Novak Djokovic’s unbeaten run this year attracted everyone’s attention. The number one in the world has won 20 games since the beginning of the year, without losses. Many are now debating whether Djokovic could end 2020 without a single defeat. Among all the attention that Djokovic’s record has captured, one look in particular – and which Novak Djokovic would not be too happy with – is that of Nick Kyrgios.
The Australian expressed his opinion on Twitter, on Djokovic’s comments on the possibility that the year will remain undefeated. The Serbian superstar chose not to jump the gun. He said he will be happy if he manages to reach the finish line, but that’s not his goal.
Nick Kyrgios takes another shot at “unbeaten” Novak Djokovic
“Anything is possible… I don’t want to count it, because we don’t know what the post-American tour will be like… but it’s a long way. It’s not my goal to stay undefeated, but I wouldn’t complain if I did. “ Novak Djokovic She said after beating Tennys Sandgren at the Western and Southern Open.
Giving his views on this, Kyrgios applauded Djokovic’s efforts. But then it was his usual ironic when he took a dig at Djokovic who was visibly headed for the evil Adria Tour.
“A great tennis player. It could remain undefeated in 2020, I can’t take it away “, Kyrgios he wrote. “Unfortunately when he should have shown some leadership and humility he disappeared. Most would say they took an L (loss) regardless “, Kyrgios added.
The heart of the matter
Nick Kyrgios has criticized the likes of Borna Coric, Alexander Zverev, Grigor Dimitrov and Djokovic on multiple occasions for the Adria Tour incident. Players, with the exception of Zverev, tested positive for the coronavirus after images sometimes surfaced of them ignoring social distancing protocols. Kyrgios and Coric also had a fight on Twitter.
Recently, Djokovic finally talked about the Adria Tour event he organized. He said it’s wrong to blame one person for the whole accident. He also said he feels sorry for those infected during the event, but he doesn’t feel guilty.
Even during his announcement not to play in the US Open, Kyrgios criticized Djokovic and the others. He said he hopes some “selfish gamers” will follow security protocols in New York.
