Nick Kyrgios He is always the protagonist. For better or worse.

This week I came to Acapulco as a brand new tournament champion played in 2019. Dear people, the Australian needed a good performance in Mexico to defend the ATP points achieved 365 days ago.

And it wasn't like that.

In the first round and after lose the first set (6-3) before the French Ugo Humbert, Kyrgios left the match for lesin. He sat on the bench, put the racket in his backpack and began to drink water while the public booed him.

Subsequently, already in the press room, asked about the fan whistles when he announced his abandonment for injury, the Australian was as direct as ever: “I don't give a shit“.

“I tried to play but I'm injured. During this week I did interviews for the media, I tried to give the fans some tennis … And are they disrespectful? Honestly, I don't give a shit. “

His abandonment leaves the stands of Acapulco without a interesting confrontation against Rafa Nadal, who beat Pablo Andjar 6-3 and 6-2.
