Following a stunning loss to Nick Kyrgios in Acapulco last night, Rafael Nadal was not pleased with the Australian.
“He’s a player who has enormous talent, could be winning grand slams or fighting for the top positions of the ranking, but there is a reason why he is where he is,” Nadal said. “He lacks respect for the public, the opponent and toward himself.”
During the match, Kyrgios won a point on an underhand serve, used two trainer visits and the post-match handshake was far from gracious.
Nadal did lead 6-3 in the final set tiebreak with three match points. And Rafa finished just 1-of-10 on break chances, 0-for-5 in the third set.
