No Love Lost For Nick Kyrgios Over Australian Media’s Faults
October 10, 2015
Despite a spate of controversy spoiling his season, tennis bad boy Nick Kyrgios recorded his best-ever performance in his home Grand Slam, reaching the quarter-final of the Australian Open. The 20-year-old has been warming up in Eastern Asia and punters thinking the promising Aussie can step up next season can get best price 61.00 Kyrgios to win the 2016 Australian Open on 10Bet.
The wild-child hit the news for the wrong reasons when slamming the Australian Media after his Japan Open loss to Benoit Paire last weekend. Kyrgios took to the net to air his views – via his official Twitter account – and respond to criticism of his conduct during his quarter-final defeat to the Frenchman, in which he was also received a code violation.
Kyrgios: Aussie Media Are “A Disgrace”
Kyrgios spectacularly imploded at the Japan Open – fading badly in the final two sets on his way out of the Tokyo tournament. His behaviour during the defeat also saw him issued with a code violation – after he hit a ball into the roof of the indoor stadium when his serve was broken in the third set.
The 20-year-old tweeted: “I find it so funny, playing hard the last 2 weeks, I get one code violation and the Aussie media is all over it.You guys are a disgrace.”

Bad Boy Keeps Misbehaving
Kyrgios misdemeanours weren’t just confined to the court either – as he also fell foul of being repeatedly caught swearing by television cameras. During a second set collapse, he was heard screaming “F*** me”, for which TV commentator Nick Lester – who also deemed Kyrgios’ collapse as “Pathetic” – was forced to apologise to viewers for.
Discussing his 6-3 4-6 6-1 defeat to Paire, Lester said: “Nick Kyrgios rather imploded.
“It’s a shame. Just a shame from Kyrgios’ point of view that he wasn’t able to hang around in the third set and wasn’t able to stay with his man.
“He just kind of went away rather tamely. Let’s hope Lleyton Hewitt can install some grit because it’s required pretty urgently.”
