Nick Kyrgios: 'It's always hard to be me'

Nick Kyrgios is one of the most talented tennis players on the circuit. When we talk about Nick, we are not only talking about a very talented tennis player, but also probably the most talked about player on the tour. The tennis player is very active on social networks and often leaves messages or posts that cause a lot of discussion, and once again he has become the subject of a particular debate.

Nick posted an Instagram Stories where he shared the percentage of points won in 2022 and Nick came in second with 53.40% points won. Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic finished first in this particular statistic, with 54.70% of the points.

However, Kyrgios has impressed and impresses that his numbers are superior in this field to those of the world number one, Carlos Alcaraz, and those of champions like Rafael Nadal and Daniil Medvedev, all of them (albeit slightly) behind in the classification.

Along with this post, Kyrgios sent a cryptic but clear message: "If you don't like what I do but look at everything I do, well, you are my fans. Let's talk about it..." . A clear message, with a controversial vein, for all tennis fans.

In recent days, Kyrgios has been very contentious with his ATP ranking. In fact, the Australian tennis player has declared that the current classification is based on the regularity of a tennis player and not on his abilities.

The more tournaments you play, the further along you will be in the ranking. A theory, Nick's, that has received a lot of support on social media. Nick Kyrgios has lived in this 2022 the best season of his career so far. He started the year by winning the Australian Open doubles trophy, while at Wimbledon he made history by playing in the final against Novak Djokovic, letting it be known that the oceanic man has the game to reach the top and conquer the glory he is after.

Nick Kyrgios reflects on the pressure

One month before the start of the Australian Open (January 16 to 29, 2023), Nick Kyrgios spoke of the pressure that is sometimes difficult to bear even if he considers it "a privilege".

Excerpt from an interview given to Mats Wilander for Eurosport during the Diriyah Tennis Cup. “Being in the spotlight is not easy. It's always hard to be me. When I win a tournament or something of value, they always want more.

I'm never told, 'Okay, it's time to rest.' It's more like, 'Well, do it again and now' People will never have enough. From my point of view, I have achieved great things in this sport, considering where I come from. My parents arrived in Australia with nothing.

So I know I'm happy with that. I want to achieve more for myself, for my whole team, but not for the rest of the world."
