Great start to the year for Nick Kyrgios, winning the Brisbane International.

Sydney International has also just started.
Going down to Sydney tomorrow night for the Sydney Fast 4 tournament. (an exhibition event). Should be a cracker.
Great venue down there at Sydney Olympic Park as well.

my post back in the original tennis thread in 2006...

We have probably heard too much about him but for the wrong reasons. Possibly too much pressure on him at such an early age?
I do feel sorry for him and I do think he needs to seek professional help. I'd forget about tennis for the moment. Get your head right, mentally & emotionally.

well if he is not in a good place mentally , going on that stupid tv show will turn out to be a really poor decision because now everyone is up him. I think he has had a taste of the temptations in life and lost the desire. No way you can compete with the big boys without the desire & determination to get to the top. Maybe he doesnt have the ticker to reach that level, which makes him a normal person pretty much.

Huge win for Thanasi Kokkinakis over Federer in Miami:

The Kokk has always had this potential, but injuries have curtailed his young career to date, so this is a big win in a Masters 1000 level event.

Wimbledon final tonight in the Mens, hoping Novak Djokovic wins, but will be happy for South African Kevin Anderson if he gets it as well.
Going to be a long night watching tennis and soccer.
Serena Williams just came up short in the Womens.
