'Rafael Nadal hoped that the scans weren’t...', says former ATP ace

‘Rafael Nadal hoped the scans weren’t…’, says former ATP ace

Nick Kyrgios has always been considered one of the most talented tennis players on the circuit. However, the 27-year-old Australian has never been able to make the most of his talent, often conditioned by his personality. Nick has alternated big wins (being one of the few to win all the Big Threes) with crushing defeats, and in recent years the situation has gotten worse.

Further tennis allegations from his ex-girlfriend Chiara Passari have complicated things, but now Nick seems to have found his full maturity. In the final, which he won (also with a bit of luck) at Wimbledon, Nick achieved the best result of his career, a result that, although it won’t bring him points, could definitely go down in tennis history.

In front of him will be tough rival Novak Djokovic, a man who has dominated the tennis scene for years, especially on grass. Kyrgios has spoken about his struggles several times throughout his career, and one of Nick’s various problems was obesity, which he suffered from at a young age.

At the Tennis Majors microphones, Kyrgios made the following statement: “Every time I see that photo (of Nick being quite overweight at 9) it’s unbelievable. I look like Manny from Modern Family and it makes me laugh to think about that kid can be me

I think my example should serve all children who have been marginalized and who have been surrounded by negative thoughts at some point. I am expressing the idea that if you believe in yourself, you can do anything. I always believed in myself, I never lost faith, even though a lot of people doubted my chances.”

Kyrgios reached the final thanks to Rafael Nadal’s withdrawal, and the Australian commented on the Spaniard’s decision: “I couldn’t talk to Rafa, I found out everything at dinner, before his press conference.

My first feeling was disappointment. I focused all my energy on facing him, on my game tactics, on the emotions of being on the court and everything else. It was not an easy decision for him to make.”

Roddick talks about Rafa Nadal

Andy Roddick also disagreed with their statement, stating that Rafael Nadal was right to try to win the match in the hope that he could recover in time for the semi-finals.

The former US Open winner added that Nadal’s job was not to “protect other players”. “No… he should have tried to win and then hoped the scans weren’t too bad and he could recover,” Roddick wrote. “They weren’t and he can’t. It’s not his job to protect the other players.”
