In an interview the former Wimbledon champion Goran Ivanisevic commented on Nick Kyrgios speaking on a bad note of Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. The Croat said: "These guys are 350 days a year together, you don’t need to talk badly about your colleagues.
Maybe you like somebody more or less but how someone is going to celebrate, I mean, who cares? In your mind your own things, you do what you do but you don’t talk badly about your colleagues. For me, it’s the only thing he should change.
Do your things when you play him, beat him and then you can laugh to him but don’t make comments, it’s not good. If I played him [and he’d said that about me] I would try to beat him but no I don’t think he would say that.
I never disrespect in any interview with any other player. He should not do that, that I don’t like. This is one big family every week there are different tournaments. Some days are better days, some are worse days. But how you’ll celebrate a victory or how you’re going to do this or that, who cares?" "When you want to beat somebody badly, then usually you lose.
With Nick you know he will be also motivated to beat them. It’s going to be interesting to see that match next time Rafa and Nick or Nole and Nick play. I would like him to see one Grand Slam that he goes from the first to the last point until the match at the end.
I guarantee you any day he can beat any player. He’s capable with his shots, he’s a good athlete, unbelievable serve, unbelievable forehand. He has everything."
