"Nick plays his best tennis when he's fresh, when he's enjoying himself and he's engaged", said Woodbridge, according to the Melbourne Age.
Nick Kyrgios was involved in an argument with umpire Damien Dumusois during his first-round exit at the Shanghai Masters... the Australian is no stranger to drama in China's biggest city.

"You know exactly what I meant, Nick".
"It's interesting when you watch him, the umpires are watching him more closely than generally they watch the other end", Woodbridge told reporters at an event for next year's Australian Open.
Coric, who had failed to win a match in his last two appearances in Beijing and Shenzhen, saved two break points at 3-3 in the second set and clinched the first four games of the decider to record his 32nd match win of the season.
"I think it's really up to him where he wants to go and what his potential really holds".
Kyrgios was infuriated by the French chair umpire's comment, ultimately threatening him with action.
Monday's controversy was also the second time within the last six weeks that Kyrgios' effort has been questioned by an official.
In his first round encounter with Steve Johnson past year, Kyrgios received a warning for smashing two balls out of court in frustration and he walked away from the game entirely after losing the first set tiebreak.
He later sarcastically asked Dumusois "was that borderline?" after serving an ace.
Later Kyrgios said to Dumusois: "You know I literally could just go to the ATP office after this and say I felt put down from your comment and you'd be in trouble, right?"
Kyrgios has previously courted controversy at the same event. At the recent US Open, a disinterested Kyrgios was given a controversial mid-match pep talk by an umpire as he drifted towards a second-round defeat.
Kyrgios has a chequered history at the Shanghai Masters after quitting mid-match against Steve Johnson in the first round previous year and being accused of tanking in a second-round loss to Mischa Zverev in 2016.
Kyrgios is in a significant slump and now has lost the No.1 Australian ranking to Alex de Minaur.
