“You got NRL players and NFL players, you know getting into general crimes and doing things that are not as, you know, you would look at that and and say it’s disgusting behaviour but because in tennis, you know all the cameras are on that one person… it’s generally a bigger sport, gets televised and it’s wrong, like it’s all wrong but it just comes out of perspective,” said Kyrgios.

Kyrgios pinpointed that since the cameras are always on an individual in tennis and even their minute details became an issue, people don’t find tennis players committing a lot of crimes or coming under many controversies.
