Dear Nick,

I’m a fan! Honestly, Nick Kyrgios…huge fan! There are so many things I love about your game.

Your style, creativity and flair! No, not the kind of flair we’re talking about in Office Space, but maybe the type of flair from the WWE star, Ric Flair. Again, it beckons a time of the glory days, but this time of Andre Agassi. You craft shots that are effective and fun to watch. And the great thing about it, is the other guy never sees it coming. Because when we watch you, you look so casual. Like you’re not thinking about anything…you just do. It’s a natural talent that I hope you hone and never let it fade.

Let’s talk about your serve. Yeah, your first serve is pretty awesome, but it’s the second serve that’s got everyone talking. Watching you brings me back to the Sampras days. Pistol Pete treated second serves just like the first with such fire power and guts! You’ve got that. I mean, look at you. You stuck it to Novak twice in a month. He had no answers. Incredible! Nothing better than watching tennis when the guys are leaving it all out on the court.

Your heart! When you are in a match, making incredible shots, pumping your fists, beating your chest, pointing to your box like “Yeah, I got this”…those are the best. That’s why we watch. All in!

Lastly, your mom. I don’t know anything about your mom, but she’s cute as a button sitting there in you box, cheering you on. There is nothing better than a mother’s support. I don’t know if you’ll ever get a coach. You should probably do that eventually, but there is something to be said for the lone wolf. You’re making it work…at least at this moment right now. I don’t know if that is sustainable, but you’ll figure that out.

Anyways….you’ve got Roger next. It’ll be a fun match to watch. Good luck to you!

Tennis love,

Frazier

  1. How do you do it Frazier? Your words seem to glide out so fluidly, and perfect. I haven’t seen this guy you speak of, as of yet, but if he’s as “pull the trigger ” as you speak of, man Frazier, I’m missing out. Wishing nick the best, and Frazier, I love your flair!

  2. […] When coverage of the Laver Cup started today, I really thought I was going to write about the gold chain epidemic. (Yes, there is a gold chain epidemic in men’s tennis, and it’s pretty serious. Stay tune for a post on that real soon). However, I get sucked into the drama that is Nick Kyrgios. He is a fascinating character to watch and analyze. I’m a huge fan…I’ve even wrote him a fan letter. Dear Nick […]
