Nick Kyrgios is undoubtedly the bad boy of tennis at the moment. He fights with umpires, fans, other players, and generally acts like a bit of a dick. Because of all of this, he is absolute box office.
It helps that he can play a bit too. While he may lack the work rate and application of many of his rivals, he has the physical gifts to rival any player. He is quick, powerful, and has a wicked serve.
He has a bag full of tricks, and you should always expect the unexpected in his matches.
He faced Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon today, with the pair sharing somewhat of a chequered history. They don't really get on, with Nadal not a fan of the Australian's on-court antics. Kyrgios is not a fan of Nadal either, who he thinks is a bit of a bore.
This one was always going to feature fireworks, and Kyrgios was likely to do something out of the ordinary.
It would come in the first set, when he pulled off an incredibly cheeky underarm serve.

While he would lose that set, it didn't deter him.
He would do the exact same thing in the next set, something that didn't go down well with the Wimbledon crowd.
There it is again!
Two underarm serves by Kyrgios, two points won. Can't argue with the results.#Wimbledon pic.twitter.com/URND25HcYJ

He may be a bit of a tosser, but you have to love him.
