Nick Kyrgios has a reputation for being one of the most active players on the ATP Tour. Fans may be confident that any match featuring the Aussie will be interesting. He’s infamous for his rants and outbursts on the court, which usually result in a warning or a penalty. He also seems unconcerned about his rankings or tour performance, and he appears to play events on his own terms.

Many experts have criticised this over the years. To say the least, most conservative supporters find this behaviour rude. But, like many others, Corentin Moutet expressed that he believes Kyrgios’ behaviours are not out of the usual and that his reactions make him more normal.

Nick Kyrgios has the ability to achieve so much better, according to journalist Bertie Miller, but he acts like a tourist on the ATP tour, playing whenever he wants and skipping the rest of the tournaments. However, French player Corentin Moutet defended the Australian and he said that he was a gifted player who had been mocked unfairly.

“Shame on you @Berti_Milliard for qualifying as a “tourist”@NickKyrgios who beat Nadal, Federer, Djokovic, won 6 ATP, 1 final in 1000 and 1 GS in doubles. And who was 13th in the world in his sport. It’s time to realize that being 13th in the world is not trivial,” Moutet wrote on Twitter.

Miller also responded to this charge. He believes that the word “shame” is overly strong. And while this is unfair because he consistently backs Kyrgios, his behaviour demonstrates how unethical he is on the tour.
