Nick Kyrgios seemingly takes shot at ATP over Wimbledon decision

Nick Kyrgios and Thanasi Kokkinakis have qualified for the ATP Finals doubles event as Kyrgios made it clear that he feels he should have qualified for the singles event at well. 

Kyrgios and Kokkinakis, who captured the Australian Open doubles title earlier this year, will finish between the eighth and 20th on in the Race to Turin standings. 

Because of that, Kyrgios and Kokkinakis have sealed a doubles spot at the ATP Finals.

In the Race to Turin singles list, Kyrgios is 22nd with 1,870 points. 

However, it should be noted that Kyrgios – this year’s Wimbledon runner-up – would have 1,300 points more had the ATP counted Wimbledon points. 

“Should of (sic) been in singles as well [but] no points at Wimbledon. First time in 53 years but we won’t speak of that,” Kyrgios wrote on his Instagram Story. 

Kyrgios became a Grand Slam champion with his good friend

In the Australian Open doubles final, Kyrgios and Kokkinakis defeated Max Ebden and Max Purcell. 

For both Kyrgios and Kokkinakis, it was a first Grand Slam title. 

“This week has been a dream come true for me. I wouldn’t want to do it with anyone else. Max has been to the final twice, so he’s a hell of a doubles player. Matty’s had a hell of a career, so I’m just super happy,” Kyrgios said after the final. 

After the two won the Australian Open, Kokkinakis admitted they entered the tournament hoping to have some fun and that they didn’t really expect to win the title.

“Nick, I love you brother. I can honestly say we did not expect to even come close to this, but with the help of you guys all week, [it has] been unbelievable. The coverage it got and the support for us, we couldn’t ask for anything more,” Kokkinakis said. 

The ATP Finals are taking place between November 13-20.
