Nick Kyrgios is notably regarded as one of the most controversial figures in tennis and has earned massive criticism for his outlandish on-court behavior.

Interestingly, former tennis professional John McEnroe shares a similar reputation in the sport and, ironically, explained why the Aussie might be “a bit of a d*ck” during a recent TV appearance on Wednesday, January 17.

While talking in a special Australian Open edition of Channel Nine’s The Hundred Game Show with TV star Andy Lee, John McEnroe was asked whether Nick Kyrgios was a star in his country of ‘a bit of a d**k?’. Interestingly, the American chose to side with the latter and sincerely hoped he could opt for both sides. 

I think that’s sort of what he wants to be, actually. It would be nice if he was both. Like, I know something about that.

Said McEnroe via Channel Nine’s The Hundred game show.

For the uninitiated, McEnroe was well-known for his on-court antics, which included yelling at the chair empires whenever he disagreed with their decisions. 

His attitude has seemingly been passed onto Kyrgios, who frequently adheres to such behavior and is further branded as tennis’s latest ‘bad boy’.

We had a rocky relationship at the start and a couple of things changed and now we literally speak nearly everyday. We just talk about anything, we send memes to each other.
Said Kyrgios.

It is worth noting that the 2022 Wimbledon finalist has been missing in action since the 2023 season after he sustained multiple injury counts last year. Most recently, Kyrgios also withdrew from his home slam, the Australian Open.
