Well played Canberra’s Nick Kyrgios

By johnboy - 17 January 2014 13

Canberra’s Nick Kyrgios won a lot of fans around the world with his close fought and cramp riddled second round Australian Open tennis loss to France’s Benoit Paire.

Definitely one to watch as he gets a few more years under his belt and miles in the legs.

What’s Your opinion?

Darts.

You are doing it wrong. Try adding more beer first.

At least we can all agree that ladies mud wrestling *IS* a sport.

Not true, if I ever have trouble sleeping then cricket (especially test matches) are sure to put me down for the night

Too complex for you?

Golf and synchronised swimming.

Sorry, this beats them all.

Synchronised swimming is even less a “sport” than thugby league and golfs alright

So long as golf exists that’s simply not true. However I will say that in their attempts to speed up the game and make it more exciting for viewers, they’ve made modern tennis kind of bland. 90% of the play is at the baseline, just slogging it back and fourth. Commentators treat it as a special occasion when one decides to come to the net, and the other night were over the moon to have Rafter serving slower but with some really creative spin that you just don’t get with the flat and low serves most prefer.

Cracking game, a bit of feeling between both of the players as well. Not bad for a player ranked 183rd vs a player ranked 28th in the world.

He will be better for the experience and should go much further next year.

I saw him in the Asa-Pacific League at North Woden late last year when he was in town. He was nursing an injury then so wasn’t quite 100%. It was good to see him do well last night. Hope he, Kokkinakis and Tomic don’t join the embarrassingly long list of Australian A grade junior talent that doesn’t quite cut it in the big leagues.

Bernie should be right if he keeps his head and Kokkinakis seems pretty mild mannered, so should be okay if his talent continues to develop.

Kyrgios seems to be a confident young bloke, hopefully not too confident! He’s got a decent game for an 18yo, long may it continue.
