Nope, seeing as Australia looks like going ahead as normal, albeit delayed by two or three weeks.

Funny how a bunch of Australian players refused to play at all after the season restarted, acting superior or something.
The hypocrites will play, of course.

Let's hope he will wait for global eradication first before continuing.

Will be interesting to see if he has fallen behind NextGen.

As of Washington 2019, Kyrgios looked stronger than best of NextGen. Then Medvedev went on his great HC run.

In 2021, will Kyrgios still be able to compete against the younger guys?

As of now, Kyrgios's combined H2H against Medvedev-Tsitsipas-Zverev is 8-3 in his favour.

Will that flip next year? I'm not so sure.

Loathe him all you like, but Kyrgios has an excellent game.

He will surely play "Melbourne 250" and AO.
But I will not be surprised if he stays at Oz after the tour departs down under and moves to Europe/US

I mean .. can you imagine Nick in a hotel room without windows for 14 days ?

Key word here is "looked", he said himself it was one of the best weeks of his life, yet barely beat an average Tsitsipas.

It's like saying Tsonga looked better than the big 3 in Toronto when he all beat them successively.

Kyrgios jumped the shark a while ago.

I'd be inclined to agree if Kyrgios's overall record against big players wasn't so good.

He said he is a responsible person, keeping others accountable and he has been reporting fellow players to authorities all year. Hopefully he stays consistent with this and skips the season.

We will see what he's made of this coming year

In some ways it is understandable he went off the rails:

-he had an insane amount of media attention. Hard to deal with at such a young age
-hes from Australia and the tour is so far away. Gets lonely
-grew up very sheltered. The wide world hit him too hard

25 now and basically a year to regroup, we will see if he is actually worth a damn, or if he's a genuine bum

He used to beat Zverev, Tsitsipas and Medvedev when on his game.

Didn't play Thiem much but I'd wager he would've beaten him off clay too

See if he has any pride or if he just wants to excell at video games
