Nick Kyrgios: "In doubles for more money, so my girlfriend is happy"

Nick Kyrgios continues to be controversial when it comes to making interesting statements. The Australian tennis player is one of the most in shape of the last period and despite the still not excellent ranking, the final at Wimbledon in a tournament without points has heavily penalized him, he is considered one of the final favorites for the victory of the tournament.

Bookmakers calculate him as the first favorite for the final victory after world number one Daniil Medvedev, Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz. Despite this Nick does not stop and continues to play non-stop, also actively participating in the doubles tournament, together with his great friend Thanasi Kokkinakis.

During the night the two beat the atypical couple made up of Hugo Gaston and especially Lorenzo Musetti. Initially the Italian-French duo won the first set but the two friends and partners reacted well and thus won the match.

Over two hours of play and some have pointed out to Nick that the doubles tournament could partially tire and lower Nick's ambitions for the singles tournament. However, Kyrgios' response in the post game surprised him, here are his words: "To actively play doubles as much? Honestly, I prefer twice as much compared to training, it's more money and my girlfriend is happy!"

Kyrgios' exuberance and attitude caused a lot of discussion during the tournament as well.

The tennis player received many choices for what happened in the match against Bonzi where, enraged by what was happening, he spat at his box. At the end of the match Nick explained: "I didn't expect such a complicated game.

He played at a very high level and in the fourth I found myself at 4-4 0-40. I'm happy to have closed and to have avoided the fifth set. , in a Grand Slam it is of fundamental importance to save some energy. They are those typical games where the main objective is to survive.

I'm relatively happy with my current fitness, I don't think I've played a bad game, but I obviously expect to do better and better. Playing perfectly is an unrealistic thing in this sport, we all know it perfectly. I have to lower my expectations a bit compared to Wimbledon, there are a lot of competitive players here. I have to accept that and lower my expectations."
