Nick Kyrgios battled past home favourite Paul Jubb 3-6, 6-1, 7-5, 6-7(3), 7-5 to reach the second round at The Championships.

It went to five sets because Kyrgios never makes anything easy as he struggled to find his form in the first, which he lost to Jubb by a surprising scoreline of 6-3. But never count Kyrgios out, as he is as talented as he can be awkward. And the fully paid-up member of the awkward squad was only 12 minutes into play before he started mouthing off against the umpire.

Wearing more body ink than he was clothes, Kyrgios showed flashes of brilliance in a match that went over the three-hour mark, even though he had chances to close it out in the fifth set at 5-3 up. The mainly British crowd — who rarely have much to cheer about at Wimbledon — were vocal from the off in support of Kyrgios’s British opponent.

Yes, that is how most conversations start and end about Nick Kyrgios, the self-styled bad boy on the professional tennis tour. And so it was on Tuesday on court No 3 where the Australian world number 40 was digging deep against the wild card Paul Jubb from Great Britain. The TV personality recently opened up about how he has"failed" at"monogamy and relationships" in the past. The crowd sensed a major upset and it almost was. As sanctions over the horrific war in Ukraine start to bite, it’s no surprise that Putin is pushing for an alternative global financial system – one that usurps the US and strengthens Russia’s position. It went to five sets because Kyrgios never makes anything easy as he struggled to find his form in the first, which he lost to Jubb by a surprising scoreline of 6-3. Despite his"failed" relationships, Nick Cannon is still a"hopeless romantic". But never count Kyrgios out, as he is as talented as he can be awkward. But she warmed up by teaming up with Ons Jabeur in the doubles at Eastbourne last week and Wimbledon is widely considered her best chance of winning an elusive 24th Grand Slam.

"I'm a hopeless romantic at the end of the day," Cannon, who finalised his divorce from Mariah Carey in 2016, said during the episode . Thereafter you will be billed R75 per month. Wearing more body ink than he was clothes, Kyrgios showed flashes of brilliance in a match that went over the three-hour mark, even though he had chances to close it out in the fifth set at 5-3 up. The mainly British crowd — who rarely have much to cheer about at Wimbledon — were vocal from the off in support of Kyrgios’s British opponent. I love the ceremony of it. I suspect, rather like me, the crowd had never heard of Paul Jubb. But that didn’t matter. But like, you know, God ain't done with me. There was a question mark over his durability for the two weeks at Wimbledon having played the entire French Open with his troublesome left foot anaesthetised.

He is British and that is good enough. The applause was rapturous as the small-framed Jubb moved effortlessly from side to side, before unleashing some down-the-line winning shots." Host Shelley Wade then asks Cannon what the deciding factor would be when choosing to marry again, to which Cannon responded,"I think, as I'm growing, I mean, I've probably had a few midlife crises. Kyrgios had his moments too, and these came in the next two sets, which he took by the scruff of the neck, 6-1, 7-5. But it was in the fourth set that his lack of concentration showed, and his vocal range was more on display than his tennis." When discussing Love Languages, the Drumline star noted acts of service is a"big one" for him. But that is what we have all come to expect. Wimbledon will test the Polish top seed's ability to keep the run going.

The drama is as exciting as the tennis.You can serve each other, and where you're weak, they're strong," he explained. The stadium was packed and not that many in the ATP top 10 can pull in such numbers as this enigmatic character. Kyrgios clearly believes in the line, “It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish." Cannon, who is expecting his eighth child with model Bre Tiesi, previously commented on the prospect of getting married again, saying that he wouldn't get the"government involved," but he would consider"something on a spiritual or holistic ritual.” He couldn’t close out on serve but broke to do just that. He took the fifth set 7-5 and looked mightily relieved as he warmly shook hands at the net.
