The publication of the interview was well-timed. On the day in Rome the entire day's program, rain was expected to be a 24 sixteenth finals (including Federer - Sousa and Bencic - Mladenovic), published by the American Journalist Ben Rothenberg (New York Times) a Podcast in which Nick Kyrgios takes 45 minutes relentlessly to his point of view.
The most controversial are his statements about Novak Djokovic. "He's sick, obsessed in prison, to be loved. He wants to be like Roger (Federer)," the Australian said. "He doesn't want to be liked, that I can't stand him. And how he rejoices, and is so embarrassing." Djokovic's cheering gesture with which he wants to demonstrate with both arms, his love to the audience, enerviere him so much that he'll imitate it in front of the eyes of the Serbs, if he beat him the next Time.
Kyrgios has won both previous duels with the current number 1, both in 2017. Therefore, to be a sporting respect for the Serbs in limits not: "He is the Greatest of all time, no matter how many Grand Slams he wins. Sorry, but if he can't beat me... And if you look at how little I train! In comparison, this is nothing."
Nadal's other side
Also for Rafael Nadal, against whom he has three out of six duels won, the 24-Year-old little nice words. "He is my antithesis. If he wins, he is always nice, but if I hit him, he was always very aggressive and has shown no respect for me. And people think he must be right, when he says something." Even less well he is talking to another Spanish Lefty, Fernando Verdasco. Him, Kyrgios referred to as "the most arrogant guy of all time". Quite different is the number 36 talks about Andy Murray, was, in his opinion, of much better players than Djokovic. Also, Stan Wawrinka, he had once provoked in Toronto is fierce, be okay. And Roger Federer, Kyrgios said: "He is the Biggest, with safety. His Talent is unique. How he moves, how he prepares, how he reads the game... And what he on all surfaces has been reached! Everyone is trying to model his game after him, especially Tsitsipas." Nevertheless, he will assume that Djokovic, Federer will still overtake you in the number of Major titles (Federer leads 20:15). He doesn't trust him even the Grand Slam, winning all four major tournaments in a year.
Kyrgios speaks so openly, because he can start with the Tennis-Circuit a little. Many were too self-important and nevertheless they did flatter him respect, he finds. "But it makes no Fun, when all of the like." He himself would for the loved ones around anonymously in Canberra with friends. He was talented, but just not made for this Pro tour. (Tages-Anzeiger)
