Imagine thumping down a serve at over 200km per hour?
Well Nick Kyrgios did that this week at Wimbledon.
Imagine being hit in the arm by a serve at over 200km per hour?
Well for one unfortunate ball girl she was in the firing line of sight of that said serve.
Poor darling! It would have felt like a bullet I imagine with that sort of voice.
Nick's opponent Istomin put a caring arm around her and Nick also checked to see if she was ok. Thankfully she was taken off court quickly for medical help. Hopefully in the trainer's bag of tricks there was something that helped her quickly.
In that match Kyrgios served over 40 aces!
He says he's in a good head space about his tennis and is showing signs of being dangerously good at Wimbledon.
I just hope he stays focused - because for me he has every opportunity to win this tournament. He has a whopping serve, great groundstrokes, awesome volleys and his touch and feel is superb....it's just that pesky head of his and his mouth. Keep those 2 on track and we might have an Aussie Wimbledon winner!
