Ashleigh Barty has won the Newcombe Medal for the fifth consecutive time, an award given by Tennis Australia to its best representative. The former WTA number one decided to retire at 25 right after winning the Australian Open in early 2022.
"There is no right or wrong path. This is my path and this is the perfect time to announce my retirement. It's difficult, but I'm happy with the choice. And I'm ready to leave tennis," Barty wrote in an emotional post on your social accounts.
Considering the premature departure of his compatriot and his achievements this season, Nick Kyrgios did not accept 'defeat' willingly and sparked controversy through his Instagram profile. "Without respect. Me! # $%", the Australian wrote bluntly.
Reading Kyrgios's comment with surprise, some tennis fans condemned his words and expressed different opinions on the net. "A decent person would have posted the same photo and congratulated Ash. They would have written something about how Barty has made Australia proud and wished him well.
But of course Nick is selfish and a c...... and. This big baby needs to grow up," wrote an anonymous Reddit user. "Not a bad boy, just an irritated crybaby," the comments read. And again: "I doubt top tennis players would post a post dedicated to the award to create controversy." and not to congratulate the winner.
He is an insecure tennis player." The native of Canberra closed his year at the Atp Finals where he played doubles with Kokkinakis to officially close his 2022 on the professional circuit. The oceanic man has already returned to action at the Diryah Tennis Cup in Saudi Arabia, where He played doubles and singles matches.
Kyrgios won the Australian Open in doubles and reached his first Slam final at Wimbledon in 2022. The one who put an end to his dream on the grass of the All England Club was Novak Djokovic, who triumphed in four sets and conquered the Slam number 21 of his career.
Simon Jordan slams Kyrgios
English businessman and Talksport host Simon Jordan slammed Nick Kyrgios and called him a silly brat. “Nick Kyrgios is a remarkable mercurial talent, but doesn’t actually win very much.
He’s been to a Grand Slam quarter-final and a final, he’s 27, he hasn’t won a Slam, and there have been great Australian players in the past, Pat Cash, Pat Rafter, Lleyton Hewitt, who actually won things.
So while he has got this remarkable talent, I think they [Australia Tennis and media] disrespect him because he respects himself with the waste of his talent at times," Jordan said.
