There is no doubt that one of the most special tennis players on the men's professional circuit is Nick Kyrgios . Nobody can argue with his talent on the track, the one that has led him to the Top 15 as just a 21-year-old . Although he also became famous for being problematic with his attitudes and statements off the court.
On this occasion, Kyrgios has once again surprised by expressing his deepest feelings about tennis, the sport he lives with and with which he has shown a love-hate relationship since he broke into the ATP circuit.
“ Sometimes tennis is a shitty sport . It frustrates you so much that you have to be very patient. Losing sucks. You lose many times in tennis . There are times when I want to play and train, but there are also times when I hate both , ”he recently told Australian network ABC .

These are words that put into context some of their attitudes in certain matches in which they have made the news for verbally meeting their rivals, showing their anger at some failure of the umpires , or even for playing reluctantly and not putting up resistance or enthusiasm in the game .
Nick Kyrgios also recognized that he is very little tolerant of defeats and every time he loses a game he suffers a lot. “Nobody likes to lose games, but it is part of the game and you have to accept it. However, I cannot accept losing, if I tell you the truth . I'm very bad at that. I'm very competitive in everything I do, ”said the controversial Australian tennis player.

Currently, Kyrgios is ranked 44th in the ATP rankings . His start to his career was spectacular, with great results, but then he declined and in 2017 he came to admit to having tanked (letting himself lose) in eight of the 18 tournaments he played. In this 2020, where the sport was marked by a coronary virus pandemic, he was quite absent from the courts and has devoted himself more to criticizing his colleagues than to showing that he still has the talent to stand out with his game.
