Kyrgios blasts 'tool' Djokovic & Tomic's girlfriend amid quarantine complaints
Nick Kyrgios took aim at Novak Djokovic after the world No. 1 reportedly sent a list of ‘demands’ to Australian Open chiefs about quarantine restrictions, while he accused Bernard Tomic’s girlfriend of having ‘no perspective’.
Kyrgios, the Australian who has become a surprising voice of sanity during the pandemic, was left unamused by a new report where Australian politicians publicly responded to a request from Djokovic for looser quarantine restrictions.
According to Spanish tennis website Punto de Break, Djokovic sent a letter to Australian Open tournament director Craig Tiley in an attempt to relax rules for tennis players affected by positive coronavirus tests on flights to Melbourne.
Positive Covid results from flights from LA, Abu Dhabi and Doha have left 72 players unable to practice in their two-week quarantine period ahead of the Australian Open.
Djokovic called for the length of isolation to be reduced, better quality of food, players to be allowed to see their coach, more fitness equipment and for as many players to be moved as possible to private houses with a tennis court to facilitate training. The requests, unsurprisingly, were flatly denied.
In the same news report relayed by Kyrgios, Tomic’s girlfriend, Vanessa Sierra, complained about food in their quarantine hotel room being cold, while she moaned that she would have to wash her own hair.
‘The celebration just kills me. Every time it does… it kills me. If I play him and beat him again, I’m doing the celebration in front of him [laughing]… that would be hilarious!’
Kyrgios and Djokovic could meet as early as the first round of the Australian Open.
