I mean, he has had to deal with Nick Kyrgios.
Not fired, but they definitely come to blows with each other.
His box should get lifetime achievement awards for putting up with his shit
I think he is making a valid point
Agreed. He definitely deserves coach of the year.
Never a truer statement
He's certainly had a battle getting his player motivated and remaining on the court
Proper not the onion title
This is peak Kyrgios in an interview
It’s the hardest job in tennis as well being Kyrgios’ coach so he has a point
Honestly don’t think any other coach could have coached Kyrgios to the Wimbledon final so he’s got a point
Yeah not because of the coaches tho. NK has the talent to do it but only he himself can decide if he wants to do the work
I'm that meme of the guy opening his mouth to complain then closing it, unhappy but lacking what to say in response lmao
I don't like him, but you gotta give him credit.
It's pretty incredible he self-manages given his fragile ego, but at times people like that can only be handled by themselves. They just don't listen.
Australian Open champion, Wimbledon runner up, made it back to top-20, Aussie #1, qualified for the WTF, and bromance with Novak. Not a bad year at all!
Oh wow didn't notice he is Aussie#1. Insane that he hasn't flexed it so far. "I am the best player in my country" or some statement like that.
He actually has. I remember he said something like I'm the best singles and doubles player in Australia in an insta story I think.
He’s always #2 to me, slightly behind World #1 Lord Tomic
When are they going for their candlelit dinner?
*in doubles. That's the keyword
Champion. That's the keyword.
That is pretty funny.
Relax folks he's very clearly joking
I mean, not playing the semifinal definitely helps.
Despite everything, Nick would be a great serving coach
yes, but you also coached your self out of a proper career
He’s already had a career better than 99% of players
But talent more than 99.99% of them so still a waste
Give the award to his therapist.
Or his girlfriend for putting up with the box abuse
And the domestic abuse.
Should Ivanisevic be on the best coaches list? Coaching djokovic has got to be up there with easiest job in the world lol (jk in case it isn’t obvious, not throwing shade)
"Yes, Jim, but I am not easy to manage"
"I saved a life today. My own. Am I hero? I can't really say... but yes"
What’s his track record against Rafa? The former advanced due to the latter’s injury
I mean not many have a winning H2H against Rafa, but Nick did beat him the first time they played
Honestly where’s the lie lol
Not sure about coach, but definitely has my vote for teabag of the year and teabag of the decade
That tsitsipas match ?
A Kyrgios nomination would make about as much sense as the Ivanišević one!
Real talk if Kyrgios actually does end up getting a coach who actually works for him—-that coach should be the coach of the year
The narcissism with this guy is off the charts
he didnt say "/s" after his statement so clearly he wasnt being sarcasatic
I could have misinterpreted it, but this does seem like something Nick would say completely seriously doesn’t it?
Only because Rafa had to retire 💅🏼
Yeah he would have beaten Rafa though
Not a chance
If Rafa played injured, Kyrgios wins 💅
It's hard to say cause if the match against Zverev had kept on course, we'd probably be looking at the record for the longest match ever since the introduction of the fifth set tiebreaker. 3 hours in 2 sets goddamn.
Did I stutter? 😤
Lol I thought your comment was hilarious. I don’t get the downvoted. Some butt hurt kyrgios fans out there
Oh you know how they are here lmao the average IQ isn’t very high and people aren’t the brightest
So did federer?
I can't imagine a tougher player on the men's side to deal with. On the women's side I can think of 2 harder
I pity the coach for Nick Kyrgios lives inside his head rent free.
Can't get a point penalty for that...then again, it's Kyrgios.
Yea, fair point.
Well he ain't lying.
Yeah dealing with being a dick all the time and being mad with the whole world is probably exhausting
Never seen someone brag so much about being a runner up lol
Yeah but JCF coached Carlos to a US title, and no.1, and 2 masters titles so...
... or he coached himself out of a Hall-of-Fame career
