it seems like theres more hate for zverev than kyrgios these days which i find surprising.
feelings about kyrgios seem more polarized: you either love him or hate him..
for zverev here it seems most people hate him (or are they just the loudest)?
kyrgios is more interesting to watch because hes so unpredictable..
zverev is less exciting but more professional and better behaved (even tho
everyone here has a problem with his "arrogance").
im on the fence on this one, tho leaning toward zverev...
who will you choose?

I'm surprised kyrgios is winning so far.. for those voting for him can you explain why? his game and Twitter feed is more interesting for sure.. but is that enough? remember in the past kyrgios (along w tomic) has brought tanking to a whole new level

I'd rather watch Kyrgios (when he can be bothered to play well) but I'd take Zverev between the two on account of the fact that he doesn't entirely sacrifice the personality side of things the way that so many players around now do (and Nico gets so much credit for) yet has clearly developed more between the ears. I stress 'more' because he obviously still has to figure out the longer form of the game in a way that is pretty ridiculous, but for a 20 year old I'd say the boringness of his game, and fact that he's yet to make much of a mark at the majors are sacrifices I'm happy to concede as a fan in favour of the things he does right (multiple 1000s, some personality, not wilting in the face of guys like Federer and Djokovic, hiring Jez Green to work on his fitness right from the start so we know his problems over bo5 are at least not physical ones that can be easily worked on).

Does he seem/act arrogant? Yes, but there's nothing wrong with the confidence of youth. Listen to his words after he lost to Isner in Miami. The guy knows when to be humble, and say the right things and act the right way. If he had pouted his way through that ceremony I'd be inclined to jump on the hater train, but he showed his true character there.

Zverev easily. Z might be arrogant right now, but at least he's trying. Kyrgios is just a massive tool, and I don't see that changing any time soon.
Sure but when Kyrgios does show up he is usually more fun. Also his personality doesn’t put you to sleep. The work Zverev puts into tennis is nice and something I can appreaciate, but that should be a norm, not something that’s praiseworthy. Both are pretty horrible IMO.

I'll take Zverev as the lesser of two evils so to speak, anyway. Kyrgios's game can be more exciting in the sense that you never know what's coming next. He junkballs a fair bit and the serve is nice to watch, but I actually appreciate Zverev's tennis more on the whole. He knows how to win matches even if his game is a bit vanilla. I find Djokovic's game vanilla too, but I respect him for his career, and he has tons of fans. Kyrgios to this point only knows how to entertain crowds with tweeners and the like.

Pretty much agree with everything.

I prefer to watch Kyrgios when he decides to get serious(about once a year) but Zverev is obviously the player with the discipline needed to maximize his potential.

One is 21, has 8 titles (3 1000/1 500/4 500), 4 RUs (1 1000/2 500/1 250), has reached a high of #3 in the rankings, is currently #2 in the race to London, and is dedicated.

One is 23, has 4 titles (1 500/3 250), 3 RUs (1 1000/1 500/1 250), has reached a high of #13 in the rankings, is currently #35 in the race to London, and is not dedicated.

I'll have to flip a coin on this one.

At least he will speak up when he knows about girlfriends cheating.
Most likely, Donna wasn't even cheating on Stan. She hanged out with Thanasi when they were in juniors, years before she started her relationship with Stan, yet that was enough for Nick to say that stupid comment :rolleyes:
