    Nadal wore 3/4 length shorts for years. Not sure if he still does.

    More so the pattern on them.
    Anyway, they work - dishing out a flogging to some poor qualifier.

    @Thunderstruck This would be the thread

    Yep im also not a fan of either of them @Paulo.
    And your most likely right Kramer, he may never have the right attitude or ticker to play at his peak for two weeks/7 matches...what a waste if thats how it pans out...
    Just to clarify.. u do or dont agree the hate is justified??

    As long as we are talking about what he does or doesn't do on the court(talking abt his opponent's partner, abusing umpires/spectators, tanking) then I agree the hate is justified. I was never a fan of some of the stuff Hewitt pulled and just because he was winning doesn't make it ok. Some of the hate for Kyrgios(think Dawn Fraser) is race related, you can't deny that and I don't condone it.


    couldnt give a rats about his ethnicity..tanking is a disgrace always will be..Who cares about what dopey Dawn said, just waffle from a dementing mind!!

    As for Hewitt yes he was somewhat annoying but he was mentally tough and NEVER dogged it ONCE..toughed it out 85/90 % fit for years ..what would limpD kyrgios do??? Throw in the towel in a heartbeat and has done already too often(altho Tomic is even better at that)

    Thats why he is "hated" by lots of people and that is fair imo.

    kid's in some fine form atm - Nick Kyrgios beats Novak Djokovic at Indian Wells to progress to quarter-finals

    Twice he has beaten the Joker recently i think but last time he lost to a relative no name next round..has to capitalize on opening up draws for himself but does appear to be on the right track at least(and i saw hewitt in his corner at this tournament that can only help is he coaching him?).

    As a side note his compadre Tomic has been spectacularly pathetic lately having dumped 6 or more 1st round matches consecutively plus dogging Davis cup duty last month.

    Doesn't try against no names, that's his problem

    The champ chopped up Nadal too in the last round, could be hard to beat...very interesting match today this one Tabtouch odds : Federer $1.57 Kyrgios $2.35

    Backtracking a match (but not detracting from Kyrgios beating him twice of late)I reckon Djokovic could be coming down a notch, turns 30 in May I think, has been SUPER hard on his body for 7/8 years..just a hunch...maybe same same Murray but I think the great Serb might be more mortal now and forever more..

    Highlights the fact that IF Kyrgios focuses hard and commits 100% he can be top 5 before the year is out...maybe by the US Open..eg..he has way more upside than Raonic, Wawrinka is ageing etc etc

    That was an anti clhmax, retired due to overnight illness...

    The only poisoning Nick has done Thunder is to the Aussie public!

  • ThunderstruckThunderstruck    4,536 posts
    Im trying not to bag him at the minute and give him the benefit of doubt but given his history its expected some scepticism may be floating around the traps LOL

    Good for Federer I reckon he will win this tournament now...
  • ThunderstruckThunderstruck    4,536 posts

    ^^ And win it he did from his bunny and compadre Stanley Wawrinka 6-4,7-5..A Grand Slam and a Masters tournament victory from 3 starts this year...

    not bad work from a 35 year old hey Nicky boy..

    Sure is Falc undoubtedly all class and playing as well as he has for 5/6 years too..
    He is a serious chance of winning another Slam this year!!
  • thefalconthefalcon    17,387 posts
    and he will retire as soon as he feels it is the right time...he is a legend..... ^:)^
  • ThunderstruckThunderstruck    4,536 posts
    Very good effort by Kyrgios narrowly beaten in a super tight 3 setter a few days ago..competed hard all the way.

    It was no disgrace losing to Federer who went on to win his third tournament from 4 starts this year.."just" the one grand slam and two Masters level trophies and a mere 3/3 in the best 3 tournaments of the year so far...a feat he last achieved 11 years ago, what a legend he continues to be.
  • hashhash    7,084 posts
    Love his replies, good to see a sport star / celebrity actually reading the comments then going one step further and replying like he does :))
  • ThunderstruckThunderstruck    4,536 posts
    Lmao so do i good stuff.

    Hope his mind is firmly on beating the Seppo's in the Davis cup starting tomorrow.That poof Tomic's off getting a new ticker somewhere :P

    @JohnA Wimbledon or the US Open are definitely winnable slams for Kyrgios but Murray and Djokovic make wake up from their slumber soon. Novak just doesn't have that killer instinct since marriage and parenthood.
  • ThunderstruckThunderstruck    4,536 posts
    OR..are the "big two" just tapering off their absolute peak by say 5 or 10% TRP?? both 29 turning 30 real soon and I think I may have commented before The Joker in particular has abused himself physically for the last 6/7 years now..this catches up on or burns out some athletes..don't knock a champ yes I know.

    VERY interesting times for the rest of this year for sure.

    Kyrgios has definitely improved his demeanour, Hewitt has been of great assistance no doubt..keeps his nose clean consistently and he is a top 5 player in waiting I don't think there is any doubt about that.

    Plus the great one will figure prominently in the rest of the slams this year too even the French imo, is all over Nadal confidence/skill wise.

  • The_Real_PetermanThe_Real_Peterman    192 posts
    @Thunderstruck If Nadal can get a 10th French Open that would be something. Deserved favourite given the top two are off their game and the form player on the circuit is not really at home on clay. Maybe there's another slam in the Stanimal?
  • ThunderstruckThunderstruck    4,536 posts
    Would be something great for sure.I just think Fed can go fairly deep in it maybe at least to the semi's and as we now know he has wound back the clock and is a previous 5 time finalist winning once??...do agree faster courts suit him more but I wouldn't write him off completely.

    Stanley in which tournament? French? not impossible I suppose ...Nadal's to lose I do agree

    Don't write off Stan. He shocked the world(for the 2nd time) when he beat Novak in the 2015 French Open final when everyone was talking about the calendar year slam. Remember Novak was up a break of serve  in the 5th set against Nadal in the 2013 semis only to lose 9-7. With the Spaniard out of the way in 2015 he was expected to roll right over Wawrinka. Stan also stopped him in 4 sets in last year's US Open final when a 9-4 underdog.
