Drama is never away from Nick Kyrgios be it anywhere in the world. The Australian returned to the tour for the first time since Australian Open 2022 play in 2022 Indian Wells Masters both in singles and in doubles. Despite being unlucky enough to miss out on the title both times, he showed that he is certainly not done with the sport and is still one of the most talented players.
Kyrgios was stopped by the eventual runner-up Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals in an exciting match that lasted almost 3 hours. While Nadal came out on top, the Australian also had his moments. During the game, however, Kyrgios gave a stunning response to one of the spectators seated behind him who was trying to disrupt the Australian between his serves.
After discovering the legendary actor Ben Stiller in the stands during the match, Kyrgios replied to the viewer: “Are you good at tennis? Exactly. Then why are you talking?” As the crowd erupted in laughter, Nick added another comment. Nick pointed to Stiller and said: “Shall I tell him how to behave? No.”
Nick later tweeted his conversation with the ball boy, whom he accidentally intended to hit while throwing his racquet. To that tweet, Stiller Nick responded by saying, “Great match today.” Nick replied to the actor: “Thanks, maybe we can work together on the next film. I think I have some acting in me, how’s your tennis?”
Ben wasn’t done with the Australian, going on to say: “I could use some help on my serve but maybe a new doubles team? We can discuss that on set…” to which Nick promptly replied, “Did.”
Nick Kyrgios climbs 30 spots in the leaderboard
The run to the quarterfinals brings Nick closer the top 100, a big jump of 30 places. The Australian was ranked 132 before the start of the tournament and is now ranked 102 in the world. With another appearance in the 2022 Miami Masters where he was wildcarded into the peloton, Nick could break into the top-100 again.
