'Nick Kyrgios doesn’t win', says top analyst

Nick Kyrgios says he has only heard positive things about the Adelaide International as he is looking forward to preparing for the Australian Open in Adelaide. Kyrgios, 27, will make his Adelaide debut in January. In January, Adelaide will host ATP 250 tournaments in consecutive weeks.

Kyrgios will not compete in Adelaide 1, but will compete in Adelaide 2, which will start on January 9. This year Thanasi Kokkinakis, a close friend of Kyrgios, won Adelaide. Now, Kyrgios hopes to succeed in the tournament as well.

"I've heard great things about the tournament and the renovated venue at The Drive. I'm looking forward to playing in Adelaide. My good friend Thanasi put in a great performance last year in front of his home crowd and I look forward to the same success and support in January." said Kyrgios about playing in Adelaide.

This year, Kyrgios reached his first Grand Slam singles final at Wimbledon. Kyrgios enjoyed a great 2022 season and is the Australian player entering the Australian summer with the highest expectations. With that said, Adelaide Tournament Director Alistar MacDonald is excited to give Adelaide tennis fans the chance to see Kyrgios in action.

"It's a great opportunity for Australian fans to see Nick on track at The Drive. We all remember the Australian Open doubles final earlier in the year, in which he and Kokkinakis clinched victory; It's not every day that you get to see these Australian champions play on home soil.

We are urging tennis fans to secure their tickets to be part of the crowd and atmosphere this summer, rooting for one of the strongest fields we have seen here in Adelaide at our Tennis Festival, with strong competition at the court and incredible entertainment off it," MacDonald said of signing Kyrgios to play for Adelaide.

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. "And then you add in the puerility of some of his behavior.

John McEnroe was awful with some of his on-court behaviour but he won, so people began to give him this begrudging respect because his achievements superseded his outbursts. But this guy [Kyrgios] doesn’t win," the 55-year-old said.
