The constant battle between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, who of course also came to Wimbledon, last week stands in the shadow of London's biggest show, the Australian Nick Krios who has so far managed to put the box in the head, along with his phenomenal ability to become the hottest thing in the tournament.
His last victim was the Greek Tsitsipas in the third round of the tournament.
The Australian gave a show before, during and after the game.
While the game was saturated with incidents and ended with a quick handshake between the two, right after that the real action began.
Kirius said in an interview on the court that tennis is a frustrating sport, and he understands and loves Tsitsipas.

Everyone was waiting for the press conference that followed, because the bad blood between the two is known to everyone, and also last week the Australian came to a press conference after a game with sushi and a fork, and ate it in front of the press impatiently and shockingly: "Who eats sushi with a fork?".
"Kirius is a bully," the Greek began angrily.
"It needs to stop. He's bullying his opponents. He must have been bullied at school too. He has positive qualities, but he has a vicious side."
The Australian who came in after me also provided the goods: "The circus today was entirely of Tsitsipas, not mine. He has serious problems. I like him in the dressing room and he doesn't. Maybe he needs to figure out how to beat me."

Now it remains to be seen whether the Australian is able to continue going at least until the semi-finals.
In the past, Kirius has recorded a victory over Rafael Nadal but there is no doubt that he is on his way to a record tournament for him.
The third quarter of the draw, in which Tsitsipas was the senior ranked, opened completely.
Kirius will go up on Monday for the game against American Brandon Nakshima who is doing an excellent tournament relative to his young age.
He knows that the game in the second is not only about a quarter-final, but an opportunity to reach the semi-finals and the peak achievement of his career.
"He's the biggest show at Wimbledon" wrote the British newspapers who enjoy the fact that the silent nerd section of world tennis, may finally get the man to add some interest.
While the Australians already see him as their representative on English soil: "He does not owe you anything," stated the Sydney Morning Herald.
"It's a default bro!"
Nick Kyrgios was furious about the decisions made during his third-round tie with Stefanos Tsitsipas at #Wimbledon 😳
