Kyrgios is still loved by a lot of kids in this country and there are still a lot of us out there that hope the penny will drop with him.
The reality is that men’s tennis in Australia is as weak as it’s ever been and Kyrgios is the only male player that has the talent to compete with the best. His record against the best players speaks for itself.
Like you though I just don’t think he has the professionalism to ever be anything more than a threat.
I’m not really somebody cares too much about whether they are Australian or not though. If I had the choice of watching Federer or Kyrgios I would choose Fed every day.
I just like watching good tennis and of all our tennis players only Kyrgios can produce it.
I do like the look of Popyrin though and hope he can continue to develop.
