Nick Kyrgios is a truly enigmatic Australian sporting figure
11 January, 2019, 16:29
Bernard Tomic and Nick Kyrgios went head-to-head for the first time in their careers at the Kooyong Classic Exhibition Event overnight, with the all-Australian contest bringing up some interesting moments.
While the encounter was largely played in good spirits, Tomic won the encounter 6-3, 6-4 in controversial fashion.
While bouncing a ball in the preparation for a regular serve Tomic flicked another ball between his legs that landed over the net and won the match, leaving Kyrgios laughing and shaking his head.
Australian tennis player Tomic didn't back down while describing how he feels about the balls used which will be used at the Australian Open this year.
Tomic's first set was nearly flawless, while Kyrgios, who has slipped to number 51 in the world, looked a little underdone and struggled to find some rhythm early on.
With his silky hands in superb touch, Tomic broke for a 3-1 lead and then steamed throught the first set.
Chastened somewhat, Tomic began to rebuild his game last season, winning his first title since 2015 at Chengdu last September and he appears to be carrying that momentum forward.
And Kyrgios was equally classy after the match as he paid tribute to Tomic, the former world number 17 who has clawed his way back up the rankings after falling as low as 243 in the ATP rankings.
Kyrgios, who was knocked out in the second round at Brisbane last week, was beaten 6-3, 6-4 by friend and fellow comeback candidate Bernard Tomic in an all-Australian battle.
The crowd-pleasing tune-up for the Australian Open was marked by good-natured competition.
He said: "I've made third or fourth round many times and lost to the great players of the world so my target is to make another quarter or maybe a semi if I can".
"I want to be as healthy and fresh as possible heading into next week. I count my millions", Tomic told the media last January.
