Nick Kyrgios strikes back once again! The Australian tennis player, currently not playing on the tour due to the pandemic, continues to attack other players on the Tour with an attitude that is in some ways excessive. After Zverev, Coric, Boris Becker, Djokovic and recently Karen Khachanov, this time it is Sebastian Korda's turn.
The rising American player has been the great revelation of this Roland Garros and innocent protagonist of a social affair with the Australian tennis player. Korda is one of the most talented class of 2000 around and has reached the fourth round of Roland Garros, where he lost in straight sets to Rafael Nadal.
The son of former tennis players Regina Rajchrtova and 1998 Australian Open winner Petr Korda had an excellent week in Paris but fell short against world number two Rafael Nadal.
The social clash between Kyrgios and the innocent Korda
Sebastian Korda before the match candidly admitted that Rafael Nadal was his idol and even revealed that he has great admiration for the Spaniard player: "He is an incredible player.
I called my cat after him, this says a lot about how much you love him "After the match, meeting where Rafa left the crumbs to the youngest American colleague, Korda posted a post on social media with the shirt signed by his great idol; Korda defined this moment as "the happiest moment of his life 'and this thing was not appreciated by Kyrgios who criticized on social networks the mentality of the tennis player and his behavior, adding that Rafael Nadal literally destroyed him!
In recent weeks, many tennis players have criticized Kyrgios' attitude, outside the circuit, but full of himself to criticize any tennis player or former tennis player on the circuit. After harsh statements about Wilander, Karen Khachanov also intervened reminding the Australian that he had to show respect and that he was exaggerating.
