Well, isn’t the point of listening to music before your game to get you pumped up? Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case for 19-year old Tennis star Nick Kyrgios. The Aussie player is playing at Wimbledon and just recently ousted the legendary Rafael Nadal earlier today. Prior to his match against Nadal, Kyrgios faced Jiri Vesley this past Saturday in the third round of Wimbledon. During his match with Vesley, he lost in the first set and blamed Drizzy for his poor performance.
“I came out really flat,” he said after the match, “so hopefully I won’t listen to that again! It was actually Drake. Didn’t do the job for me.”
Some players normally go “0-100″ real quick. For Kyrgios, it took him the second set to finally get things going and knock off Vesley. He actually won in four sets 3-6, 6-3, 7-5, 6-2.
While Nick Kyrgios admitted to listening to Drake prior to his match with Vesley, the songs that kilt his vibe, remains unknown.
We can only wonder what songs he played to defeat Nadal. Maybe some Marshall or Macklemore?
