Nick Kyrgios is having one of his seasons as he keeps on hitting the headlines for “weird reasons.”

The Australian had an exciting run in Acapulco where he won the title after beating the likes of Rafael Nadal, Stan Wawrinka, John Isner, and Sacha Zverev “enjoying” his ongoing quarreling with the tennis fans.

After crashing out in Indian Wells, Nick reached the 4th round in Miami. The Australian got noticed for his erratic behavior in the 3rd round against Dusan Lajovic, not only for playing great and quirky tennis (a couple of underarm serves were part of it) but also for having a strange argument with a spectator that was eventually kicked out from the Stadium.

Is Nick Kyrgios bad for tennis?

Genie Bouchard made a rather straightforward post on Instagram defending the Australian saying: “How is he not good for the sport? He has ESPN talking about tennis.”

Genie and Nick have a great relationship, and they enjoyed their company when in 2015 they played mixed doubles when they couldn’t stop flirting on court.
