Nick Kyrgios might just be the most popular tennis player right now

The guy is a roller coaster.
He is very fickle and unpredictable.
He is dangerous for any opponent but it is not enough to fight the great titles since the Australian has no consistency, without this it is not enough to be top 10.
He is another who needs a sports psychologist to channel his energy playing tennis and not on things that happen outside the court.
We will see if he takes advantage of the years of fullness that he has left.

You said it yourself. Those statements is why he is entertaining and has a place in tennis. No, he is not the guy that you look to see later in rounds and winning the biggest tourneys. He is the guy that will give you something odd and entertaining every match. He is not the guy you watch when you want a good tennis match (there are plenty others for that).

He hits the part of the spectrum that few can in tennis, and that is entertainment that is non tennis related.

Good for the game? Probably not.

Good for entertainment? Definitely.

So true. I tuned in for his semi and the final. I wouldn’t have bothered with the final had Kyrgios not been in it. Simple as that.

Let me put it this way, I'd rather watch Nick play Nadal in R3 than Nishikori play Federer (or any of the big 3 for that matter) in QF.
Nick's a clown , will never get to slam QFs probably but ya know...?

after Federer, Nadal, Murray, Djokovic, Nishikori, Tsitsipas, Wawrinka, Del Potro, Zverev, Thiem, Cilic and Opelka. He is great for tennis.

He's certainly compulsive viewing- even if, at times, it's car crash spectatating: you know you should look away... BUT...

Kyrgios is unfortunately their hope for other reasons too - badmouthing Fed's biggest opponents. After every such tirade of NK, they are gloating in the dark of their basements hoping that the world will see how Fed is great and others ain't.
At some point Kyrgios will get into trouble w Fed too. Say something stupid about him as well.
I'm sure it will happen, just wait for it. Its Kyrgios we are talking about here.

Fed fans clinging to Kyrgios for hope. Last year they clinged on Shapo. lol.
I have no idea how anyone can cling on to Shapo. But I do like Kyrgios and Tsitsi. Because they play interesting tennis and they play well against the best players, which has become a terrible thing on TT, while people scream for new players to do something :alien:

He wouldn't dare. Those 1 million bucks that he receives from Federer for a weekend of extensive clowning at the Laver Cup, are too easy and precious, even for a guy who "doesn't care" like Kyrgios. Lol

An attention seeking idiot is what I see lol Look at me, look at meeeeeee! haha so not sexy.
He MUST care a lot for tennis though, otherwise he wouldnt be wearing those tights and that on his arm all the time.

It would be nice, just to see how Fedfans are changing their tune :sneaky:
Maybe if Fed cuts him off from something, but I have serious doubts. It is nice collaboration right now, Nick with provocations tries to put Rafole out of comfort zone, in return he gets participation in Laver Cup, good $ and let's not forget the most important part - he gets away with his BS bcs he is protected by largest fanbase, Mr. GOAT himself (did he hurt a chair?) and now even the ATP. Everything looks peachy for Nick, he couldn't have all that even in his wildest dreams.

Some type of people.. you just know they will f things up somehow. And Kyrgios gonna do that. Wait and see. Something will happen. He will probably do something even Federer cant endorse and the saga ends.

It's not hard to imagine that his evil little work won't get any results. For that to happen both Rafa and Nole should beat NK in GS whenever they meet.

Yes of course!
But a bigger humiliation for him, and his attention seeking needs, would be Tsitsipas and maybe also Felix winning big and take all the attention. The younger squad. They are nicer people and also much better looking than Nick. Nick already got wrinkles like a 40 year old, he doesnt age well and he is only 24. Take a look yourself.
Rafa and Novak Kyrgios cant touch anyway when it comes to popularity and tennis.

He is artificially pumped up beyond any reason. Tsitsi and Felix (their view on NK btw is totally opposite one from another) deserve more success and attention.
You are right, Nick looks much much older now than 3-4 years ago. Maybe public opinion did affect him on his physical side.

Lol. You're just bitter that he trolls Novak consistently and doesn't bend over against Djobot. Even more bitter that he's a fantastic player when he's wired in and even you know it deep down. Even more bitter that Novak is 2-0 against him. :-D

Kyrgios cant stand younger players than him becoming more popular than him. Doesnt matter who it is. He will end up trash talking them eventually as well. Cause thats what he loves to do. The rat of tennis. Kind of looks like one too.

I can't even give big enough LOL to follow the amount of your bs you just said. :rolleyes:
What he does is not trolling, it is medical condition. He needs psychologist because he has big issues, yet you guys are pushing him even more to the edge by approving his behavior and asking for more.
He has beaten Novak in 2017, so did literally dozen of other guys who never before or after that year, managed to put themselves at tennis headlines.
I know well, both deep down and by facts presented from guy himself - Nick Kyrgios is just a clown who knows he can't earn enough money through tournaments. He is talented as much as any other guy on tour. If endless tweeners and underarm serve is a thing that determines how good is someone, then please reconstruct ATG list and put Mansour Bahrami, Gael Monfils, Henri Leconte and other jokers in. Even then NK wouldn't be on top.

He's pumped because he hates Djokodal and worships Federer. It's like he's the representative of all *******s.

Hehe, together we are strong. Novak and Rafa fans together are bigger than Federers. Also lots and lots of slams.
Lets unite and we will take them down :p :giggle:
Rafa and Novak will take care of the slams :love:

Kyrgios is the equivalent of Donald Trump, tennis finally got a filter for old people stuck in their ways Federer fans to really speak what they feel
