Nick Kyrgios has to come back some debts. So much So, that in the US, a TV commentator called for a lock for the Australians. The Miami Open, a huge tennis event in the women's and men's tour run, and as Kyrgios with the American Taylor Fritz in the double was eliminated, he called the referee a "fucking disgrace".
on The Internet, in turn, the 23-Year-old over Angelique Kerber made fun. The German had lost to Bianca Andreescu and the canadian hands zugemault, she was the "biggest Drama Queen". Later, congratulated Kerber, the 18-Year-old is still on Twitter, what took Kyrgios to the occasion, to write behind Kerbers Tweet: "Bro, you said she was a Drama Queen and post now." He's released Smileys with a Laugh, watery eyes.
In his third-round singles against Dusan Lajovic Kyrgios fought with a Fan who provoked him, until he was discharged. In addition, Kyrgios showed for the first time, a blow that hardly anyone uses, and for many debates: a mark-up from below.
Federer: "It's a long shot to make the
" After all, the rules in the latter case, has Kyrgios on his side. Point 16 of the "ITF Rules of Tennis," the etiquette of the Tennis world Federation, defined in any way, with which technique a Ball by a charge over the network to be transported. A player simply needs to stand behind the base line, release the Ball and hit him before he touches the ground. Against none of these conditions Kyrgios had failed, as he 6:3, 6:1, not once, but twice from waist level by forehand push served. Both times he made the point; for the first Time by ACE, because of the surprised Serb delivery not only to the front. The second Time, because the Serbian thought, Kyrgios do the Trick twice. Well. The question is now being discussed, is not the legality, but: Is the premium of down unsportsmanlike or tactically clever?
for The first Time in an important Match, Kyrgios used the forearm-serve in February in Acapulco. Rafael Nadal, one of the Holy sizes, was his opponent. Kyrgios made the point with his tamper attempt, defeated the Spaniards, the accused Kyrgios of disrespect. Kyrgios, however, not or poorly thought cool, it is a matter, so to turn that the opponent can reach the Ball. And Nadal standing far back when you Return. It wasn't long since he found a well-known proponent – Roger Federer ruled: "The forearm is definitely a tactic. Especially when guys hug the fence. Therefore, you should be ashamed not to try it." Why is it more trying? "If you play on the big stage in front of an audience," said Federer, "it is daring to do that." No coincidence surely, that a frontier worker as Kyrgios dared.
Anderson: "forearm-premiums are unsportsmanlike"
The impact from below has, in any case, the debate clearly an image problem. One of the most famous strikes was a Schnibbler in the opening Game. In 1989, the 17-year-old Michael Chang from the USA twirled in the French Open, his serve spontaneously from the bottom of the box. Ivan Lendl, one of the most Cunning of his time, was so perplexed that he was out of counters. Stunned, the audience laughed on whether the chutzpah Chang's, had concocted a mixture of physical weakness and impertinence of this variant. He won the second round and won the title. A Trend he not triggered, however, the number of imitators remained manageable until today.
"You don't look a bit stupid if it doesn't work out," said Federer is one of the barriers in the implementation. Which, moreover, is not so easy, as the Wimbledon Finalist Kevin Anderson said: He would only turn to it from below, if he could do it perfectly. You hit Yes to soft, is the Ball in the net. And wide, thrashes the opponent the Ball into the box. "It's funny", was the South Africans continued, "that there is a unwritten law, that is: forearm premiums are unsportsmanlike." In fact, it is considered a matter of course, always from the top. As the Czech Tomas was Berdych of the bottom hit and the ACE, denied him by the referee not the point. "I suppose this is one of those things that are not accepted by the tennis world," said Anderson, now years later, General.
At the Miami Open, there has been, moreover, a second Service variant that came to be but out of fatalism. Robin Haase-positioned one Meter behind the baseline. The Dutchman made the point. But since it was 1:6 in the Tiebreak of the first set against Nikolos Bassilaschwili. The Georgians won in two sets.
The Australians, in Miami not only because of his forearm premiums for conversation:
