Nick Kyrgios has reached a significant milestone today, notching up the highest ranking in his tennis career so far.

Off the back of winning his third title at the Japan Open, the Aussie has soared to 13th on the ATP charts.

But unforunately for Kyrgios, this significant achievement has been soured by his bizarre behaviour at the Shanghai Masters that has seen him banned for the rest of the year.

The media and public scrutiny has been intense over the last 6 months - and the 21-year old posted this meme to his Facebook account which not-so-subtly implies that he thinks he's been judged harshly:

Kyrgios could potentially return to tennis by November 7.

With a strong comeback, he could be placed to be the first Australian to crack the top 10 in the world since Lleyton Hewitt in 2006.
