Nick Kyrgios Blasts Out On Umpire After Controversial Call

Former World No. 13 and controversial tennis star Nick Kyrgios unloaded his wrath on the chair umpire during his third consecutive defeat at the Toronto Masters. Kyrgios, who now sits at No. 80, was up against Reilly Opelka in the first round of the Toronto open. Kyrgios was cruising to victory when a controversial moment triggered a collapse. 

It was when the set was tied at 4-4 when Opelka proceeded to the net and touched it with his racket. Kyrgios eventually lost the point and went on to unload his anger on the umpire. “What are you watching? I saw his foot touch the net, and you’re not going to call it,” Kyrgios said to the umpire.

“What else could you be watching, bro? I can see his foot touch the net from where I am, and you don’t call anything. It’s a joke, bro. It cost me the f—ing set. Bulls—.”

Opelka then went on to win the match, pushing Kyrgios to his third defeat on the trot. 

Earlier, Nick Kyrgios had a moment of truth during a recent press conference. Talking about his failing competitive edge, Kyrgios went on to say: 

“I’m not feeling the severity of certain points, and I don’t feel the pressure as much as obviously playing week in, week out,” said Kyrgios.

“You feel when you kind of have to press, when you kind of have to relax, when you kind of coast, when you kind of push.

“I don’t really feel like my body and my mind quite understand the severity of some points here or there because I haven’t played that much.

“Look, I’m disappointed. I’m disappointed.

“I know that I’m going to be dealing with a lot of s**t now on social media. Like, my head’s in the shed, to be honest.

“I don’t know; I didn’t play great.”

Australian Tennis Star Nick Kyrgios Drops Out of Olympics in Controversial Manner

Nick Kyrgios, the Australian tennis star, has decided to back out of the Olympics in a controversial manner. Just days before the tournament was slotted to begin, Nick Kyrgios took to his Twitter and announced his decision to quit the tournament. 

“Hey guys – I just want to let you know that I’ve decided to withdraw from the Olympics,” Kyrgios said on Twitter.

“It’s a decision I didn’t make lightly. It’s been my dream to represent Australia at the Olympics and I know I may never get that opportunity again.”

The maverick cited his recent injury trouble and the lack of fans as his two main reasons for deciding not to participate in Japan.

“I know myself. The thought of playing in front of empty stadiums just doesn’t sit right with me. It never has,” Kyrgios continued.

“I also wouldn’t want to take an opportunity away from a healthy Aussie athlete ready to represent the country.

“I will also take all the time I need to get my body right. Good luck to all the Aussies competing and I’ll see you back on the court real soon.”

Earlier, Nick Kyrgios has said that he definitely does not love the sport as much as some of the legends do. “I definitely don’t love this sport as those legends do,” Krygios admitted in a post-match interview at Wimbledon. 

“Like, I feel like Federer, Nadal and Novak Djokovic wouldn’t be able to live without tennis. I feel like that’s their first love.

“For me, my first love was basketball and I wasn’t able to chase that dream, so definitely, I don’t wake up every day having that coming so easily, like wanting to get better.”

I’m not saying I’m going to retire any time soon, I’m just saying I feel as if I’ve been on tour for a long time,” he added.

“There are a lot of things I want to do outside of tennis,” the tennis star went on to say.

Nick Kyrgios in the News Again

Controversial Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios is once again making rounds on the internet. The recent surge in Kyrgios’s popularity has come after the 26-year old berated netizens for comparing him to Australian Bernard Tomic. 

The tennis star has maintained his controversial demeanor and style on the internet during the current pandemic and hasn’t shied away from throwing jibes at fellow stars. 

Nick Kyrgios is once again making waves on social media after a rant at people comparing him to fellow Australian Bernard Tomic.

The 26-year-old has been a controversial figure on social media throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and he wasn’t reluctant to air his views once again after the perceived slight.

“I got compared with Bernard Tomic today and I’ve never felt more insulted,” Kyrgios wrote.

Does he have a foundation? Does he have the accomplishments? Did he raise money for the bushfires? It’s disgusting, man.

Do your research. Oh and by accomplishments I mean beating the big 4 [in reference to wins over Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic].”

The tennis star has also confirmed his presence in the ATP Mallorca Championships at the Calvia Country Club from June 19-26. Nick’s presence in the tournament was confirmed by tournament organizer Toni Nadal in a recent interview. 

Nadal went on to speak about the importance of players like Kyrgios in the tournament and how they increase viewership. 

He is well-known all around the world, and he guarantees a spectacle,” Nadal said.

Let’s hope he meets [Mallorcan] Jaume [Munar] in the final.

In more news, tennis legend Rod Laver has called for Nick Kyrgios to be suspended from the ATP tour on the basis of the consistently bad behavior he has displayed. The 26-year-old Kyrgios has, on multiple occasions, shown signs of outburst during games and set a very poor example for kids watching the game. 

Whatever they have done hasn’t worked so far, so maybe a suspension is the only answer,” Rod Laver told The Sydney Morning Herald in a recent interview.

I’m not sure he’s learned anything from any of the things that have gone on.”

Nick is Nick, unfortunately,” Laver said. “He could have been, or still could become, a world champion because of his serving ability, his game.

Nick Kyrgios Opens Up About Dark Battle With Depression

Nick Kyrgios, one of tennis’s most temperamental and aggressive stars, has been part of numerous controversies in the past few years. He has also been criticized for his antics on court and has many acts of misdemeanor to his name. 

Nick Kyrgios, who comes from Australia, has opened up about his battle with depression and has admitted to being in a dark and lonely place during his recent battles as he went through the relentless grind and pressure of tennis tours. 

Kyrgios has been part of a number of temperamental and aggressive reactions on courts. These reactions include expletive meltdowns, explosive racquet smashing on the court and other arguments with on-field personnel and the crowd. The ATP even put Kyrgios on probation and asked him to seek professional help for his issues. 

I don’t think people understand how lonely tennis can be,” Kyrgios told Sydney’s Sunday Telegraph magazine.

You’re out there on the court on your own. You can’t really talk to anyone. You have to figure things out for yourself. I did struggle with that.”

Kyrgios says he always remembers himself as an emotional individual, and does not like spending long periods away from his family home in Canberra. He also mentioned there were times when he was seriously and clinically depressed. 

I remember waking up in Shanghai one year and it was 4pm and I was still in bed, curtains closed. I didn’t want to see the light of day,” he said.

I felt like no one wanted to know me as a person, they just wanted to get a hold of me as a tennis player and use me. I didn’t feel like I could trust anyone. It was a lonely, dark place. And things came from that.”

A lot of people were putting pressure on me, I put a lot of pressure on myself. I just lost joy for the game and I was spiraling out of control,” he added.

“I fell into depression because of the things I thought I had to be.”

The 25-year-old has done some damage control on his falling reputation by assisting fundraising efforts for deadly bushfires in Australia last summer and also adding a voice of reason during the coronavirus pandemic. 

Nothing beats playing in some of the best parts of the world against tough opponents and doing all the work off the court to have success. I’m definitely missing it. But I don’t live and breathe tennis,” he said.

I love being at home with my family and my girlfriend, and working with my foundation (for underprivileged children) and helping the community. There are plenty of other things I love doing,” he concluded.

Russian Tennis Pro Daniil Medvedev Asks Nick Kyrgios to Team up for Men’s Doubles

Just when you thought the world of tennis couldn’t get more controversial and funnier, Russian tennis player Daniil Medvedev extended the offer of a double team up to controversial Australian counterpart, Nick Kyrgios. Kyrgios has been in the news off late for all the wrong reasons as the Australian has had a hard time trying to conform to the norms that we see in place within the tennis court.

23-year-old Medvedev recently arrived to Shanghai for the ATP Masters and had a Q&A session on Instagram, where fans asked him multiple questions about his future plans. The session was held for followers so that they could learn a bit more about the life of the tennis prodigy and how he handles his other activities.

While the first few questions were about the personal life of Medvedev, including his family, fans soon started asking professional questions. One of the fans asked Medvedev “When will you play doubles with Kyrgios?”

Medvedev saw a good offer in the question and tagged Kyrgios in the post asking “Any doubles maybe?”

Medvedev has been in hot form off late and is currently the world’s fourth ranked player. His success has been hidden from none, and many supporters of the game have been positively influenced by his success.

While Medvedev previously had the reputation of a ‘bad boy’ he’s surely changing it for the better and wants to be known as a professional and not as a bad boy.

The team up of Kyrgios with Medvedev has already got tennis fans fantasizing about the prospects that could come. Both players have quite a reputation for verbal attacks on the court and it will quite an act seeing them battle it out on the same side of the court.
