Joshua Eagle a former coach of Nick Krygios’ believes that the tennis player is uncoachable at this point in his career.
He spoke just as the Aussie reached the finals of the Wimbledon 2022 tournament. Eagle is of the opinion that the only person who can be of assistance to Kyrgios in his development is himself.
Eagle remarked that working with the tennis player is trying at times. He speaks from a point of information from his previous experiences with the player.
During a chat with Eurosport, Eagle stated, that every day is a different day with Kyrgios. It’s impossible to predict what he will turn to in a moment.
Eagle says there are moments of he is a great genius, and then other times he is a complete and utter disappointment. But that’s why people come to watch him because he’s ‘a box of chocolates’.
He adds that with the Australian, you can never be sure what it is that you are going to obtain. Nevertheless, Eagle is delighted to see him playing at his full potential because he’s one of the best talents that the game ever had.
Getting to the finals at Wimbledon 2022, Eagle feels Kyrgios put all his ability into the game and it’s a good thing.
He adds that no one is capable of deciphering what the player is thinking. He follows the rhythm of his own drum in whatever he does and his actions come from his feelings at the time.
He focuses more on the goals he has set for himself. Eagle made the observation that Kyrgios is currently in the best physical shape of his whole life and appears to have prepared himself to win Wimbledon 2022 Grand Slam.
He believes that Kyrgios will have a chance to win over the support of Australian fans in particular on Sunday’s championship match. But, this will only come to be if he demonstrates the characteristics that Australians normally admire in their athletes.
From an observation point of view as a coach, Eagle saus Kyrgios is in greater shape, moves more fluidly, and hits the ball effectively. Wimbledon is the Grand Slam competition that he feels he has the best chance of winning.
The fact that he didn’t play in the French Open feels to many like he’s trying to redeem himself. People are either enamored with or repulsed by his antics. Tennis purists definitely do not enjoy it, while members of the younger age adore it to an extreme degree.
Since Eagle worked with him in the past, he finds that there are moments when it goes completely over the top. All the coach wished that Kyrgios simply get on with playing instead.
“I’ve witnessed the ability, and I’m aware of the potential he possesses. I really hope that he is able to make use of his gift. Given his level of talent, I believe he could have won anywhere from three to five Grand Slam titles at this point. He has the ability to win these championships if he can just tone down the shenanigans a bit and concentrate on what he does best, which is playing tennis.”
