I used to the controversies and without mincing words, the Australian Nick Kyrgios does not dodge any of the darts that his own colleagues sometimes throw at him. Last year it happened with Dominic Thiem, coincidentally his next opponent in the third round of the Australian Open, in full realization of the no less controversial Adria Tour.
“Djokovic, Zverev and Thiem think it’s a joke, they partying in a global pandemic. Loved people and relatives dying “, he wrote at that time in his account Twitter who today occupies the 47th position of the ATP ranking.
Little more than half a year later, both will seek the pass to the round of 16 of the first big tournament of the year in what will be their second personal confrontation. It does little to contextualize the game that Dominic Thiem took: It was six years ago in Nice. In addition to being in brick dust, they only played seven games since the Australian withdrew from the second round match when he fell 4-3.
This time the conditions will be totally different, with the public included, fully supporting one of the greatest local hopes. Will the bad boy of Canberra do his thing again?
