Sorry but he’s a loser, a lazy waste of potential, can’t even say he’s a has-been because he is a never-was. He never made it close to the pinnacle of the sport and everyone will forget about his flashes of brilliance because they are just flashes. Keep banging those instawhores, mate. That’s the limit of your “achievements”

Talent is a lot broader a category than just what Nick happens to do well. He's a talented player in some regards but not in others. A certain kind of fan tends to wildly overrate some manifestations of talent and wildly underrate other manifestations.

A lot of guys on tour could hit the trick shots Nick hits but the mentality (and time spent) required to make this a part of one's game in serious matches is at cross purposes with actually maximizing one's chances to win.

Kyrgios has worked hard. You don’t get to that level just on “talent” as many would have you believe. Kyrgios just doesn’t want to dedicate the time and hard work necessary to compete consistently At the highest level because like many people he is comfortable and other things are obviously more interesting to him than being number 1 or a grand slam champion. He does make alot of excuses which is a sign of immaturity but tennis is obviously not a burning passion for him and there is nothing wrong with that. We each have to live our lives as we see fit, preferably without regards how others think you should.

Kyrgios is a servebot who is great at tiebreakers, except for when he lost 4 tiebreakers in a row to Nadal at 2019 Wimbledon and 2020 AO.
Beating Nadal at 2014 Wimbledon was his peak, albeit dependent on Nadal's slump.

Since when is hitting flashy shots and smacking balls as hard as you can talent?? Kyrgios is just a player who is relevant as he has issues in his head.
Who's recently banned DA are you?

How to make a DA....
Pick a mad name
Pick obscure country

That's fine, but doesn't he have an obligation to opponents, fans, sponsors, tournament officials, etc,, to give an honest effort every time he steps on the court? He is a professional athlete. Shouldn't he act like one?
