#2 Nick “controversial” Kyrgios’ 2015 campaign

Who are you?I’m the Batman!

Arrogance, brashness and immaturity are not things one would associate with Wimbledon but a certain 20-year-old Australian by the name Nick Kyrgios showed all of the above-mentioned qualities in abundance throughout his campaign.

From swearing at the chair umpire to picking up a fight with a female fan, this youngster definitely became the “bad boy” of tennis overnight. In a funny incident amidst all this controversy, Kyrgios but for the advice of a fan in a Batman T-shirt,might have been booking a flight back home. In his third round match, Kyrgios was clearly struggling to hold his own before a fan in one of the front rows decided to take matters into his own hands.

After his win, Kyrgios went on to say "He was just a fan. I thought he was key in the match,". "He was actually saying some really good things at crucial moments. I think he helped." Kyrgios added: "Before I was serving, he always said something like, 'Send down a bullet'. At that stage, I'm thinking, 'Let's try to make it a really good first serve here'."

Now, Nick, we hope Batman helps you tone down the anger as well.
