Nick Kyrgios and Amanda Anisimova have a fantastic relationship that in the recent past prompted also some rumors about a sentimental involvement. The American has being going through an extremely complicated moment in her young life after the sudden death of her beloved father Konstantinov that happened right before the past US Open.
The departure of Amanda’s dad happened also in a very important moment as the teenager was in a situation when her career was meant to “blossom” and the strong pain of losing such a close person is obviously “distracting.”
Unfortunately, Amanda stumbled at the first hurdle at the Australian Open and an insensitive journalist during the press conference that followed her match asked her if she was still “unsettled” by his father’s death. Amanda looked totally upset to reply: “do we really have to talk about this so fast after a match?” Then she burst into tears.
Nick Kyrgios commented: “This makes me so mad. Have a heart and please feel, it’s not fair. Keep your head up Amanda”
