Australian Slamming Of 'SuperBrat' Nick Kyrgios Leads To One Brilliant Headline

Nick Kyrgios is one of the most talked about tennis players in 2015. From his memorable Wimbledon that mixed in some sublime play with intentional tanking and abusive language towards umpires lead to him being branded as the Kanye West of tennis.

There was some criticism from his native Australia, but for the most part the Aussies were backing their talented 20-year-old tennis prodigy.

Then Montreal happened. Kyrgios was caught on camera sledging Stan Wawrinka. Needless to say, the tennis world was appalled. This time, Kyrgios doesn't have the support of the Australians. The media have labelled him a national embarrassment, and a superbrat.


But the pick of the bunch is this headline from the Courier Mail in Australia:


The controversy hasn't quietened down, after Kyrgios' older brother Christos was dumped from a radio interview after saying a similarly offensive statement. While on a radio interview with the Grill Team, the line went dead mid-interview. Co-host Chris Page then informed listeners that "Sorry, we’ve just had to dump Christos. He said something pretty crook".
