Evidenced by his response to Borna Coric, who recently confided in an interview to the daily Jutarnji that he had nothing to do with the Australian’s remarks. “I read what he wrote, but I don’t care. He enjoys being a general after battle. Coming from someone else, I might have understood, but it’s just Kyrgios… In a way, it’s not really realistic. It’s his style, it works like that and I have no problem with that, ”the Croatian explained in particular.
Nick Kyrgios’ response on Twitter was just as incisive. “You should pay attention to it. Do you have stones in your head? Again you can stand up for your friends, I’m just trying to hold them accountable. When I said what I said, I didn’t mean to bother. They are tennis players, they are not special. In the same way that I think that the intellectual level of Coric is equal to zero ”, he indeed launched.
