Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios says he is only bored of watching Borna Coric's "boring tennis" and personality that brings "absolutely zero to the sport." The war between Kyrgios and Coric has continued as the Australian once again hit back at the Croatian.
A day earlier, two-time ATP champion Coric once again told Kyrgios he is not the one who should be speaking and preaching about good behavior.
Six-time ATP champion Kyrgios had none of that and once again unloaded on Coric.
"Again. Joking about a global pandemic. Shows your maturity level champion. Gonna be good to see you next, see if that peanut of a brain has grown," Kyrgios replied to Coric in a Twitter post. "But yes, a tad bored watching your boring ass tennis and personality bringing absolutely zero to the sport."

It all started over Adria Tour criticism
After Coric tested positive for the coronavirus following the Adria Tour event in Zadar, Kyrgios wished the Croatian a speedy recover but added that proceeding with the event in these times was a "boneheaded" decision.
When asked about Kyrgios' comments several days ago, Coric told Jutarnji: "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." A week after the Adria Tour event in Zadar, world No.
7 Alexander Zverev was spotted partying in Monaco while he was supposed to be in self quarantine. Kyrgios wasn't thrilled after seeing the pictures of Zverev and he absolutely blazed the German for his "unresponsible behavior."
Coric reflected on Kyrgios criticizing Zverev by saying: "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 what Coric told Jutarnji, Kyrgios responded: "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?"
