Is Nick Kyrgios good for tennis?

Great question

For The Win

The first thing to know is that no one ever brings up tennis to me. Unless it’s the final weekend of a Grand Slam, friends, family, acquaintances and the hosts of radio shows on which I appear as a guest, all of whom know of my coverage and love for the sport, never mention it. Tennis is a complete non-factor, except perhaps during the final weekends of Grand Slams and sometimes not then. Even with the men’s game at its all-time apex and Serena Williams being an American player on the verge of history, tennis just doesn’t cut it with the common sports fan.

Then here comes Nick Kyrgios, a spiky haired, arrogant, mouthy Australian who, as a teenager, stunned Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon and has backed up his play by moving comfortably into the top 50 and as high as No. 25 in the world.
