Kygrios gets a bye into the final

Worth celebrating just to imagine the utter froth the purists are in right now.

Blokes up for assault and people love him. Innocent until proven guilty and all that but for the most part he comes across as a whiny man child.

The love in for him I find just bizarre

He’s a great Tennis player for one, and to me seems like a decent guy, if a tad highly strung. Made some mistakes early on in his career, but seems to have moved on.

I like him.

I can’t comment on the assault, have absolutely no idea if there is any merit so won’t cast judgement.

He will be a breath of fresh air in a final, similar to Agassi and if he can be forgiven for becoming getting into Meth then Kygrios can be forgiven for being petulant early in his career.

I suspect the occasion will be too much for him if it’s Djokovic, it will be a box office final whom ever he faces - that I will miss as we are in France just now

Not only is he up in court next month to see if he gets convicted/sentenced for assaulting a woman, there is also a lot of talk about some underage stuff making it to the courts after this case.

Apparantlty the evidence in the assualt case is as clear cut and obvious as that which got Greenwood caught.

Baffles me how him and others in sport like him get lauded as some sort of great lads who puts up two fingers to the establishment.

Can think of a number of boxers and MMA guys who have come out with openly racist, homophobic and xenophobic stuff (and no not actually thinking of Tyson Fury this time in case Spud Gun comes at me with a shiv ) and people trip over themselves to call them great guys who say it like it is.

You go after those weaker than you, or with less of a public voice than you in a racist, sexist, bigoted, homophobic or xenophobic manner then you are cowardly scum.

You go laying your hands on women or children and you are scum.


Usually these pricks have very think skins as well when anything is said back to their faces.


Cult of personality my fucking arse.

The police department that arrested and charged him seems to think so and are keen for it to get to court.

I've never really watched Kyrgios before - he's fuckin nuts! Zero mental filter. He's Happy Gilmore.

He doesn't half ask for a lot of the crowd to be thrown out for someone that doesn't like snitching line judges

Is it too early to wonder if Emma Raducanu is seasonal?
