Nick Kyrgios: 'Roger Federer, please win Wimbledon final against Djokovic'

Nick Kyrgios roots for Roger Federer in the upcoming Wimbledon final against Novak Djokovic. Through his official Twitter account, Kyrgios, who is currently in the United States, wrote three words to share his support to the Swiss who will try to conquer his 21st Grand Slam title.

"Federer please win", wrote the Canberra native, who lost to Rafael Nadal in a four-set second round match in the All England Club. In May during the Rome Open, Kyrgios did not have good thoughts for Djokovic: “I just feel like he has a sick obsession with wanting to be liked.

I feel like he wants to be liked so much, I can’t stand it. He’s my polar opposite. He’s super salty every time I beat him", said the Australian. In June, after French Open, Djokovic said he offered help to Kyrgios five years ago.

Kyrgios will return to compete on the Tour later this month in the Washington Citi Open. Last year he withdrew from his opening round match against compatriot James Duckworth due to an injury. Djokovic won the last three matches played against Federer, including the most recent one in last year's Paris Masters.

Federer last beat the Belgrade native in the 2015 London ATP Finals groups stage.
