I watched a bit of the Kyrgios-Medvedev match, the first set tiebreak was insane. I don't like Kyrgios' temper tantrums, but when he stays focused, he plays some great tennis and can beat anybody. I think he has a real chance of winning this, unless Nadal says otherwise.

The man is evolving into a grand slam champion. Some would say it is about time as he has always had talent. He is maturing as a player and having had a taste of success wining the Australian Open doubles and reaching the singles final at Wimbledon has "wet his whistle' and given him both the self belief that he can do it, and the desire to achieve.

Let us hope he remains in control of his temper and realizes success by wining the US open.

He may be part of the next group of slam champions to take over after Nadal, Federer and Djokovic retire.

Time will tell, but it is looking positive so far.

Kyrgios has talent in buckets. There is no doubt about that.

But the man is just an ass. He is a whiner, he is a poor sport. He "exceeds the bounds of sportsmanship" and tries to excuse it as being "competitive."

I don't recall Pete Sampras or Rodger behaving like this.

He may win, but he has a long ways to go to become a Champion.

Federer was a super brat when he was younger

Australia's Nick Kyrgios sent defending champion Daniil Medvedev tumbling out of the U.S. Open on Sunday

Kyrgios had great serves, played the net well, and moved Medvedev around the court. If Kyrgios gets through his next match, he still has the possibility of meeting Berettini, who has been playing well, before he potentially gets to Nadal.

And Nadal is out now too
