Nick Kyrgios has already demonstrated that he can challenge the very best with his outstanding potential as he has already defeated multiple times all the big3s. However, it’s well known that he struggles to find continuity, and his emotions are giving him far too many problems.
Only this year, the Australian defaulted in Rome after going mad on court and he had a suspended 16-week ban after calling the ATP “corrupted.” (He later “apologized” for the “misunderstanding”).
Nick Kyrgios was once again not part of the nominations of the Newcombe medal even if he won the ATP500 in Acapulco and Washington. In addition, Nick is also the Australian no.2 on the ATP Tour. The last time that Kyrgios was nominated was in 2016.
Newcombe about Kyrgios
During a recent interview, John Newcombe revealed his thoughts about Nick Kyrgios to say:
“I thought it was great that Nick played in the Davis Cup but it’s a bit of a worry that he has recurring injuries, especially around where the muscles join the joints and that’s going to be an ongoing problem for him it seems.”
Given his suspended ban, Newcombe added that Kyrgios needs to “learn to zip it up” if he doesn’t want to have more punishment.
