It has been an exciting week in Washington for tennis fans. A week which ended on a high note for the loyal fans of the 27th ATP ranked Australian tennis star, Nick Kyrgios when he landed his sixth ATP title with a straight-set win against Daniil Medvedev.
A Constant Emotional Roller Coaster
During his career, Kyrgios has played 8 ATP Finals winning six of them. On the ATP ranks, he is the highest listed Australian player, and his talent and skills can be unrivalled, but it seems that Kyrgios is often a hot mess of emotions. Kyrgios doesn’t seem to play a motivated game if he is up against a lower-rated player and then usually end up losing the game. When competing against much better players, he often ends up defeating them. Earlier this year he had a terrible run at the Delray Beach Open only to make a brilliant come back at the Mexican Open again. At the Mexican Open, he played a much more focused game and was able to defeat not only Rafael Nadal but also Stan Wawrinka Alexander Zverev and John Isner and won the title.
Kyrgios Charm the Crowds
After his success in Washington, Kyrgios expressed his gratitude towards his loyal fans and people who keep on believing in him. He is keeping the crowds entertained with his fun personality on the court and during the Citi Open had their favour once again. He is the player who would talk to the masses and hand out fist pumps. As long as that he seems to be happy, he is delivering on a great game, and he wins. Unfortunately, Kyrgios also have another side on the court.
Kyrgios Categorized as Being Unprofessional
To the same degree as that he can be a brilliant player and some charming entertainment, Kyrgios also manages to be quite the opposite. He has been described as being unprofessional in his career due to hanging around in pubs before taking on Nadal the next day during Wimbledon, merely a month ago. In his latest dramatic episode and only a few days after his brilliance in Washington Kyrgios is at it again. At the Canadian Open, he had a temper fit concerning a white towel which he requested pre-match from the umpire.
He didn’t want the branded towel which was provided for him and started a tiff with the chair umpire which lasted most of the first set and then he lost his cool. The entire situation ended with him being slammed with a code violation based on obscenity and then a ball boy bringing him a white towel after 20 minutes of play. Kyrgios ended up losing the first round against 33rd ranked Kyle Edmund from Britain, in a mere 67 minutes and thus making the 65th ranked John Millman the only Australian player moving on to the next round.
