Nick Kyrgios Knocked Out Of Wimbledon At The Hands Of Milos Raonic

19 year old Aussie tennis prodigy Nick Kyrgios’ dream run at Wimbledon has ended this morning, blasted out of the quarter finals at the hands of big serving Canadian eighth seed Milos Raonic. Coming off an astonishing upset victory over world number one Rafael Nadal, the 6’4” poster child for multicultural ‘Straya who was the youngest player in the tournament succumbed 6-7 (7-4), 6-2, 6-4, 7-6 (7-4), capping off what he would later describe as “the best couple of weeks of my life”.   

“It’s been the best couple of weeks of my life,” he said. “Never did I think that I was ever going to make quarter-finals of Wimbledon and beat Nadal on Centre Court…It’s all happened pretty fast.”

Far from resting on his laurels sixteen shots deep and shirtless on the main stage of Sin City: The Nightclub, the bizarro Bernard Tomic admitted that improvements to strength, match conditioning and other aspects of his game would be required to advance further in the future. Things he will no doubt follow through on. 

“It’s been a special week for me but at the same time, it’s been so exhausting,” Kyrgios said. “I’ve got nothing left to give. That’s what grand slams do to you…If I was to go further, I’m going to have to get stronger…I’m going to have to get so much better in so many areas.”

Raonic now advances to the semi-finals to compete against a guy who pretty much lives at Wimbledon, Roger Federer.  

Nick Kyrgios now advances straight to the top of the strawberries and cream line every talent evaluator’s list of the best young players in the world. 

You did us proud young man.
