Whether you like him or not, the imperfect genius Despite being one of the tennis world’s most divisive figures. Nick Kyrgios at least seems “content” with himself. When the mysterious Australian, then 19 years old, defeated Rafael Nadal to go to the Wimbledon quarterfinals in 2014, he startled the tennis world. His undeniable talent has, however, been overshadowed by his numerous temper tantrums and fines, and he has never finished higher at a Grand Slam. Eight years later, Kyrgios is back in Wimbledon’s final eight, and this time he has a real chance to reach his full potential.
Despite his theatrics on the court, Nadal has previously referred to Kyrgios as “not a horrible guy,” stating that he is a player with a tremendous skill who may be competing for the top slot.
However, Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece, who fell to Kyrgios in a tumultuous third-round match this year at the All England Club. Charged that the Australian bullied his opponents with his on-court tantrums.
The 27-year-old Kyrgios laughed off the charge and played well against American Brandon Nakashima in the fourth round.
The news that Kyrgios has been ordered to appear in court in his hometown of Canberra in August on a charge of assault was first reported in an Australian publication on Tuesday, delaying his Wimbledon preparations.
When Kyrgios was four years old, he showed up at the National Sports Club in Lyneham, Canberra, eager to take lessons with his elder brother and sister. According to tennis coach Andrew Bulley, Kyrgios was “small, fat, and hyperactive.”
Before experiencing a growth spurt in his early teens, Kyrgios was always better than his classmates but “he wasn’t anything extra spectacular.” As a result, he became a tall player with a powerful serve who is now regarded as one of the greatest in the industry.
As opposed to the majority of the students under Bulley’s instruction, Nick “would always be experimenting, which you can see when he plays — he has always got four or five choices ready to go.”
When things were either too simple or too difficult, there was also the bored expression.
At the age of 17, Kyrgios was the top-ranked young player and the Australian Open boys’ singles champion in 2013. The following year, he surprised Nadal by winning.
Bulley highlights the support Kyrgios enjoys from his Malaysian mother Norlaila and Greek father Giorgos, who emphasized hard work and discipline.
Despite coming from a royal family, Norlaila gave up her throne when she migrated to Australia.
Giorgos, the “perfectionist,” calls his 40th-ranked kid a “perfectionist” and a “hard on himself.”
“The only recommendation we have for him is to try his hardest. You can’t see the future, win or lose. He is aware that as long as he maintains his strength, he has a decent chance of performing well against anyone.”
Kyrgios hasn’t had a coach since making his breakthrough in 2013. And he once told tennisnet.com he doesn’t like to take advice.
Cristian Garin of Chile is the next opponent for Kyrgios at Wimbledon. After which he might face Rafael Nadal in the semifinals and Novak Djokovic in the championship match.
While Djokovic has lost both of his matchups against Kyrgios. Nadal has triumphed in six of his nine contests versus the erratic Australian.
In Kyrgios’ tumultuous career, he has received fines totaling more than $550,000 for offenses like not trying hard enough. A racquet-smashing tantrum, spitting at fans and throwing a chair onto the court.
He admitted to having suicidal thoughts, self-harming, and drug usage in an Instagram post from earlier this year, alluding to one of his “darkest periods” in 2019. He also spoke about his difficulties with mental health.
“You can see evidence of my self-harm on my right arm if you look attentively. I was physically fighting to get out of bed because I was having suicidal thoughts. Let alone perform in front of millions of people “He stated while displaying a picture from that year’s Australian Open.
He did, however, add that he was pleased with how “totally I turned me around.”
More recently, he told ABC News the following: “Every day when I look in the mirror, I can see that I’m at ease with who I am.
“In terms of wanting to be like Roger Federer or anything similar. I don’t really care if I never win a Grand Slam (singles title).
“Now, though, I genuinely don’t care how people view me since I know in my heart that I’m a kind person, and those around me also know this. Always being me.”
