Nick Kyrgios, the 27-year-old Australian tennis professional has cemented his position as one of the best players in the world currently. He has been enjoying the best season of his career so far. Kyrgios managed to reach the finals of Wimbledon recently and he also won the Citi Open in Washington.

The Australian also reached the quarter-finals of the recent US Open and won the Australian Open doubles title with Thanasi Kokkinakis as his partner. Kyrgios has always been one to capture the headlines with his antics both on and off the court. There is no doubt that the Australian is one of the most entertaining players in the world currently.

Being entertaining, Kyrgios is one of the best on the court as well. A fan on social media recently brought up that only Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal are the two players who are ranked higher than Kyrgios whilst playing fewer tournaments (8 and 10 respectively). Kyrgios has played 12 tournaments this season.

Reacting to this information, Kyrgios wrote on his Instagram story, “I don’t have to play an entire schedule. I’m chill at 12 events.”
