Well then that's the best we'll probably see of him there's a reason every other top player has a coach.He doesn't want a coach because that would mean he would have to train hard. Who would be a good coach for NK?
Some sports people take time to mature maybe.His summer has been ok but he was injured through the ATP cup for a match. His attitude has been good, he'll probably go off and play a few mickey mouse tournaments over in South America. The big test will be when he plays in America at Masters 1000 events. I'm not a fan and it is because he blows up unnecessarily. I don't understand how someone who has so much talent does not want to be No. 1 or win a GS or train hard. Plus not want a coach.
It's a good start.You are very negative towards kyrgios. How have you felt about his Australian summer? Do you think this turnaround in mentality is short term or could last for a while?
A top 5 or 10 rating is within his reach he currently beats the top ten on occasions plus after the Ausopen he could be top twenty .His aim should be to climb the rankings and get to the pointy end by avoiding the top players?
To be the best, he has to beat the best.
another Craig Tiley F-- up. maybe being a bit harsh on him.
So the company that laid the Australian Open courts this year is a Spanish company! Ebden also mentioned the balls are have no pop after a couple of games.another Craig Tiley F-- up. maybe being a bit harsh on him.
Our point of difference from the US Open was that we had the faster hard court. it allowed hard fast and aggressive tennis. there has been a lot of discussions that the balls are the clause. that the new hardcourt surface is roughing them up more quickly.
would love to see the actual speed rating of the courts. The ATP does them for all atp-1000 tournaments.
Always have been a problem, even when Hewitt was number 1 in 2002. He said as much too back then. It’s not really making the balls skid low but rather extra bounce.
He beat Medvedev in straight sets as well as can take it up to Zverev. That’s the top 5.A top 5 or 10 rating is within his reach he currently beats the top ten on occasions plus after the Ausopen he could be top twenty .
actually, they were perfect in the 2010's. Nice and fast. Federer success at this tournament and Nadal's lack of success(among other things)was based on that. And of course Novak. heck, we had Micha Zverev serve and volleying past Murray and into the quarters in 2017. It was awesomeAlways have been a problem, even when Hewitt was number 1 in 2002. He said as much too back then. It’s not really making the balls skid low but rather extra bounce.
I just think if he gets enough chances in GS he could win one but as you say needs to totally invest in it .He beat Medvedev in straight sets as well as can take it up to Zverev. That’s the top 5.
De Minaur is a bloody ferocious trainer and hard worker but lacks the firepower, yet. But put him and add Kyrgios you’d have a top 3 player.
He’s a big fan of basketball so should look for Kevin Durant for guidance in that hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard. Cannot be more truer then that to Nic. Has all the talent but needs that extra bit more. He’s comfortably Australians best men’s player
