Former US Open Champion and World No. 1 Andy Roddick returned to live tennis commentary via Periscope. While Roddick commentated on both the Serena Williams/Vania King and Juan Martin del Potro/Steve Johnson second round matches, it was a comment he made when answering a question about Nick Kyrgios that generated a lot of response, at least on my own Twitter response timeline after I posted the comment.
While I don’t remember the actual question, this is what Roddick said about Kyrgios.
“You love him. You hate him. You’re indifferent. But you watch him. He’s good for tennis.” Roddick on Kyrgios.

After posting this, I received many responses to it. Debates about Kyrgios and his personality are nothing new.
