Nick Kyrgios: “Roger Federer, Nadal and Djokovic can’t live without tennis, I can”

After being engaged in mixed doubles, Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios gave an interesting press conference, dealt with many topics and shocked those present with quite important statements about his future.

In addition to this, the Australian player talked about his future and explained the differences between his way of conceiving tennis and that of legends of this sport such as Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

Several times Nick has been criticized for his attitude but in this tournament he seems to open up ‘with an open heart’ every time and confirms some of his character weaknesses. During the press conference Nick Kyrgios, as often happens to him, made people discuss with these statements: “I don’t love this sport as the legends love it.

“Roger Federer, Nadal and Djokovic can’t live without tennis, I can”

I feel that Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic could not live without tennis, it is their first love and I certainly do not criticize them but far from it. But I’m not like them, my first love was basketball but I couldn’t make my dream come true.

It is not easy for me to get up in the morning thinking every time about what I need to improve, many people have hated me and it is not easy but the truth is that I want to do something other than tennis and my goal is to retire at 28-29 years old and enjoy myself. life with partner, friends and my family.

I have every right to choose what to do with my life, I will certainly not play as many years as the Big Three did, then it is also true that in life you never know, maybe I will be here at 33 with a wild card.”

At the moment, however, Kyrgios is thinking of his commitments in this Wimbledon where he will face the Canadian Felix Auger Aliassime today in one of the most interesting matches of the day, a match that sees two possible outsiders as protagonists and certainly among the tennis players who are most at ease on a particular surface like grass.
