Former British tennis player and now a renowned commentator Andrew Castle has revealed that he is ‘looking forward’ to working with Australia’s Nick Kyrgios. The 29-year-old is famous for being out spoken and there has been times when he remains in the news for all the wrong reasons.
One of those incidents came last year, when Kyrgios called Castle a ‘clown’ on social media. Interestingly, both will work for the British media outlet in the upcoming third Grand Slam of the year. Wimbledon 2024 will begin on July 1st, and players from all over the world will participate to showcase their talent and win the ultimate prize.
Castle, while talking to British media outlet Metro, discussed the incident from last year. The 60-year-old further stated that he has no problem working with Kyrgios in the upcoming competition. “It was along the lines of calling the commentator an idiot,’ he said. "I’ve got no issue at all with any of that. Everyone has the right to an opinion. Especially someone who’s been in a Wimbledon final. But, you know, the fact is that sitting on your sofa or in your car, it’s pretty easy from there. [But] I look forward to seeing him and working with him.”
Kyrgios has been out of action for more than 12 months after suffering from fitness concerns. Because of this, he has already missed the last six Grand Slams. His last appearance in a major competition was back in the 2022 US Open, where he lost in the quarterfinal to Russia’s Karen Khachanov in a five-set thriller with a score of 7-6, 4-6, 7-6, 6-7, 6-4.
In 2022, Kyrgios also produced his best appearance in the mega-event as he finished Wimbledon as the runner-up after losing to the former world number one Serbia’s Novak Djokovic in the final with a score of 4–6, 6–3, 6–4, 7–6.
