Nick Kyrgios fired shots at fellow Australian Bernard Tomic, saying that his former Davis Cup team mate has “lost his way” and “doesn’t make sense”. Once close friends, Kyrgios and Tomic were on guard to protect each other at times when they were at the receiving end of things.
“You’d also be wrong if you tried to lump me in the same category as Bernard Tomic,” Kyrgios wrote in a blog on the website www.playersvoice.com.au. “Bernie has lost his way. We were pretty good mates when I was younger.
I obviously didn’t know the tennis tour too well back then and we were guys of similar age, representing the same country, on the road at many of the same tournaments.” “But a lot has changed since then.
He needs to figure out what he wants to do.” Following his loss at the US Open, Tomic spoke about himself, saying that he is not the smartest guy in the world and that tennis was all he knew. “I can’t relate to anything Tomic says anymore,” said Kyrgios.
“He says one thing and he does the other. And he contradicts himself all the time.” “He says tennis doesn’t make him happy, that he doesn’t really like the game, yet he says the only thing that will really make him happy is winning a grand slam.
It doesn’t make sense at all.” ALSO READ Nick Kyrgios claims Canberra player of the year award .
