Nick Kyrgios kicks up a fuss

Nick Kyrgios’ words inherent in the decision to exclude Russian tennis players from Wimbledon certainly did not go unnoticed: the statements were commented on by thousands of users on social media.

“I honestly don’t think it was a good idea. Medvedev is the best we have right now in our sport-the words reported by Eurosport. “Other players, like Rublev or Khachanov, are also important young people for the growth of tennis. Personally, as a competitor and as a person who wants to play against them, I am disappointed by their absence. It is strange that Medvedev is not here. We all know what he is capable of doing. They wanted to play, they wanted to participate.”

“As for the points, I don’t play for that. As a kid, when I watched Wimbledon and wanted to play there, I didn’t think about ranking points, I thought about playing the most prestigious tournament in the world. There are people who would rather play a Challenger this week. When I am sitting with my children in the future, I will not be proud to say that I played a Challenger instead of Wimbledon. I will always choose to play Wimbledon,” concluded the Australian.
