Nick Kyrgios is again on the trail of Dominic Thiem, Alexander Zverev and Novak Djokovic after another burst on Twitter. Dominic Thiem is staging his exhibition event in Kitzbuhel, gathering high-quality players in another attempt from the players to stay competitive and shape-up their form ahead of the possible season restart in August.
Asked about Kyrgios, Thiem said the Aussie made a lot of mistakes of his own in the past and can't judge other players. In his response, Kyrgios mentioned Thiem, Zverev and Djokovic and their behavior during the Adria Tour, blasting the German and the Serb while attacking the Austrian for standing on Zverev's side.
A couple of days ago, Kyrgios had a similar "war on Twitter" with the multiple Major winner Boris Becker, who was defending Zverev.
Alexander was among the players who competed at the Adria Tour in Belgrade and Zadar.
With no social distancing measures, Zverev was spending time with other competitors, kids, and parents, embracing football and basketball matches and visiting the night club in Belgrade.
Before the final encounter in Zadar between Novak Djokovic and Andrey Rublev, Grigor Dimitrov had announced he tested positive for the coronavirus, which forced the organizers to cancel the title match. Soon, Borna Coric revealed the same, followed by Novak Djokovic who went home to Belgrade and stated he and his wife were positive too, canceling the rest of the Tour.
After receiving the news, Alexander Zverev made a statement about the entire situation, sharing with his fans that he had tested negative and apologizing for performing at the Adria Tour and putting people at risk. The German said he would stay self-isolated but that didn't last long, with the young star spotted in a crowded club on an Instagram video.
The video was placed on Instagram by the German designer Philipp Plein and later deleted, with no indication when it was taken. Nick Kyrgios has not been a fan of the recent events and tennis in general during the pandemic, especially the Adria Tour, blasting Novak Djokovic and also the ATP Chairman Andrea Gaudenzi, whom he called a potato.
"What are you talking about, Dominic? Mistakes like smashing rackets? Swearing? Tanking a few matches here or there? Which everyone does? None of you have the intellectual level to even understand where I'm coming from.
I'm trying to hold them accountable. This just shows what a joke Dominic Thiem, Alexander Zverev and Novak Djokovic think this is, two of them partying like potatoes during a global pandemic. People losing lives, loved ones and friends, and then Thiem standing up for the 'mistake.' These guys are the 'top' of our sport," Nick Kyrgios said.
