Kyrgios continues to shoot in all directions on and off the pitch.
Banalizing inappropriate behavior is dangerous. Nick Kyrgios has become the master of provocations. His fans and detractors no longer count insults, services from below, shattered furniture, balanced games or even spikes shot in front of journalists.
At the start of the tournament, the Australian had left a positive impression. Nick the terror was even author of a serious tennis. He took the opportunity to dismiss American Steve Johnson 6-3, 7-6 (1), 6-4.
He then caught up at the post-match press point. He first assured that the fine of $ 113,000 received in Cincinnati did not bother him. He had been found guilty of insulting the referee, spitting and snorting. Instead of staying there, the bad boy has gone further in his analysis of the system. "ATP is still quite corrupt, so it does not bother me at all."
When a colleague wanted to revive him on the corrupt term, Nick Kyrgios was no longer in the mood to agree on the subject. "I was fined $ 113,000, but why such a fine?" In fact, why are we talking about something that happened three weeks ago when I just cut my opponent out of the first round in three sets "Have you ever sworn against anyone before? You are not a professional athlete."
ATP had already asked him to see a psychiatrist in late 2018. We no longer talk about fines. This umpteenth provocation whose gravity is maximum will not go unpunished. Will ATP dare to suspend it?
