Nick Kyrgios tweets about $1,000 meal before third round of U.S. Open

Saturday August 30th, 2014

NEW YORK -- Aussie phenom Nick Kyrgios is set to play his third round match against 16th seed Tommy Robredo on Saturday. He decided to prepare for the match by going out for an extravagant Greek dinner with his countryman Marinko Matosevic. How extravagant you ask? How does a $1,000 tab sound?

That seems a bit absurd, especially given that Kyrgios is 19 years old and can't exactly order the type of liquid refreshments that help rack up those sorts of bills. Then again, we also don't know how many people were at dinner. I mean, if it was a big banquet for 100 people, I'd say you got yourself a pretty darn good deal, Nick.
