Australian players Nick Kyrgios and Bernard Tomic are well known for their performance on the tennis field. Both the players have different playing styles and strategies. Recently, a light argument started between the two tennis stars when a fan on Instagram asked Bernard that if he thinks he is better player than Nick, to which the player replied that how Nick is one of the best serves in the world but he is not threatened by him because he is very well acquainted with his game.

Yeah, obviously Nick’s a good player, I mean top 6, 7 servers in the world,” Bernard Tomic said. “But I obviously beat him in Kooyong 6-3, 6-4, a couple years back. And you know just cuz I train with him, I sort of pock where he’s serving, I sort of know where he’s at. So, that sort of style doesn’t really bother me,” Tomic added.

To Tomic’s response, Kyrgios claimed how the former has no victory against the Big 3, namely Djokovic, Federer and Nadal. He also added that though Bernard beat him but he has more titles than him so he can’t say he is better. In the end, Nick wished his former player good luck.

“And yes he did beat me there once, but to say that he is better, I have more titles,” Kyrgios pointed out. “I don’t think he’s got any sort of big scalps to his name, no Rafa, no Federer, no Djokovic. I wish him (Tomic) the best,” Kyrgios had said.

“I am no jealous person, I want success for everyone. So BT, we know what you’re capable of brother. Let’s see it, good luck man,” he added.

Bernard and Nick’s banter took a fresh turn when Bernard responded to Nick’s claims. He thanked Nick for his kind words and wished him good luck. Later, Bernard highlighted the fact that how he played a match against Novak and beat him. He also mentioned that he beat Kyrgios himself.

“Thanks to Nicky boy for the kind words and the encouragement,” Bernard Tomic said. “I look forward to seeing him down in AO and hopefully we can both make Australians proud.

“But just to set the record straight, he says I haven’t beaten any of the top players,” Tomic added. “I’ve beaten Djokovic, Grand Slam champions Wawrinka, Cilic, Hewitt and most importantly, himself. Look, I’m more than happy to make it 2-0 whenever he wants. And all jokes aside I wish NK the best, good luck,” he concluded.
