The fact that Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios has admitted that he is enjoying playing tennis is a cause for celebration across the sport today.
The undoubtedly talented 22-year-old has wowed long-suffering Australian tennis fans this week, despite losing his maiden Masters Series decider to Grigor Dimitrov – but declared he was “just happy being out there” after losing 6-3 7-5 to Dimitrov in Cincinnati.
“Where I was three weeks ago, I wasn’t in a good place at all,” the refreshingly positive Kyrgios said.
However, the Canberra-boy’s new positive, well-mannered attitude has proven to be too much for some of the nation’s long-suffering tennis loyalists.
“I told you he’d come good” roars an emotional Western Queensland man and Kyrgios believer, Rod Slavic (55).
“It doesn’t matter if he’s lost, he’s showing some good signs of good blokeness”
Rod is comforted by his daughter as he cries tears of joy during the light night press conference broadcast.
“He’s pulling a Lleyton. His bad boy days are behind him”
“He’s coming good, fuck ya!”
