Maybe this Nick Kyrgios shapshot anecdote observed by former ATP top 60 player Gilad Bloom, explains Nick Kyrgios better than any of his own words or his matches…

“I went to the Open on Friday and was wandering around the outside courts then I saw Kyrgios on the court fooling around and playing a mini tennis game with three other juniors for about an hour,” said Bloom. “He was so into it!

Leave it to Nick Kyrgios to spark the biggest controversy of the US Open … so far.

Today Nick was getting trounced by Pierre Hugues-Hebert on court 17. Nick double-faulted to squander the first set 4-6 and was down 0-3 in the second. The crowd was booing what appeared to be another Kyrgios tank. One witness said he saw Nick mutter to his box, “I’m done.”

By Scoop Malinowski

It’s three years now that Lleyton Hewitt has been at the helm of the Australian Davis Cup team and two of those years produced first round crash outs, including this weekend’s surprising disastrous loss to Germany.

Hewitt’s aggressive, pushy captaining style has clearly worked with developing young Alex Deminaur into a major prospect who has made a big name for himself by reaching an ATP final this year and by extending Alex Zverev to a fifth set tiebreaker in the first singles match on Friday.

Nick Kyrgios had just lost to Grigor Dimitrov. His dream to win his first major was shattered. It was probably the worst, most excruciating moment of his career. To be playing the best tennis of his life with an entire nation vehemently supporting and backing his Herculean efforts…fighting with every ounce of passion and fury he could muster, only to helplessly watch Dimitrov’s running forehand winner at 4-6 in the fourth set tiebreaker end the epic showdown 67 67 64 67.

Head bowed, mind spinning, heart burning, eyes deadened, body limp, Kyrgios strode to the net a defeated man. Instead of the perfunctory, hollow handshake, Kyrgios showed his unpredictable nature yet again.

The top seed and ATP world no. 1 Rafael Nadal lost an epic five setter last year in the final to Roger Federer despite being up 3-1 in the fifth set, but the 31-year-old lefty has not played an official match yet this year and his last match was a loss in three sets at the ATP World Tour Finals to no. 7 seed David Goffin.

Roger Federer, the world no. 2 and defending champion, looked sharp in winning all four of his matches at Hopman Cup two weeks ago. The 36-year-old Swiss, who has won in Melbourne five times, is the odds-on favorite to conquer again.

By Scoop Malinowski

Nick Kyrgios, who just decimated the Brisbane field, to win his first ATP title in two years with a straight set final win vs Ryan Harrison, holds a very rare, most impressive distinction in his career.

Kyrgios is the only man in history to beat prime Federer, Nadal and Djokovic the first time he played each. That is an incredible achievement and most likely a feat that will never be matched.
