STARTS TOMORROW FROM 1AM headline stories of Serena Williams gunning for a calendar Grand Slam and Roger Federer’s tilt to end a threeyear Grand Slam title drought.
Queenslander Sam Stosur told The Courier-Mail that WOMEN: Daria Gavrilova v 3-Maria Sharapova (RUS), Casey Dellacqua v Anett Kontaveit (EST)
LIVE ON FOX SPORTS Australian players were constantly being quizzed on Kyrgios’ behaviour.
“You wouldn’t believe how many people ask us about it. Other players, coaches ... it’s interesting,’’ Stosur said. ‘‘It’s definitely a hot topic.” Kyrgios has been seeking counsel from Lleyton Hewitt both on and off court.
Hewitt is also acting as a mentor for Kyrgios’ friend Bernard Tomic.
Kyrgios’ doubles partner and the man unwittingly dragged into the on-court sledge, Thanasi Kokkinakis, said while people in the locker room were “disappointed” with Kyrgios’ behaviour, he had not let it affect his preparation for the Open.
“Look obviously it’s weird what he did … I’m fine, he apologised to me. I’ve played some good tennis,” he said.
