Imagine Kyrgios, the most talented player ever, with tennis IQ and guts of Djokovic / Nadal, and with relentless hard working mentality of Federer.

How good would Kyrgios be in this case? Would he be "just" the best ever, or would he be the absolute monster on court?

Might as well close the sport if that happened

Still wont win anything above 500 tournament. Doesnt have the talent for possessing a good BH and return.
It's his childishness and gamesmanship which helps him to win matches.

If Kyrgios kept his disrespectful attitude and on court antics but combined them with determination and genuine hard work, he'd be hilariously entertaining. Imagine one of the top ambassadors of the sport just being a dick all the time and acting like an idiot, yet winning regardless.

30 slams and I'm not even sarcastic. But of course this is just imagination nothing more

Kyrgios, while talented, his talent is overrated. While he can hit flashy shots better than most players, he’s still primarily a servebot as his return stats are pretty terrible and he is usually outclassed in rallies against solid atp level players.

There’s no denying he’s talented and he has the ability to play points like that, but he’s not consistent and while he obviously isn’t a servebot to the extent of someone like Isner, his stats overall are servebot like (similar to Raonic’s)

Pretty ridiculous thread tbh. Talent-wise he’s good but nothing prodigious, physically he’s pretty poor, mentally he’s awful and his dedication is pathetic. Even if he did approach matches wanting to win his shotmaking (read: serve) wouldn’t be enough to get him through tough matches.

He's not the most talented player ever that's for sure. Talent is not only playing the shots and knowing how to win important points, it's also a will for hard work and a right character. His results are speaking for themselves.

Kyrgios is not the most talented nor is among the most talented ever, and I'm speaking purely of tennis skill. His point construction for example is average at best.

Even if Kyrgios had a high IQ and courage, he'd not be the best, because he's nowhere near as athletic as Rafa/Djokovic.
That's the thing people don't mention about Rafa/Djokovic.....they are the 2 most athletic players ever (in their prime I mean, not now).
So forget about Kyrgios, and focus on Monfils instead, because Monfils has the athleticism of Rafa/Djokovic.
So if you add IQ and courage to Monfils, you get the best in the world.

mentally awful?

Since you aren't referring to his dedication, what are you referring to? His match mentality? His clutch is good.

Yeah just his focus during matches. Look at the Beijing 2017 final, he started well, had one unlucky decision go against him and decided he couldn’t be bothered. Or his match v Auger Aliassime at queen’s this year. Matched him all the way then just choked at the end.

Same could b said for D. Brown & Monfils. Great showboaters & crowdpleasers but little discipline that translates to no consistency.
