The 21-year-old went down in straight sets to home favourite and world number two Andy Murray at Wimbledon on Monday, battling well in the opening set before crumbling completely in the next two; which the Australian described as "pathetic" in this post-match interview.

He didn't stop there, labelling himself as "soft" when the going gets tough, along with questioning his love for the game.
