Numbers Show ‘Cheat Code’ Nick Kyrgios Is Actually A Freak

Nick Kyrgios has turned his Wimbledon campaign on its head with a “ridiculous” performance that has blown the world away.

Nick Kyrgios’ show has returned to Wimbledon – and this time you didn’t want to look away.

The wild Australian completely destroyed the number 24 seed Filip Krajinovic in the second round on Thursday evening and turned his tournament upside down.

The 27-year-old came out of a first round match that shocked the world and made him the most talked about player at the tournament – for all the wrong reasons.

Suddenly the world is talking about his tennis again.

Kyrgios has set up a dreamed-up third round showdown with number 4 Stefanos Tsitsipas or fellow Aussie Jordan Thompson.

He did it in style and with sheer firepower.

He took the 6-2 6-3 6-1 win in just 85 minutes.

The match statistics show what a bloodbath it was – and how ordinary Kyrgios made such a high-ranking player look.

He finished with 49 winners and only 10 unforced errors. He also had 24 aces and lost only three of his 40 points on the first serve. freaks.

Kyrgios got a kite with some dizzying composed tennis and completed the first set in just 26 minutes.

Kyrgios looked unbeatable and won his first 21 points on service.

The first point he lost on pre-match serve was in the third service game of the second set.

Kyrgios’ showing in the first two sets made Todd Woodbridge dream.

The Australian double legend said Kyrgios can reach the semifinals and beyond.

“This is the year that that opportunity awaits,” he told Channel 9.

“He is in the bottom half of the draw with Rafael Nadal and he has beaten him here before.”

British sports analyst Rory Flanagan described Kyrgios in a post on Twitter as a “cheat code”.

Tennis journalist Jose Morgado wrote: “This is just ridiculous of Kyrgios. My God”.

With the men’s draw open to him, at least one Australian corporate bookmaker brought Kyrgios to the fifth betting line to win the entire tournament.

He is seen as a potential threat after runs in the semi-finals in recent grass-court events in Stuttgart and Halle.

His performance on Thursday night reminded everyone how serious he is.

“I wanted to remind everyone that I’m pretty good,” he said with a straight face during his court interview.

“I couldn’t have played better.”

He famously defeated Rafael Nadal en route to the quarter-finals at the All England Club in 2014, but has never progressed past the fourth round since.

Despite his incredible form, there was previously a moment of high drama when a referee blunder threatened to trigger another textbook Kyrgios tantrum in the first set.

The moment the chair umpire allowed Krajinovic to challenge a linesman’s call after he had already gone through his groundstroke.

Kyrgios had to teach the umpire about the rules.

“You can’t argue with that,” he said.

“What are you talking about? It doesn’t matter if it was out, you already called the game. It doesn’t matter. You can’t do that.”

Woodbridge said on TV commentary that it was a “moment of terror”.

“No, no, no – the referee made a mistake there,” he said.

Kyrgios is still facing a penalty – likely a fine – from the tournament for the incident of spitting at spectators he believes were disrespectful during his first round win.

Heading for a five-set win over Paul Jubb on Wednesday morning, Kyrgios labeled a line judge a “snitch” with “no fans” and argued repeatedly with the chair umpire.

The Canberran continued to spit fire during his post-match press conference — where he ate pasta in between replies — refused to apologize for his behaviour, redoubled his accusations against misbehaving fans and denied having any sympathy for officials.

He was widely beaten in the tennis world and global media personality Piers Morgan called him a “pig” on Thursday
