What Did Nick Kyrgios Say?
Nick Kyrgios revealed that his main focus would be on adding more theatrics to the sport and making it more palatable for the average audience.
“I think just the little things, like adding music between points, change events, I think getting the fans more involved.”
Kyrgios even specified how the fans can be attracted to the sport and make them emotionally invested. He used the atmosphere around his Wimbledon match with Rafael Nadal as an example.
“I think there needs to be more rivalries. For instance, the match where I played Rafa at Wimbledon just recently. I think they kinda hyped that match up. It was like a boxing match, I think that was really cool.”
Finally, Kyrgios admitted that he might not be the best person to be given that amount of power.
“Actually, I don’t think I’ll be good with all that power, I’d make a lot of changes.”
What Is The Future For Nick?
Kyrgios will carry the Australian hopes at the Australian Open 2020. After the withdrawal of their top prospect Alex De Minaur, Nick Kyrgios remains their best chance.
