Wimbledon: Let’s celebrate Nick Kyrgios’ honesty: Even he didn’t expect this day to come. A talented and enthusiastic Australian is Wimbledon’s semi-finalist.
Kyrgios has been the first unseeded bottom man to reach the Final Four at the All England Club since 2008. For him, it’s an efficient tennis brand suppressed by 6-4, 6-3, 7. -6 (5) victory over Christian Garin on Wednesday’s first court.
“I thought my ship had set sail,” said a 27-year-old woman. But I’m really proud of how I came back here. “
Kyrgios, who ranks in 40th place, is attracting more attention for his actions on and off the court than his skill with a racket. His match against 26-year-old unseeded Garin from Chile came Kyrgios the day after Australian Canberra police to face a general assault allegation caused by something that happened in December. He said he was planning to appear in the canberra.
After his first victory at Wimbledon last week, Kyrgios was fined $ 10,000 for spitting in the direction of a fuss spectator.
His third-round victory over fourth-seeded Stefanos Tsitsipas was as controversial as possible, and Kyrgios was fined an additional $ 4,000 for audible obscenity. Later, Tsitsipas called him “bullying” and “evil.”
It’s worth noting how well Kyrgios is playing. In particular, his serve is the best in the game, exceeding 130 mph. He hit 17 aces against Garin and broke only once. In his first game, he fell in love.
His big forehand is great, but it’s almost unconventional about Kyrgios. As an example, “I don’t have a coach,” Kyrgios said with a smile. “I will never put such a burden on anyone.”
In Friday’s semi-finals, Kyrgios will face second-seeded Rafael Nadal or 11th Taylor Fritz, who were competing on the center court on Wednesday. The other semi-finals are No. It will be the No. 1 Novak Djokovic for 9Cam Norrie.
In the women’s semi-finals on Thursday, 2019 champion Simona Halep will face 17th-placed Elena Rybakina and third-placed Ons Jabeur will face unseeded Tachiyana Maria.
Halep defeated America’s No. 20 Amanda Anisimova 6-2, 6-4 to move forward, and Rybakina returned to defeat Ajla Tomljanovich 4-6, 6-2, 6-3. ..
