Nick Kyrgios shared a fragment from an interview with Jordan Peterson, New York Times bestselling author, clinical psychologist, and professor, in which Peterson gives advice on how to deal with the evil in our world.
“Battle not with monsters, lest ye become a monster. And if you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you,” the interviewer cited.
“Right. But I would say, bring it on. If you gaze into the abyss long enough you see the light not the darkness,” said Peterson.
Asked if he is sure about it, Jordan Peterson responded. “I’m betting my life on it,” said Peterson.
“That’s a heck of a bet. Because it might distort your mind to where all you see is abyss, is the evil in this world…” answered the interviewer.
“You haven’t looked long enough,” Peterson chipped in.

Kyrgios felt bad after being eliminated from US Open
Nick Kyrgios was the big favorite for the final victory at the US Open 2022 after beating Daniil Medvedev and the simultaneous elimination of Rafael Nadal. But in the quarter-finals of the New York tournament came the defeat against Karen Khachanov.
Understandably, the Australian tennis player appeared at the press conference with somewhat polemical feelings. He explained in the press conference: “I entered the exhaust field. Slowly I grew up, but I am obviously devastated. I can only congratulate Karen who was better than me: he is a warrior, a fighter, and I think he served in a truly extraordinary way today. You simply played the important points better, I don’t think there is anything else behind this defeat. I just feel devastated, I feel like I just failed. Obviously, I’ve played a large number of games in the last couple of months, so it’s not always easy to be at the top of the game. As soon as I entered the field during the warm-up I felt a pain in my knee. But it is nothing more. At the end of the game I felt physically fine, only mentally devastated.”
