Re: Nick Kyrgios media coverage

Yes he has consistently said very sensible things. Good to see that he is so well grounded.

Sad that he can't even catch a train without being hounded by paparazzi though.

Re: Nick Kyrgios media coverage

Why do you have to keep posting new threads about him? Just post in his thread.

Re: Nick Kyrgios media coverage

Given volume of stuff around about him at the moment, and number of people who are interested in finding it, seemed more sensible to separate it out, in advance of getting a separate forum set up.

However, mods seem to prefer it to stay as one so I'll stick with that in future except for major things.

Re: Nick Kyrgios media coverage

A word of advice until Nick gets a Forum it is better to have everything in one thread that shows lots and lots of posts in it! That way when it comes time to submit names for new player forums you help make your case by how much activity there is in his thread. And hopefully Nick himself will help out that cause by playing well so posters will get to know him and start coming to his thread You can always spread out after he does get a Forum. EDIT: You can always get these threads merged together by a Mod. I know the perfect person for that job. So just PM me if you want them merged and I will pass along the request for you

Re: Nick Kyrgios media coverage

Thanks for the advice and offer - actually the schedule thread has already been merged.

I can see the point of what you are saying, but from a practical point of view, a lot easier to find things if they have separate threads (for things like schedule, media, etc) than if you have to hunt back through the multiple pages!

And I gather the prospect of a sub-forum could be years away...

Re: Nick Kyrgios - Yes He Canberra

Nice schedule.

@Sock's picture: If they wanted a US player there, they could have chosen Jared Donaldson, seems more dangerous than Sock at this moment.

Re: Nick Kyrgios - Yes He Canberra

There's a new piece in the Fairfax media by Chris Dutton saying off to Toronto on Thursday to escape the media hype (lol):

Quote:
Canberra tennis star Nick Kyrgios will be relieved to escape the popularity bubble of Australia to focus on his US Open campaign, and says he no longer feels the pressure to prove himself on the international stage.

The teenager who shot to fame following a superb Wimbledon campaign, which included beating then-world No.1 Rafael Nadal, insists he won't be burdened by pressure to continue his remarkable rise when he resumes his career next week.

Kyrgios will leave Canberra on Thursday to fly to Toronto for his first tournament since Wimbledon as he ramps up his US Open preparations.

It's a chance to regain some normality in his life and turn his attention to toppling the world's best players.

Just last week the world No.69 had more than 30 media requests and the constant attention has taken its toll in his three-week "break" back home.

"Nothing has changed with my friends or family, I'm just a normal kid," Kyrgios said.

"But everyone wants a piece of you when you come back. My whole family was talking about tennis when I got back, but I just told them I was tired and asked to talk about other things.

"I was under the pump and stressing out a bit. But hopefully that dies down next time I'm back.

"It's been pretty full on. I wouldn't say I've had any time to relax, it's been more intense than overseas.

"One positive side of going overseas is getting away from that, you play tournaments but outside of training and playing everything is different."
http://www.canberratimes.com.au/spor...729-zy2oi.html

I wouldn't be betting on the media interest dying down on his return, but I guess that will depend on how this run goes!

The article also quotes new coach Larkham as suggesting he could make top ten by end of the year:

Quote:
"I'm confident he will consistently play top 30 tennis and I think he'll keep winning matches,'' Larkham said. "For the first time in a while, there's no limit. There's no reason that he couldn't be top 20 or top 10 at the end of the year.

"It's expectation in your head, in tennis if you don't play well you could easily lose to a guy outside the top 100 in the world. That's part of learning and being on the way up."
That's certainly a challenging target, but not impossible - he is sitting on 770 points at the moment, defending only 70 over the next couple of months. Top 30 cut off currently around 1200 points, top 20 1645, top 10 3040. So would need around 500, 945, or 2340 points respectively. And there are 4,000 points up for grabs in his next three outings.

But as he will be unseeded at all three events, and has to go through qualifying at Toronto and Cincinnati, might be a tough ask depending on the draw.

Possible gains are 360 if he equals his Wimbledon run at the USO; 720 if he made to the semis. Masters, assuming he makes it through qualifying, is 180 for a QF, 360 for a semi.

Top 30 looks to me a good bet, top 20 possible but requires a really excellent run, and top ten...

But of course there is still September and October to do some points vulturing if necessary to get seeded at AO!

Re: Nick Kyrgios - Yes He Canberra

New coach Larkham - I hope it is Todd and not Brent Larkham...

Even cousin Steve (the Wallaby) would be better..

Tomic, Matosevic, Groth, Jones, JP Smith, Matty Reid, Barton, Duckworth, Whittington, Kubler, Kyrgios, Bolt, Kokkinakis, Polansky and James Ward
