Food poisoned Kyrgios defeated Rafa

I just had food poisoning and was throwing up non-stop, crippled by stomach cramps and crapping blood whilst Nick was able to beat an all time great in 3 gruelling sets. I highly doubt he had food poisoning....

This guy has a multitude excuses for his lackadaisical, disengaged behavior/persona. He's had food poisoning each of the last 3 years at least once each year... seriously!??! Perhaps he needs to ask the question as to why he keeps getting "food poisoning".

Maybe because he's in a foreign country eating food he is not accustomed to? Also, no offense intended, but Mexico often has suboptimal cleanliness standards (no clue about Acapulco). More anecdotal than anything, I heard that one of my professors in med school collected samples from reasonably clean looking restaurants throughout Mexico (from plates, cutlery, condiments), and more than half of the samples grew common bacteria that cause gastroenteritis. I'm sure the US (where I am) has its fair share of substandard restaurants. Even just eating food that your not accustomed to can make you feel sick. Just not everyone reports it. I'm sure many players on tour have this issue, just not always brought to light.

I'm in the U.S. as well and I travel a lot both domestically and internationally. And yes..my first time going through the gauntlet of international travel from city to city gave me a minor case of food illness. Fast forward to my having traveled enough to have LEARNED what to eat, where to eat, who's to ask about food choices and what prescription drugs to carry with me to help give relief so I can I push on with my job duties and I'm good. Kyrgios is in a different place almost weekly and he's been a pro for how many years now? He had food poisoning at Indian Wells 2017 (hardly the wilderness of Acapulco) prior to facing Federer and last year I recall him talking about having a bad meal,that had him not feeling well, during another U.S. tournament.

You can't blame food poisoning for behavior that is clearly his modus operandi. Even he knows it.
