Haha love it. Was concerned him playing Djokovic in the second round, but he knows Djokovic would whoop his ass in this form... So he made sure he avoids it so he can vulture again two wins when Djokovic is out of form.

Wasted chance to correct the h2h. Wise move by Nick - Nole fans in ruins.

After Kyrgios somewhat unexpectedly brain farted a 15-40 BP early first set, the winds seemed to shift, and destiny was on a well playing Kohli's side... one troubled Kyrgios service game a set was enough.

9th game 2nd set Nick the Quick with a 38 second service game, and it was that long because he had to wait for 2 secs as the ump said wait.

Kohli with way too high tennis iq for Kyrgios, some really great shots from him and got a lot of returns in play to expose Kyrgios' servebot tendencies.

Tanking to preserve H2H against the BOAT. Kyrgios must read MTF :yeah:

I fully expected Kyrgios to not go very far at IW even before the draw came out but I wasn't expecting him to go out in R1. Anyone who thought he'd go deep 2 tournaments in a row was deluding themselves.

Kyrgios' attitude will keep disappointing his fans. He will never solve this. Really an immensely talented guy, but bad attitude always threatens to derail him. Kohli the pro ate his lunch. Next.

Welp, it's not like NK didn't try. He did. Until the very last game, no less. So that's one positive to take from this match. :shrug:

Kohli was fantastic against PHH (who was beyond bad, admittedly). Today he kept playing very cleanly for the most part. So the only truly shocking thing was his clutchness. He saved 4 BP's in one game from 0-40 and even another one serving for the set. Kyrgios broke himself on the first BP he faced. Then, as per, he looked disinterested for a short while, yet pulled himself together somewhat for the second set. Didn't cut it. Kyrgios, as unpredictable as he is, also has patterns. Kohli and his OP tennis IQ managed to get a decent read on both Nick's serve and return, which completely took the racket out of his hand.
Would love to see the German go deep here, but the draw is a B...

Is anyone surprise? Kyrgios had his first of three good weeks per season. Watch out for him again at the grass courts.

... No surprise here.Nick got his title & will now probably fart ass around for another 6 months or so until the next breeze he slipstreams on comes by.


Novak should reach the semi's easily now without breaking a sweat.
