Gentle as Federer also profanity, excellent as Nole also fake injuries, and Nadal repeatedly sued for time. Therefore, it is not strange that young players use a lot of tricks.
The side story at the Montreal Masters recently created a wave in the public opinion when young player Nick Kyrgios (Australia) transformed into a victory by affecting psychologically Wawrinka seniors with a shocking sentence.
“Kokkinakis used to sleep with his girlfriend. It’s a shame to talk to you, my colleague,” Nick Kyrgios said of Wawrinka’s girlfriend, in order to provoke defending champion Roland Garros when the two players changed course during the battle. in the second round, the Rogers Cup tennis tournament.
This is not the first time Kyrgios has been punished for repeated mouths and bad behaviors on the pitch since the beginning of the year. However, there is still no sign that the player will stop the clutter to focus more on his career.
In tennis, words of encouragement, trickery, or athletes showing their attitude on the field are not uncommon. Even the top players in the world, like Novak Djokovic, have been famously clever when they often fake injuries and call in medical staff to slow down the opponent’s pace during intense matches.
Tennis player Rafael Nadal did the same when he played against Warwinka in the 2014 Australian Open final.
