Nick Kyrgios is trying to back up his fantastic week in Washington with another good run in the Rogers Cup in Montreal.
The Australian won the title in DC playing rather good tennis and with a bit fewer quirks that usual. Of course, the world no.27 couldn’t refrain from showing some of his bizarre behaviors like when he “served” the shoes to Stefanos Tsitsipas when they were clashing in the quarters. Nick also “invented” a new way to interact with the fans when he started asking them where to serve on match point. The good news is that most of his quirks were not offensive with the exception of when he threw a bottle to the chair umpire and when he also refused to shake hands with him, but that is small stuff compared to his past.
Kyrgios playing tennis table with kids
During last week in Washington, Nick was frequently seen playing ping pong also with kids. The Australian said that tennis table is good for him to warm-up, and of course also to relax a bit.
Nick commented, “I love playing ping-pong with kids and just playing ping-pong in general. I think that’s normal. I think if there are kids in the players’ lounge, I like playing ping-pong, so of course, I’m going to play ping-pong. It’s a good warm-up, too, get a little light sweat going.”
Nick Kyrgios (+119) is warming up for the #CitiOpen Final at 5 p.m. ET…
