Nick Kyrgios has responded after Stefanos Tsitsipas branded him a “bully” after their four-set epic at Wimbledon. The Aussie defeated the top seed 6-7(2) 6-4 6-4 7-6(7) and has since claimed that the Greek is “not liked” on tour.
Kyrgios dispatched the fourth seed in the third round of Wimbledon in what was his second win over Tsitsipas in less than three weeks. The fiery clash saw both med receive code violations with the world No 40 arguing with the umpire and the Greek sending a ball into the stands in frustration.
After the match, the Greek was the first man into his post-match press conference and accused his opponent of being a “bully” as he said: “It’s constant bullying, that’s what he does. He bullies the opponents. He was probably a bully at school himself. I don’t like bullies.”
And Kyrgios has now responded, claiming that it was Tsitsipas himself who created a “circus” during their match while taking a dig at the 23-year-old for being “not liked” in the locker room.
