You can blame Nick Kyrgio's outbursts on youth, but at this point, he should know better. When he's cursing out umpires and breaking rackets, he is putting a black eye on what is supposed to be a classy sport. 

Kids watch these athletes and emulate them. Kyrgios is not doing himself or the game any favors with this childish behavior. He is bad for the sport.

People who have a problem with Kyrgios have a problem with emotion in general. Emotion makes the game better; it makes it more intriguing. These are humans who are playing the sport, and expecting robot-like behavior is just boring.

Kyrgios wears his feelings on his sleeve, much like a lot of other players on the court. He might not be perfect, but he is relatable, and the more relatable players are at the professional level, the better for the sport as a whole.
