Wimbledon finalist Nick Kyrgios has rekindled his rivalry with Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas, after remarking in an Instagram Q&A that it was “comfy” for him to beat his nemesis the last two times. Recently, Tsitsipas had also asked Kyrgios for a revenge match in a social media post.

Kyrgios, who regularly posts stories on his Instagram account, also bashed up another user on Thursday during Q&A who suggested that the Australian could have had much more success in tennis if he kept his head in his place. To this advice, Kyrgios shot back with, “I don’t think you’d win a point off me and tbh I think concentrating on your life is a better idea.”

The Australian was also recently seen lending support to Team World’s Frances Tiafoe, who had taunted Tsitsipas at the Laver Cup recently with the remark, “I want to own all that Greek yogurt” resulting in a visible loss of focus for the Greek No.1 player, who until that point was dominating the match with Tiafoe. Kyrgios tagged Tiafoe in a cynical comment where he said encouragingly , “Stop bro”, for which many on social media even called him “disgusting.”

Nick Kyrgios continues to take out his frustrations on social media

Kyrgios also vented out at Tennis Australia on Wednesday for not being given enough time to practice at courts in Melbourne despite him and his partner Thanasi Kokkinakis winning the Australian Open this year. The feisty Australian, who has Malaysian maternal roots, is due to compete in doubles at the Japan Open along with Kokkinakis.

Kyrgios questioned priorities when it comes to players by putting out his frustrations on his Instagram stories, targeting Tennis Australia by saying that nothing had changed in terms of their policies and he could not get even an hour of decent court time in the end at Australian Open’s Melbourne courts.

However, Kyrgios’ partner Kokkinakis tried to look at the situation with a touch of humor when he said, “Breaking news: Tennis stars Nick Kyrgios and Thanasi Kokkinakis were left stranded without a paddle as the biggest tennis academy in the world was unable to accommodate the superstars. They gave priority treatment to the grassrooters out there, some of them so uncoordinated that they were unable to make contact with the ball after 3 hours on court.”

Kyrgios and Kokkinakis have always been a dangerous doubles pairing even for specialist players but in 2022, the combination really struck gold after winning a Grand Slam title in Melbourne. Interestingly, it was also an all-Australian final with Matthew Ebden and Max Purcell ending up on the losing side.

The duo were also due to compete at Wimbledon in the men’s doubles but withdrew after indicating that authorities at the All England Lawn Tennis Club were unwilling to part with their policy of five sets each for every match during the tournament.

Kyrgios said that even though he was doing well in doubles, singles will always be a priority for him and therefore, playing five sets in both was not feasible. Later, the Australian had enough to boast about when he reached the final in singles because of his focus, losing to Novak Djokovic in the end of it all after a tough fight.
