Surprised he didn’t have a dig at Ebden for associating himself with Margaret Court and her church tbh.

The Happy Gilmore gimmick will continue to net in $$$ for him. He may not win a Grand Slam, but he'll set himself up financially for life. The trade off will be having very few friends on the circuit.

Love the guy but he has no self-awareness whatsoever.

His comments about Barty were ridiculous and his carry on about the ladies watching out for Kokkinakis was tacky.

Did you watch the whole post match presser or did you just read an inaccurate headline ? The two K's were asked a question whether their style of doubles is good if they were inciting the crowd during matches - Kyrgios answered that their style of play resulted in full attendances at their matches, greater media interest in doubles as evidenced by excellent rating on TV, and even having radio cover their matches - Of course if you choose to read and believe an article which is backed up by inflammatory headlines and filled with non-sensical tweets then it's your prerogative - I'll add that the two K's were complimentary towards Barty in their presser and even recalled them travelling around Australia and overseas as juniors.

I watched the whole presser.

My opinion remains unchanged. Yes, he was complimentary. No, he did not need to big himself up with his erroneous claims about why the crowds were there. He did not need to mention Barty’s family.

Sometimes he just needs to shut up.

Great come back, Purcell was talking sh*t pre and post game, didn’t back it up what do you expect

Did you watch the game?

I'd argue Purcell and KK were the two best players on the court.

Not Max's fault his partner was worse than KK's.


Nick is really tone deaf, his partner carried him in that final.

exactly, he wants to ensure all the attention is on him.

I don't know why Kyrgios keeps attacking Purcell. He should move on from that argument.

Purcell played great but Edben wasn't strong and consistent enough in the final

the talk is Kyrgios may avoid the French and Wimbledon but play in the US Open.

Id love to see where this doubles success takes him now. From what i also heard its almost a shoe-in the Special K's are in there for the end of year doubles Finals .

The interesting thing if Kyrgios really believed he was the main card of this event.

I have no doubt in 20-25 years time, most of the world would have forgotten about. But what you can see with Barty winning and breaking the drought for a womens winner, and Rafa winning the 21st slam- these events alone will be talked about in future.

He’s a real goose but plenty of people like watching him, so there you go. Each to their own.

French open probably won't even give Nick a wildcard (depending on his ranking)

Doubt the French crowd care about Nick and his antics. Anyway he doesn't even like playing on clay, he will probably skip the clay court season

Kyrgios is missing the clay court swing, even though he is decent on the surface - His biggest issue is playing well enough to keep his ranking at a high enough level, so that he play preferred tournaments.

Long rallies on clay aren't his go mate. He goes ok on the surface but doesn't have the tank to be arsed with it.

i'm pretty sure the reigning grand slam champions from the previous tournament would be near the top of the list for a wild card spot.

Though in saying that i agree with you, outside of Australia no one really cares about nick and his antics. He will get the views in Australia because he is Australian and because the time line works. I doubt many Aussies are going to set their clocks and watch him at 3:00am in France...
