Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios posted some of his best moments on Instagram with a message apparently aimed at his critics and haters. Kyrgios has been one of the most criticized players since he arrived on the circuit, but the truth is that he is also one of the most popular and entertaining.
Tournaments love Kyrgios, as his matches are sold out and the atmosphere can be compared to that of Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer’s matches. Kyrgios, who recently found himself outside the top-100, received wildcards to Indian Wells, Miami and Houston.
Kyrgios’ matches at all three tournaments were sold out as tennis fans wanted to see the flashy Aussie in action. “You see the s… I have, I would hate too,” Kyrgios captioned his Instagram post. During his quarterfinal match in Indian Wells against Rafael Nadal, Kyrgios paused for a moment and had an amusing exchange with a booer.
“Are you good at tennis?” Bullyer: “No” Kyrgios: “Exactly, so don’t tell me how to play” *points to Ben Stiller in the audience* – “Tell him how to act?” Last week, Stiller explained the hilarious scene of Kyrgios and the bully.
“It was the weirdest thing, basically what happened was Nick Kyrgios, he talks to himself a lot during games and he kept saying, ‘Oh man hit your first serve, hit your first serve,'” Stiller told the host and comedian.

Latest update on Rafa Nadal
Alex Corretja believes it would be “risky” for Rafael Nadal to make his comeback from injury at the 2022 Madrid Masters.
The former World No. 2 declared that, while it would be great to see his compatriot play in Madrid and Rome, his priority is to be “perfect” for Roland Garros. “Maybe this time he’ll go a little bit more relaxed with less expectations and maybe he feels quite OK to do well, but I don’t think his goal should be [being] great for Madrid,” Corretja said.
“Madrid should be a transition to be perfect for Roland Garros. Even if we love Madrid and we love Masters 1000 [events] because they are very important on the tour, at this stage of his [Nadal’s] career we cannot lie believing that a Masters 1000 ‘At this stage of Rafael Nadal’s career we cannot…’, says former star will change his career or his life but another Major, I think it will.”
