The feud between Borna Coric and Nick Kyrgios continues as the Croatian has once again suggested that the Australian can't be the one preaching about good behavior and criticizing others when they make a mistake. Last month, six-time ATP champion Kyrgios said proceeding with the Adria Tour was a "boneheaded" decision and also called out Alexander Zverev for partying in Monaco when he was supposed be in self isolation.
Several days ago, Coric was asked about Kyrgios' comments and he said he didn't care at all and suggested the Australian can't be the one giving lessons. Kyrgios sharply responded as he insulted Coric by saying his intellectual level was "zero."
Two-time ATP champion Coric hit back at the Australian, saying once again he can't be the one preaching good behavior.
Kyrgios unloaded on Zverev
"So I wake up and I see more controversial things happening all over the world, but one that stuck out for me was seeing Zverev again man, again, again, how selfish can you be? How selfish can you be?" Kyrgios said in late-June.
"I mean, if you have the audacity to put out a f***ing tweet that you made your management write on your behalf saying you are going to self isolate for 14 days and apologising to f***ing general public for putting their health at risk, at least have the audacity to stay inside for 14 days.
My god. "Have your girlfriend with you for f***ing 14 days. Jesus, man. It pisses me off. This tennis world pisses me off. How selfish can you all get?" Several days ago, Coric told Jurarnji: "I read what he wrote, but I simply don't care since he likes to be a 'general after a battle.'
If someone else was teaching lessons I would have maybe understood, but Kyrgios ... It's somehow not realistic. "But ok, it's his style, that's how he functions, I have no problem with that neither does it bother me on personal level.
"Zverev acted badly, but I don't see the need to call out fellow players in that way. I wouldn't do that, but again -- that's Kyrgios." After seeing Coric's comments, Kyrgios responded on Twitter: "You should care.
Do you have rocks in your head? Again, you can stand up for your mates, I’m just trying to hold them accountable. "When I said what I said, I didn’t intend to bother. They are tennis players, they aren’t special.
Just as I thought Coric intellectual level = 0. "Just making sure that you spuds didn’t cause more players to feel like Dimitrov. Have you read how he continued to feel after he tested negative? Or that’s too much for that brain of yours to process?"
