Sometimes, tennis just looks unfair, although probably not if your Nick Kyrgios.
I mean, imagine the crushing unfairness of having to face a 115mph forehand winner that didn’t even look like it was difficult to produce.
And by ‘imagine’, we of course mean ‘watch it for yourself below,’as that’s exactly what Kyrgios did to Stan Wawrinka.
Wawrinka won the match, though, and the controversial Australian was certainly magnanimous in defeat.
The two players famously had a very high-profile clash back in the 2015 Rogers Cup, which was held in Montreal that year.
Kyrgios told the Swiss during he match that follow Aussie and ATP Tour rival Thanasi Kokkinakis had relations with Wawrinka’s girlfriend Donna Vekic.
He received a heavy fine, but there was little signs of animosity after the this match.
“It’s great to see him back,” the 23-year-old said of Wawrinka.
“Matches like can give him positives … I can’t take any positives from that for me.”
