Aussie Great Reacts To Latest Nick Kyrgios Disgrace

Aug 16, 2019


Australian tennis legend Mark Woodforde says it is “bitterly disappointing” to see Nick Kyrgios’ latest on court outburst.

Kyrgios has been fined $113,000 USD for five separate incidents -- including abusing an umpire -- during a match at the Cincinnati Masters.

Woodforde has told FIVEaa Breakfast:

“The possibility’s there of winning major tournaments and possibly reaching the top of the mountain, ultimately number one. But he won’t achieve those goals when he behaves in the manner that he displayed last night.

“It’s extremely disappointing because he showed so much promise”

“What was frightening for me was the kids after the match leaning over the fence around centre court wanting Kyrgios’ shoes, they were wanting the mangled rackets… that shouldn’t be happening after the display he displayed. That to me is troubling. That’s not the model for young kids…

“This is a habit now for Nick. It’s not really getting any better… the level of his outbursts are starting to get a little bigger and it’s disappointing.”
