The controversy between Bernard Tomic and Nick Kyrgios countinues. The two Australian tennis player have not stopped reserving very heavy and challenging considerations for each other through their social channels. The two Australians have attracted the attention of the tennis world in recent days for a very hard exchange on Instagram, with words that are anything but friendly towards the compatriot.
Kyrgios did not like the thought, replying in a sharp way without mincing words: "Who is the best among us in our prime? Well, always me. Who is stronger between me and Tomic? Me. I have multiple titles. Also, unlike him, I beat Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.
Does he think he's stronger than me? I think it's a bit of a stretch. Although in general we all know what Bernard is capable of." The issue continued over the course of the hours and the players became the protagonists of other interesting curtains.

The attack was again launched by Tomic: "I'm better than you and you know it. I've always beaten you. If you want, we can also fight in a ring." Nick's further reply is inevitable: "Brother, right now I'm very busy playing in the elite.
They are still on the ATP Tour, easily beating many of the best in the world. I know you are at the Future and Challenger level, but play and rank up to find us on the pitch. I don't have time to fight with you, I'm preparing my ride on the grass, playing Wimbledon, and then there's the US Open," he added and concluded, closing - who knows if for a short or long period - the exchange between the two.
There are four tournaments played this year by Nick Kyrgios, who undoubtedly showed off in the 2022 edition of the Australian Open, winning double together with Thanasi Kokkinakis. Good results also came in Indian Wells (he surrendered to the then winner Rafael Nadal - ed.), Miami, where he was defeated by the blue Jannik Sinner, and Houston, in his great return to clay.
