he doesnt love tennis!
and he is not talented enough like agassi to mask his shortcomings.
this punk is playing exclusively for the money.
he doesnt respect the sport, the fans, the media, sometimes his rivals, and as i said before his fear of being defeated makes people believe that he only loses because tank his matches when that is not true.
In addition to having serious emotional problems that brings deplorable scenes that we have all seen.
If he wants to continue playing tennis exclusively for money, go ahead, but he must understand that being a professional admits a certain respect to all the parties that make up this sport.
Great post! Also, Nick is a spoiled brat who needs to be banned for a few months. Perhaps, not making money will spark his desire to play well enough to make enough money to keep up his rich lifestyle.

Nick's opponent Radu Albot, didn't seem at all bothered by having a win over Nicky, the handshake was cordial and he even gave him the pat on the stomach thing--hey' a win's a win! Interesting that Nicky walking off the court didn't even have a proper tennis bag just an old duffel with no branding on it--Nick's mom looks after him and collects his dirty clothes and runs it down to a local laundromat--she says if he turned it in to the tournament player laundry service he would forget to fetch it for himself--his mom is a Malay princess so maybe that makes Nicky a "prince"--or a shaman. His father is a Greek house painter, you don't see him at the tournaments anymore--life in Oz must be a beach.

Which player doesn’t 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 ??

Great players win tournaments. How many has Nick won lately or in his entire career, so far?
Not many--any? But the Harlem Globetrotters ALWAYS beat the Washington Generals! Nicky should have a good long career on the celebrity pro-am circuit and BJK's team tennis party circuit.

It's embarrassing how few fans are in the stands for the indoor winter matches--but, there may be some fans watching on Tennis Channel--but without the fans there are no eyeballs to buy sponsors products "as seen on TV", and the sponsors will move on to sports with more fan appeal--like curling, corn-hole tossing, and team trampoline.

Seriously I don't get all the fuss about Kyrgios. Is it because this is an english speaking forum and he's aussie? He is just a guy who's got a really good serve and occasionally hits a couple of good shots out of a hundred. If any player with this "I don't care about tennis" attitude comes up and start blasting every few shots they are bounded to hit a few good ones, just like this guy does.

Just get past him.

And you're projecting. Federer is worth close to half a billion dollars now. He plays for one reason and one reason only: to possibly win another slam. Money has been extraneous for him for at least ten years. Same with Nadal and Djokovic. The excess these guys live with is mind boggling. The top three guys play for one reason: SLAMS. None can spend their money in 1,000 lifetimes.

Case in point: Novak's new home in Serbia:

"It will have five butlers, three chefs, two home helpers, two babysitters, two waiters and four security guards that will protect the property on a daily basis. "

He's goin on a walkabout
Good. Don’t come back. I’m sorry he doesn’t play pro baseball. A guy who disrespects the game this much in baseball gets drilled in the side once or twice a week until he shapes up or quits. Now that’s a game with Nick Kyrgios I would pay to see.

Disrespect? It's people hitting a small yellow ball back and forth with the hopes of being paid millions, lol. Get over it and complain about your politicians.

At this point, Nick Kyrgios is not a "great" professional player in terms of being ranked in the top 10, competing for Grand Slams, or making a run at the Hall of Fame. But so far, he has won 4 ATP tour singles titles, and was runner up in 3 other tournaments (including the Cincinnati Masters 1000). His last title in singles was at Brisbane last year, and he also won a doubles title in 2018. He's been ranked as high as #13, has been to two Grand Slam quarterfinals as a professional, and has wins over Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Murray, and Wawrinka. As a junior player, Kyrgios was the #1 player in the world, winning the Australian Open in singles, and the French Open and Wimbledon (twice) in doubles. Therefore, he has the talent to be a "great" player, up there with the likes of players like Zverev, who are potentially the next wave of "great" after the top guys retire. That is why it is so infuriating to see him seemingly waste his talent by not training seriously and blowing off matches like he doesn't care right now. However, as much as it seems dire at times, Kyrgios is just 23 years old, and still has another 10-12 years to do something amazing in his career (if he matures, dares to push himself, and doesn't become satisfied with the fact that he's a multimillionaire already). I'm a fan and find him entertaining - and I believe he has the ability to have a Safin-like or Ivanisevic-like career if he can pull himself together - and I don't worry to much about his antics right now.

He hides behind an exaggerated lack of effort on certain points/in certain matches to cloud the fact that, even if he applied himself, he’d never be a dominant player. Return game simply isn’t good enough.

He’s ranked 80 something. Kyrgios is ranked about 64

So it isn’t even really much of an upset
Well, until recently Kyrgios was ranked top 20, almost top 15....he deserves his current ranking though. Hope he slips even further down and and gets a reality check.
