Nick Kyrgios Says He ‘Doesn’t Love Tennis’ After Straight Set Defeat to Andy Murray

Nick Kyrgios Says He ‘Doesn’t Love Tennis’ After Straight Set Defeat to Andy Murray

Andy Murray fans were overjoyed at the weekend when word spread of Novak Djokovic’s third round defeat to Sam Querrey.

Heck, even Judy Murray couldn’t hide her delight as she took in her son’s straight-set victory against John Millman on Saturday afternoon.

But while the Serbian’s shock exit from the largest event of the tennis calendar made Murray odds-on favourite to lift the famous gold trophy, the Scot was set up with a tough fourth-round clash against the ever vocal Nick Kyrgios.

The Australian had never beaten Murray heading into today’s clash but was full of confidence as he claimed to the media he himself could be crowned champion.

But Murray found his form and thrashed the 21-year-old 7-5, 6-1, 6-4 to reach the quarter-final where he will play Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Wednesday.

Defeat to the second best tennis player in the world isn’t the most devastating thing that could happen to a tennis professional, however, Kyrgios has now admitted that he “doesn’t love the sport, but doesn’t know what else to do” according to the Guardian.

Kyrgios was quoted as saying:

“It was a good first set, the rest of the match was pretty pathetic. I was really comfortable out there in the first set and I believed I could win the match but after I lost the first set I felt like I had a mountain to climb.

“I’m really soft still. When things get tough I am a little bit soft. I don’t really love the sport but I don’t know what else to do. I woke up this morning and played computer games. Is that the greatest preparation? I don’t know.”

We now can’t wait to see out Scottish, sorry, British Andy Murray romp his way to glory.
