Nick KYRGIOS - Australia - Quarter-finalist at Wimbledon 2014.

Unseeded Nick Kyrgios pictured serving on Centre Court during his defeat of World Number One Rafael Nadal

during the fourth round at Wimbledon. The nineteen year old also caused much talk during the match about

his "tatoo" (inset) located under his serving arm. It was in fact a  type of sports tape and it was thought.

Kyrgios was wearing the tape to support his elbow, specifically his ulnar nerve.  The tapes cost about £10.

The tattoo design comes from Tahitian tattoo artist Tihoti. 

Nick was the first unseeded player in a decade to reach the last sixteen (fourth round)


All England Lawn Tennis Championships 2014.  Men's results.
