Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios is known for his outspoken personality and trick shots in the tennis world. On the other hand, the 25-years-old Canberra born was fined for his on-court misconduct on several occasions. However, the French tennis star Benoit Paire opined that Nick is such a right person and said loves his craziness.
On the Racquet Mag site, the 31-years-old Benoit Paire recently wrote several things on his account, especially the Frenchman describing former World No.13 Nick Kyrgios.
“In my opinion, that’s why guys like Nick Kyrgios and Fabio Fognini are doing a lot of good for tennis. I like their insanity. Kyrgios, when he played Antoine Hoang in the second round of the US Open in 2019, it was on a show court, and it was full.”, Paire noted.
Nick Kyrgios is often in the media headlines for several wrong reasons. Still, he is continuously described as box office because of his aggressive playing style, predominantly, his serve, tweener, forehand, and backhand.
Benoit Paire continued, “We criticise his attitude and say that he insults everyone, he has no drive and that he doesn’t want to play, but at the end of the day, everyone will watch him. Folks know that something is going to happen.”
“His(Nick Kyrgios) Matches Are Always A Show”: Benoit Paire
Australian has a 6/11 win-loss record against the trio of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic.
Paire also emphasised a locker room experience with Kygios at the 2019 Wimbledon, where Nick lost his second-round match against Rafael Nadal after back-to-back tiebreakers.
The Frenchman added, “His matches are always a show. One day, at Wimbledon in 2019, I walked into the locker room. Kyrgios had just lost to Nadal in the second round. He had barely gotten off the court. I saw him order three beers and gulp them down. Then he left for his press conference. No big deal!”
“Nick, he’s a good guy, sincere, doesn’t worry much and makes good money. The Australian media will tear him apart, but he stays the same. He just doesn’t give a damn.”, Paire concluded.
