No he sabotaged FAA's interview at Wimbledon I doubt he would of done that to a lot of other players. FAA was too nice to say piss off you loss.
Not sure if the boys do get to end of finals they will go as it will be in Turn albeit not on clay.
Unfortunately Thansis is just as bad.

I watched that game and find it funny that a salty Venus has a go at Krygios when Venus carried on like an absolute ******* at times too, the crowd turned on him completely during the second set when he started taunted them.

Clearly he couldn’t handle playing in such a hostile environment when he’s only ever used to playing in front of his Mum and a couple of randos before they realise they’re at the wrong court.

The pros never get distracted by that crap and maintain their composure.
You wonder alot of his salty bitter comments could be attributed to not being good enough himself to be a singles player so when he sees someone with twice the talent he has and is wasting it he can't handle it and it rubs him up the wrong way.

The comments about Nick never being serious are rubbish. Once he realised you actually have to have the right mindset and the will to put in the hard work in order to win Grand Slams and not just rely on prodigious talent he shut up shop. Same thing happened with Tomic. He was serious early in his career absolutely. Than he worked out " I can still make alot of money by being a showman and winning the occasional tournament and thats what im going to do". Which is what we see today.

It's not a bad outlook though. Not working hard whilst making heaps of cash. Sign me up.

Most important thing is he has built up his ranking so no need for more wildcards - Kyrgios has only ever reached one final of a Master's 1000 tournament.

Time for lengthy suspensions from the tour for umpire abuse. It's ugly to watch and a terrible example for kids. Fines are meaningless for multi-millionaires like Kyrgios and Zverev. Jim Carrey said the Oscar attendees applauding Will Smith were spineless and the ATP & WTA are no different. The tail wags the dog.

Unfortunately AT:p cannot afford to lose any star power for their tournaments due to the three playing less tournaments especially if Novak is not able to participant due to not being vaccinated. At least make the players attend anger management meetings. TBH Krygios wouldn't care if he got suspended Sasha would. I didn't see the meltdown but why wasn't I'm surprised. Seriously I would not like to be around him if you didn't agree with him.

I mean, he did win a clay court match this morning.....

It's more funny assuming that he will still be with this one in 15 months time....

I must have more influence on the ATP than I realised.

Stop the tantrums! Kyrgios and Zverev are reprimanded by the ATP

I'm starting a pool on Nick's first default and/or suspension. When's his next tournament?

Now Krygios is the best on grass, better than Fed and Novak. Good grief is there no getting past his ego. The bloke has serious mental problems.

Yes he could be the best on grass but due to the fact he won't get a coach he won't get past the early rounds. How the hail does he think he can workout how to play Alcaraz if he doesn't have a proper coach or doesn't even watch tennis.
