Just glad Nick lost. I just can't stand him anymore.

Congratulations Novak! :mrgreen:

Only got to see tail end of fourth set, what
was Kyrgios going on and on about directing
his anger towards his box seemingly trying to
get him to calm down and focus?

Kyrgios offers a rare insight into the mind of a tennis player. What 99.9% of players think after missing a ball, he vocalises unfiltered. Tells it to his box (well, shouts it to his box), and then moves on.

It is unconventional - to say the least - but I guess this is how he deals with getting it out of his system. As spectator or opponent, it must be a special experience. His box is obviously used to it :-D

It was funny to see him cursing unfiltered towards his box, with Prince George (btw, so sad to see an 8y-old dressed up as a 80y old on a sunny day at Wimbledon) sitting yards away. He heard more swear-words in one afternoon than in his whole life.
"Mommy, what does that word means?" lol.....

Thanks.

I guess it has worked well enough to get him this far.

I fear for Nick's current gf sitting in that box not supporting him at the level he expects/demands, given the assault case brought by an ex. I just learned his mom is a Malay princess, so that makes him a little prince. It now all makes sense. He's a spoilt, entitled brat.

A brat? Most likely… spoiled and entitled? As a son of a painter and a mother who had to give up everything (incl her title) when moving to Australia n her youth, I do not share your opinion… entitled people rarely set up foundations for underprivileged kids, for example.

Could you elaborate on how he was spoiled as a kid? Or just a made-up assumption from a hater? I have no problems that you dislike someone, but the moment you need made-up arguments, you prove to be worse… just saying…
