Kyrgios in spat with fans

#4
He is earning his paycheck. He is an entertainer, and good at it.

There is no issue with him whatsover, everything is exactly as it should be. The issue is any person who still does not/cannot comprehend the simple facts stated in first two sentences of this post, not even after reading them.

Hence, these no content threads. They are the cost of everything turned into entertainment.

The only thing that can save his career is drawing one of the Big 3 at Wimbledon.
They need to bring back Borg, McEnroe, Edberg, Becker and Sampras to help give Kyrgios the motivation he needs.

After beating those Guys he beats Djokovic (2-0 h2h) in the semis to set up an epic final against peak Fedr.

Motivated Kyrgios is unstoppable :laughing:

I'm sure ALL the Aussies have had a shot at 'MOTIVATING" Nick, he's just a product of a being spoiled junior fawned over by the 3.5's at the club. He's never experienced "real life"--when the tour promoters tire of his primadonna antics, and his appearance money dries up, the only thing he'll be capable of doing is working at a carwash--he doesn't have enough organizational ability to put together clinics at a public court to make $200 a day--the ladies would be stepping on balls all morning long and suing him--he could marry a series of rich trust fund/alimony divorcees, and hang out at the club bar--or he could hang out with OJ in Vegas, as OJ waits to reunite with his daughter in Florida--someone should tell OJ Greyhound doesn't go there anymore.

Don't think he would last at the carwash-would probably only clean half the vehicle & then whine & stomp off for a break. But in all seriousness why the hell would people like him & Tomic care? They have millions in prize money for doing nothing of note & many more millions in endorsements-they can live like kings for the rest of their life-Tennis had gone too far in rewarding mediocrity. Connors as one example busted his ass to make it on the tour when there wasn't easy money & made 8.6 million from prize money over a 25 year career winning eight slams, being runner up in seven & many semis & quarters. Kyrigos already has 6.6 million from 5/6 years on the tour & having made two slam quarters.

Quote from David Goggins (if you don’t know his story, google him):

“Some of us don’t even want to be put into a position to win... Why? Because failing is too much to handle. So why even try. Because if I don’t even try, I can never fail.”

Nick Kyrgios in a nutshell.

Some poster in the other thread about him answered me the following: Which player does not play "exclusively for the money" ??? Respect for the fans !!!

It's always about money, everything is. You think professional players dedicate themselves training everyday and flying around the world to please fans ??

Well, he ignores that if money is the only motivation of this individual to continue with this farce, time and the imponderables of life put him and any of us in the place we deserve.
if there is no passion, love, dedication, discipline and respect for the work we do, sooner or later our internal demons will appear and whether we like it or not, we will be exposed to the great gaze of everyone, our employers or in this case, the public who pay to see a good show.

If the commitment is not present on our part, it is impossible for us to avoid feeling that we have wasted our time on something that did not make us happy.
In these times, ethics continues to be underestimated, encompassing a number of virtues where it makes it possible to give meaning to our existence and avoid nihilism.

Without rebellion and suffering it is not possible to understand life and without empathy it is impossible to understand others and that only leads to alienation.
Freedom consists of choosing and being responsible for our actions, without spirit of overcoming we will be foreigners of ourselves.
Alienation leads to isolation and that feeling of abandonment endangers the meaning of our objectives.
Dreams are unfading like love, culture or traditions are and that is what people like Kyrgios must understand.

Just what we need, another Kyrgios thread.

Whats the current psychoanalysis of the great talents mindset?

It is sad how uncomfortable he is with himself and how much he fears being seen as a failure when trying. He projects that I-don't-care attitude so hard, but you can see through. He'll give you flashes of him trying, but fails to give the full effort so he can always say how good he is and not be proven wrong. Hell, he rests on EVERYONE saying what a great talent he is without having every proved it, save some highlight shots. If he was REALLY that good, he's be winning and fully invested in exploiting those talents and not squandering them by avoiding trying.

Yeah, people need to stop encouraging him and just palinly call him on being lazy.

For many years I had thought Nalbandian and Safin wasted their talent but then Kyrgios appeared lol
Not winning is not necessarily a waste of talent. There are people trying very hard not to allow them to win, you know. It's the way they lose. Krygios loses because he doesn't try. I don't think either Safin or Nalbandian didn't try.

Monfils went through that phase but seems to have turned the corner in the maturation process--maybe Nicky should partner up with Gael and Gael could get him through. Nicky might have millions of $$$ now but unless someone is keeping tight control over his finances he will blow right through his millions--a couple of the latest Ferraris and he's in debt.

LOL basically summed up my thoughts perfectly. Of course we are here to discuss but Nick is rich, at the top of his sport and doing well. Accept that is who he is.

Possibly. Even if there is, it's really none of anybody's business.

Hmm.

He is earning his paycheck.
Yes.

He is an entertainer, and good at it.
No. He's really not that interesting.

Hence, these no content threads.
Yes. You have a point, but you've got the wrong route. Sports people's general well-being or whatever issues they might have shouldn't really interest anyone. And if people should take an interest it doesn't give anyone the right to preach what kind of life they think the player should be leading. If Kyrigos is fine, then he's fine.

Yes, you're absolutely right! I vote we shut the forum down, except, to discuss only the relative merits of various over-wraps.

What would YOU like to talk about? How's the weather where you are? When are they scheduled to wash your courts?

I didn't say that at all, or say "let's lock this thread and go home". Everyone can discuss whatever they like. I may however make a judgement on whether discussing (?) Kyrgios' or any player's mental well-being (in an extremely vague and hypothetical manner) is something worthwhile. I don't think it is.

What would YOU like to talk about?
Tennis. Plenty of that going around in this forum.

Alright--fair enough--give us some topics you would like to discuss and will be creating threads for--"TENNIS" is extremely vague. For example why don't you start a thread titled "TENNIS" and let's see how many pages it goes.
