Nick Kyrgios is set to appear on Piers Morgan Uncensored on Thursday as the Australian tennis star hilariously recounted their clash from a few years ago, using an expletive to describe how he feels about the host at times.
After suffering a straight-set loss to Andy Murray in the 2016 Wimbledon round-of-16, Kyrgios admitted that delivered "a soft" performance and revealed that he played video games the night earlier. Morgan wasn't a fan of Kyrgios' revelation, describing him as "a petulant little brat" at the time and writing on Twitter, now known as X: "Put your toys back in your pram and go home." Kyrgios bluntly responded at the time: "EAD." In a trailer posted on social media, Kyrgios tells Morgan in a funny manner: "Sometimes you are a bit of a (expletive).
I can be a douche on the tennis court... I think we're very alike."

Last year, Morgan criticized Kyrgios for his Wimbledon press conference, in which he was eating sushi while ripping "disrespectful fans." "How would you feel if while we're talking right now I just start munching on sushi?" Morgan asked Kyrgios.
The Australian tennis star responded: "If I was talking to Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic I'd be like yeah, no, 100 percent. But Piers Morgan, it's like, it's a problem." In the trailer, it can also be seen that Kyrgios discussed experiencing racism in Australia and a thief coming to his parents' house to steal his car.
In the tennis world, Kyrgios is one of the most interesting personalities.

Kyrgios is no stranger to controversy or drama but he is still one of the most popular players in the world. Over the years, Kyrgios has suggested several times that he will choose to be himself rather than pretend to be something that he is not.
