Default Kyrgios' brother talks about "Anti-Nick Propaganda"



All players who really go in a tirade against umpires deserve to be called out on their behavior, in Nick's case it isn't just against the umpires, also against fans.



His game is pretty awesome to watch but he has to learn to deal with criticism, every single sports star is under huge scrutiny these days, the young and upcoming are no different and they have to "play the game", don't let that go to their head.

Djokovic for example had a fame of being a "faker", a "clown". He grew up and became the great champion we know today, he understood that he had to let the racket do the talking.

Kyrgios has the game and the charisma to go places but won't do it if he's more concerned about "dirty-scum" officers and "no-one" fans than his own game.

His no-one mark was more disturbing and low than all the shits he gives the umpires.

It surprises me that the Kyrgios camp doesn't see that simply cleaning up his act a bit with officials would take so much heat off him. It's not like people want him to switch to a one-handed backhand. Just treat the officials with respect. Don't become a Fognini. Simple.

Did the OP miss the Australian Open Final?

Djokovic's behaviour was worse than ever.

I appreciate the entertainment, but I'm puzzled as to why Nick and Christos are giving so much attention to 'internet haters'. It's politically correct to be outraged by his no one comment, but let's face it, it's true. We're all no ones who are spending way too much time following a sport, a completely irrelevant form of entertainment. They should focus on Nick's game and leave the childish bickering to us no ones.

They can't accept any kind of comments that aren't praising Nick and that is frankly stupid, someone with a personality as strong as Kyrgios will always polarize opinions and both he and his camp have to learn to take criticism with a pinch of salt, not everything is against them, there is constructive criticism (that everyone gets in life, even huge sports stars) but they don't seem to be able to see it.

And if we're all no-ones then we should stop going to tournaments and watching tennis on TV, after all we don't matter, right?

We are the ones bringing the money to tennis, so we're entitled to our opinions about the players we watch.

Christos is interviewed here, saying at 3:40 that it's fine that everything Nick does gets scrutinized, as long as it's in line with what really happened. But you can't expect someone to be unbiased when it comes to his brother, so this will be an endless struggle, pretty much every criticism will be unjustified in his eyes

Of course he won't be unbiased but he is getting a bit embarrassing if he needs to drag other players down the mud to defend his brother , Nick is a grown man and can fight his own battles IMO, in fact instead of helping, Christos is making things even worse.

I don't expect Christos to be unbiased - he's Nick's brother - but he needs to learn to not respond to every bit of criticism with a flametorch. That only makes situations worse. If Nick was to treat the officials with respect, the bad press he's getting would die down in no time. People really want him to succeed, and it'd be written off as "youthful indiscretion" and no harm done. Reacting super defensively - savaging journalists and fans on Twitter, for example - is really not going to help Nick.

For example, one of the unhelpful things Christos does is he searches Nick's name on Twitter and then goes after people.

To take only one example:



That wasn't directed at you at all, dude. It's somebody talking to himself. If you reach the point where you are LOOKING for fights with random Twitter users, you've gone too far.

Another example:



He also gets in fights on Twitter over articles he doesn't think covered Nick well.



I understand the urge to be a little sibling's attack dog. But biting the mailman's arm and getting sued is not helpful.

If somebody called you an asshole on the internet, you'd be all over them. You're complaining because he's acting like a normal person.

A lot of people confuse "personality" with immaturity.

When you grow up, you change, if you don't then it means you're not maturing.

Of course this isn't like becoming a pod person or anything like that, the basis of your own self will always be there but your tastes and your behavior can (and should) change as you grow older.

I'm not the same person I was when I was 20 and I won't be the same person I am today when I am 40.

Few things are worse than being stuck in eternal teenhood.
