Is it being confidence, swagger or something else entirely?
This is the interview that has all of Australia talking.
After beating Ivo Karlovic in four sets at the Australian Open yesterday, our hometown hero gave a post-match interview that has the whole nation up in arms.
“It was a good comeback from you in that fourth set… Lose this one and you’re into a fifth and anything can happen,” the interviewer said.
“That’s usually what happens when you lose the fourth set, you go into a fifth one,” Kyrgios responded.
Asked if his father was wearing his ‘lucky’ shirt, Kyrgios’ response was a little sassy: “Yeah, he’s got it on. I don’t know why he does that. I’m not big on karma or superstition.”
Is this tall poppy syndrome or was Kyrgios a little too sassy?
