Nick is through to the next round after a 6-7 6-3 4-0 win against Stan Wawrinka after the Swiss retired with a back injury in the third set and the match included some drama in the second set.
At 6-7 0-0 40-0 Nick is heard to be saying to Wawrinka…
“Kokkinakis banged your girlfriend, sorry to tell you that mate”
Comments like this are totally unacceptable and the ATP should do something about it! Kyrgios is a talented player but again it’s his behaviour which has made the headlines again! Nick currently doesn’t have a coach but is working with Lleyton Hewitt as his mentor..
Stan and his coach Magnus Norman have also tweeted their displeasure at the comments made by Nick during the match.
Seeds fall in Montreal!
A number of top seeds fell in Montreal yesterday with Gael Monfils, Gilles Simon, Tomas Berdych, Marin Cilic, Stan Wawrinka and Grigor Dimitrov all losing in the second round!
For all of these players it’s not the ideal preparation for the US Open in a couple of weeks time. The biggest surprised for me was Berdych’ 7-6 6-3 loss to Donald Young especially after being 4-1 up in the first set.
Seeds fall in Toronto (as well)
Lucie Safarova, Caroline Wozniacki, Ekaterina Makarova, Garbine Muguruza and Petra Kvitova all left in the second round yesterday in Toronto. Muguruza lost her first match since the Wimbledon final and Kvitova was beaten by former world number one Victoria Azarenka 6-2 6-3.
