When will Nick Kyrgios break through in the majors?
That is what the world has been asking for years now, but an answer has not been forthcoming.
The brightest spark in Australian men’s tennis is also a loose cannon, prone to misfire, mischief and outright malfunction.
Yet every year there is a swell of optimism around Kyrgios and his chances of making an impact in the grand slams.
Nowhere is this more evident than in the outright betting for the Australian Open – the first major on the tennis calendar.

Can Nick Kyrgios win the Australian Open?
Ability is not the question. Kyrgios has all the shots and plenty more you won’t find in the textbook. He is quick, effortlessly powerful and boasts a flair for the extraordinary.
The point of contention is whether Nicky possesses the application required to beat, and to become, the very best in the world. He is also prone to injury and is not the kind of character who plays through pain for the sake of a lost cause.
Is Kyrgios good enough? Yes, without doubt. Does he want it enough? Probably not.

More about Nick Kyrgios
- Nick Kyrgios has quickly become one of the most recognisable and polarising figures in tennis today.
He entered the sport with a a bang and quickly became one of the best players to watch.
The dominance of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic has been somewhat astounding and the freshness Kyrgios brings to tennis has been heralded by many. While he has not broken through for a major, most pundits are predicting it is a matter of when, not if.
Kyrgios has been on the tour since 2012, but it wasn’t until his 2014 debut at Wimbledon that people began to stand up and take notice, when he made it through to the quarter finals.
Since then Kyrgios has shown glimpses of becoming a true prodigal tennis talent, but those glimpses have been marred by a string of controversies. He has been accused and banned for tanking, First at Wimbledon and then the straw that broke the camels back, the 2016 Shanghai Rolex Masters. The young gun was fined $41,500 and copped an eight week ban for his blatant tanking.
But his most infamous moment came at the 2015 Rogers Cup. It was against Stan Wawrinka that Kyrgios dropped the sledge, “Kokkinakis banged your girlfriend.” This sledge led to Kyrgios being fined $10,000 and copping a suspended 28 day suspension. He was referring to Wawrinka’s girlfriend Donna Vekic and an alleged fling she had with Thanasi Kokkinakis, another prodigious Australian talent.
