"Doing his thing, p****ng people off": Andy Roddick hopes to see Nick Kyrgios return to action as Tennis Channel stint ends

Nick Kyrgios after initial issues including some commentary gaffes found a home in doing commentary for the Tennis Channel during his continued spell away from the court, but Andy Roddick in particular hopes it is the one and only stint he does.

Roddick had some nice words for Kyrgios as he wrapped up his stint, but hopes to see him on the court again instead of back at the desk and in his words being 'the human highlight show'.

It is uncertain though when that highlight reel tennis will return though, with Kyrgios struggling with injuries for most of this year and with Australia on the horizon, there are no real indications that he will play at home.

Kyrgios will aim for that date, but admitted recently also that he is not near returning yet so the race against time will begin over the next month before the Aussie Summer begins and the warm-up tournaments start.

"I'm in the minority here but I don't want to see him back at the Tennis Channel desk here because I'd rather see him on the court, doing his thing, you know, pis**ng people off left right and centre, being the human highlight show," said Roddick.

"I want to let the beast out, we need to see the beast. I'd love working with you Nick. I wish you health going forward. We're always happy when you're on the court."
