I do question his character. Yet, curiously, feel NO shame whatsoever. I suspect that I've pushed a lot more cars that Nick has... and I'm less of a jerk on the court than he is to boot. Where are my accolades? Shame on all of you who have not yet sung my praises.

One act of kindness does not a saint make.

Pics or it didn't happen. Nick has a pic.

:whistle:

Some of us do not use FB and Twitter. And we do not feel compelled to share/document what we had for lunch or every act of kindness we may have performed.

FYI: In the 20th century, we were not carrying around cameras in our pockets everywhere we went.
So you haven't pushed a car in atleast 20 years...

Btw I'm an 80's baby so I remember rotary phones etc.

Nope. I just don't make a habit of bragging about it or documenting it. Nevertheless, even tho I've been disabled for nearly 12 years (since my mid 50s), I've still managed to push a couple of vehicles.

It's just a bit of fun from my side. He has his detractors which is understandable, but I've always looked over it somehow. Something tells me he's an ok guy. Just my opinion.

I've pushed quite a few in my day. Pulled them as well. I always have a pair of jumper cables, so I end up jumping people off pretty often too.

Expected the 'antihype' reaction to this that the thread is showing. I suppose people feel the need to balance out any exaggeration of its value, which applies to most things in the world, really. In actuality, it was a nice thing to do, regardless of how many people might do this sort of thing for others and not document it. Besides, Nick's attitude to others gets a bad rep so its good to see some counterexamples, and I assume this was the primary reason for this thread.

That's really all it is.

A guy that beats the Bull and pisses him off in the process to the extent Nick does, won the Wimbledon match between them, and shows the showmanship when he is on, is a good bean in my book. Pushing cars does nothing for his tennis, but it does show a compassion for others.

:cool:
I think he enjoys interacting with people as long as they aren't hostile with him first. He probably enjoys the hostile ones too truth be known.

He just refuses to be an ultimate professional, and while he can certainly achieve more (and I hope that he will), I don't blame him for not being the next ATG. Not everyone is made of the same stuff, and that is OK too. As long as he is happy with himself (that is where I find room for most improvement), and doesn't do illegal things he is fine. He is a typical young man from the new generation.

:cool:

Just this single act is more good than Rios ever did in his life. I actually say this as a fan of his.

Rios was probably the cause of the car being broken down, poured sugar in the gas tank or something.
Yes. Or something. You're in. I mean urine. Marcelo Rios used urine to disable that car.

I dislike and also enjoy both rios and nick. Something in common there. Mentally off dudes with remarkable feel for the ball. The good people at Yonex must be so proud.

Well, if it did happen it's a good thing. Somehow I see it as a show off. Nick is too much passive aggressive. I don't like it. He wants to be loved but he just can't get it right. (n). Nick needs to see the big picture. Forget about the media and focus on your tennis skills.

That was his best fitness effort to date.
Well done, NK. In no way was that story planted. Totally natural. Love the esoteric symbolism on the hoodie, too.
Does Nick look like the type who cares about what people think of him at all, let alone enough to "plant" a story?

Nick just like any other 20 yr old these days. Hes a good person overall and normal. Wanting to play tennis 6 hours a day and travel 11 months a year is not normal, thats why you gotta respect those tour veterans so much. Nick is just like any other kid. No reason to bash

Wait why is NK getting flak for the picture looks to me like it was the two people flaunting the pic not NK. NK is actually a funny dude with an interesting albeit polarizing personality. I personally find his Facebook page absolutely hilarious and love that he actually replies to comments left on it.

Lieutenant Kyrgios spies some green with envy participants.
