  • I think he has a lot of growing up to do, his comments and actions in public show immaturity, but I also think he’s getting there……slowly

  • I don’t pay a lot of attention. He’s relatively young, I think, and so sometimes behaves like an idiot. He needs to grow up a bit.

  • I don’t mind him. He just calls things as he sees them which I appreciate. He is a great player.

  • He has a temper, he is dramatic and he behaves badly sometimes which isn’t good for tennis. However, he’s a great player, is entertaining to watch and I can’t help liking him

  • I don’t follow the tennis, but although he is a good player his sportsmanship and attitude is extremely poor

  • I do not follow tennis or tennis celebrities and cannot form an opinion of him based only on news clips/reports.

  • He has no filter…….

  • Who? Sorry I don’t know who and what is about ????

  • Lol, I had to google who Nick Kyrgios is. I don’t watch television. I understand he’s on the rude list ?

  • I dont watch tennis no more because I feel as though alot of the players are very up them selves and I dont like those kind of people. Look at how the gf of a tennis player carried on because she had to wash her own hair.

  • Maybe I’m “old-fashioned”, but the behaviour of players such as Kyrgios does not do them any favours. If our own children behave like that, we call them “spoiled brats”.

    While I acknowledge his tennis skills, I no longer watch any of his matches, or even interviews.

    I am very disappointed today with the actions and attitudes of some of our sportspeople – not just tennis players, or even only Australian sportspeople – but also the reactions from some TV presenters.

    * My first point –
    These sports players, ESPECIALLY those with high profiles, are representatives of their sport, and their country.
    As such, I find them embossing on both counts.

    They are role models for our children, whether or not our children play sports.

    Two of my children were tournament tennis players, who represented their sport locally, interstate, and internationally.
    One of my sons became so disillusioned with the attitude and behaviour of some top players, he actually refuses to watch tennis any more, although he has never lost his love of the game.

    These players are (supposed to be) adults, with top players earning more money than most of us will ever see in our lifetime. As such, they should BEHAVE like adults, no matter how talented they are.
    There are NO reasons, or excuses, for tantrums, abusing umpires, foul language, smashing rackets, etc.

    * My second point, regarding TV presenters –
    Last week, on a very well known morning TV show, they were discussing Kyrgios and his on court behaviour.
    I understand their praise of his talent, but then they overstepped the line with their comments about how his game “lifts” when he acts out on court, and worse, they further endorsed his behaviour, saying, “Whatever works.”.

    I don’t ever remember people holding this opinion of players such as McEnroe, Ivanisovich, and many others, so why is this now acceptable!

    I don’t care how talented a player is, why do we celebrate their self-centred behaviour, showing no respect for their fans, and especially up and coming players?

    I have no respect for players such as Kyrgios, regardless of talent.

    They need to respect themselves more, and realise talent is NOT a free pass to childish tantrums – EVER!

  • A it of good and bad. Way too arrogant and too much attitude but then he can turn it around.

  • He is what he is. Sometimes he really annoys me and other times I’m team Nick.
