A fan attending Rogers Cup named Matt Morin on Twitter asked the Australian player Nick Kyrgios to practice with him for just 5 minutes on the court and to everyone’s surprise, Kyrgios, too, agreed to play. The 22-year-old is undergoing a slump in form and also facing criticisms on his performance.
