Nick Kyrgios’ concern about the pandemic is undeniable and does not appear to have an expiration date.
In a recent interview with the Today Show, the Australian replied about his participation in the European tournaments in September: “It is very unlikely that he will play in Europe. Almost none to be honest. I think I’m going to use this time to stay home. “
“I am going to respect everyone who really tried not to do anything wrong during this time, tried to isolate themselves and tried to keep nobody else from getting sick. So I am going to use this to be with my family, my home or my friends. And I’m going to act responsibly and wait until I think there are better circumstances to play, “he added.
For a time, Kyrgios urged the tennis world to take the pandemic seriously. He was critical of events like the Adria Tour and even called the US Open “selfish” for going ahead with the event. Therefore, his drop from European events would not be a surprise.
Tennis fans would have loved to see Kyrgios on a court. For now they must wait.
