Kyrgios charges against the ‘coaching’

Australian Nick Kyrgios lashed out at the ‘coaching’ rule, the help of coaches to players during matches, which will be introduced on a trial basis by the ATP after Wimbledon.

The tennis player from Canberra, who doesn’t have a coach, responded on social networks to Patrick Mouratoglou, former coach of Serena Williams and who now works with Simona Halep, and that defended a practice that has been used “for decades in this sport”.

“I completely disagree. One of the peculiarities that only this sport has is lost. The player has to manage the match by himself. That’s the beauty of it,” explained Kyrgios, who also defended the lower-ranked tennis players. “What happens if a top player plays against a lower profile player that a coach can’t afford?”he added.

Kyrgios has played the Mallorca tournament these days, where he reached the round of 16, but had to drop out of the tournament due to an abdominal problem so as not to compromise his chances at Wimbledon.
