot of players crashing. And I know something about meltdowns, my past experience, and I’ve seen a couple of players, obviously Nick Kyrgios comes to mind collapsing pretty regularly, but for the most part, tennis players are incredibly well behaved, maybe too . he behaved well in my book,» said John McEnroe.

«I would like to see a bit more explosive temperament, see the emotions, wear it on your sleeve, there are a handful of people who see that, but I just saw someone win Wimbledon on the girl’s (Rybakina) side who doesn’t show any emotion, so I don’t know if any of us want to see that,» said the seven-time Grand Slam champion.
