Nick Kyrgios seemingly sided with Holger Rune and shaded Stan Wawrinka after Rune and Wawrinka exchanged a couple of words at the net following their Indian Wells match. In late 2022, Wawrinka told Rune at the Paris Masters "to stop acting like a baby." On Monday, Rune was beaten by Wawrinka in a three-set Indian Wells thriller.
After the match was over, Rune stopped Wawrinka at the net and asked him, "You've got nothing to say now?" Wawrinka seemed a bit confused and asked Rune what he wanted him to say. Kyrgios, who has a bit of history of Wawrinka, also shared his thoughts on the situation.
Kyrgios shades Wawrinka: All good when you win
“Hahahaha yeah all good when you win… typical. Holger Rune with you my brother," Kyrgios captioned his Instagram Story.
Meanwhile, Rune received some criticism for his actions after the Wawrinka match.

On Tuesday, Rune shared a message on his Instagram Story, telling "unintelligent" hecklers to think twice before posting something on the internet. "Before you write hate or s----- comments on my or any account you should be aware of how the majority read your comment and see you as unintelligent.
Harsh judgements are handed out so people feel better about themselves, but everyone (if of average or above average intelligence can see that they are hurting and have been brought down by something that has them feeling defensive (jealousy - so they become critical of others hoping to restore their self esteem.
Needless to say with no luck," Rune said in a message posted on his Instagram Story. Meanwhile, it was the second meeting between Rune and Wawrinka. When Rune and Wawrinka met in Paris last year, the Dane claimed a win. This time, Wawrinka got his revenge as he defeated Rune in a three-set thriller.
After the match, Wawrinka also warned Rune that he will "regret one day the reputation he is making for himself."
