Athletistic/Tennis. Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios, Wimbledon finalist, offered to help Russian Olympic champion Andrei Rublev (5th racket in the world) after his nervous breakdown during the matches of the 2023 ATP final tournament in Turin (Italy). Note that the Australian works as an expert for Tennis Channel during this competition.

“Physically and tennis-wise, Rublev is very good, but I think he needs to improve his emotional control to not be so angry and furious. I think I could help Andrey with that. I suggest Rublev to become his mental teacher…”, Tennis Channel quotes Kyrgios.

It is noteworthy that such a proposal made Kyrgios’ studio colleagues laugh – former world number one Andy Roddick and four-time Grand Slam winner Jim Courier. Nick Kyrgios is known for his on-court antics and has often received warnings, and even disqualifications, for his behavior.

Andrey Rublev lost all three matches in the group stage of the ATP Finals tournament. The Russian played in the “Red” group, where his rivals were his compatriot Daniil Medvedev, the Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz and the German Alexander Zverev.
