Beaten by stronger than him this Thursday in the second round of the Australian Open against 2and world player, Daniil Medvedev, Nick Kyrgios appeared at the press conference with a feeling of pride.
Author of an excellent match despite his lack of competition and a truncated preparation, the Australian was questioned at a press conference on the few cries heard in the stands when his opponent was serving. While condemning these outbursts, the Australian insisted on the importance of a warm and concerned public in a sport like tennis.
“I thought the atmosphere was great. I think the crowd was as it should be in such a moment of sport. You know, the audience had the most entertaining player playing in his own Grand Slam on the Rod Laver Arena. We all expected the public to be in this state. I can understand and I know it’s a gentleman’s sport, but it’s time people embraced a kind of different energy in this sport or it’s going to die out. It’s as simple as that. »
