Nick Kyrgios: “Tomic, you are the most hated athlete in Australia!”

It has been since last December that Nick Kyrgios and Bernard Tomic continue to attack each other through their social accounts. The dispute between the two eccentric Australian tennis players began at the end of 2021, when Tomic expressed his thoughts on his countryman.

“Obviously Nick is a good player, probably in the top 6 or 7 big servers in the world, but I have to remember that I beat him 6-3; 6-4 at Kooyong. In the end I often train with him, he serves well, but I know his response and he doesn’t bother me. His style in general doesn’t really bother me. Who is the best among us in our prime? Well, always me.”

Kyrgios did not like Tomic’s thought and responded bluntly. “Who is stronger between Me and Tomic? The. I have multiple titles. Also, unlike Tomic, I beat Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. Does he think he’s stronger than me? I think it’s a bit of a stretch. Although in general we all know what Bernard is capable of.”

After months of silence, a provocation launched by a fan to Kyrgios on Instagram was enough to overheat the spirits. “Tomic says he’s stronger than you.”

This time, the 27-year-old from Canberra attacked Tomic heavily. “Better in what way? My career is better than his. I made more money, got more wins. The time has come for Bernard to calm down. He isn’t even playing anymore. I will play for a few more years.”

Tomic limited himself to commenting on Kyrgios’ answer in writing. “Really! I’m clearly your idol.”

The current number 76 in the world, however, subsequently increased the dose: “Come on, Tomic. Don’t forget when I paid for your flight from Shanghai because you didn’t have any money. You are the most hated athlete in Australia. You’re right: no one can surpass you in this.”
