Australian Nick Kyrgios revealed the stream of messages he received after a prank pulled off by fellow tennis buddy Stefanos Tsitsipas. The Aussie star turned 25 years old on Monday and was the victim of Tsitsipas' prank where the Greek star posted the Australian's phone number on his own social media account.
Tsitsipas’ post was an image of himself holding up a cardboard sign which he captioned: “Lift others up” and the sign contained a mobile number. The number was an Australian number and fans soon realised that it belonged to the Aussie tennis star Nick Kyrgios.
Kyrgios commented on the post: “You are an absolute idiot, everyone stop calling me!!!!!” On Tuesday, Kyrgios showed the messages he received after the prank on his social media account.
Somebody please give Nick Kyrgios a new phone number.
Kyrgios turned 25 years old on Monday and the Australian continued to make headlines with some of his comments in recent weeks even as the tennis tour is shutdown.
Kyrgios was one of the few players who did not support Roger Federer's proposal of merging the ATP & WTA Tours. He also criticized the decision of the Madrid Masters to hold a virtual pro event and the delay in the ATP's decision to support the lower ranked players during the current shutdown.
