Nick Kyrgios Says He’s Learned To Keep His Mouth Shut

After a month of controversy, what has Nick Kyrgios learned?

“Keep your mouth shut at times,” Kyrgios answered after a 4-set loss last night to Andy Murray in the US Open first round.

Kyrgios, who’s only 20, says he’s learning on the go as a pro, and he’ll get better. And he appreciates Murray’s support.

“I’ve had a really good relationship with Andy for a long time now,” Kyrgios said. “I’ve played him a lot. Never beaten him. I got a set off him today. I’m making progress. He’s always had nice things to say about me. We’ve had a lot of conversations on Twitter and stuff. Whenever I’ve needed something, I’ve come to him. I’ve sort of looked at a guy like him that’s a really good role model for everyone.”

Kyrgios and Murray will hook-up again after the US Open when he and Australia travel to Scotland to play Great Britain in the Davis Cup semifinals.

Any cricket fans on here will find this “advice” as hilarious as I do.
What an attention seeking idiot, and I’m not talking about Nick.

Nobody or very few like the scumbag so he’s trying to butter up Murphy for some support. 😩😏
