- ‘I’m not quite sure how he can’t respect me off the court’
- Australian beats Frederico Ferreira Silva 6-4, 6-4, 6-4
Nick Kyrgios has called Novak Djokovic a “strange cat” as their feud continued on the opening day of the Australian Open. Djokovic had said on Sunday that he had no respect for Kyrgios off the court after the Australian had been critical of the world No 1’s actions during the coronavirus pandemic.
Kyrgios spoke out against the ill-fated exhibition event that Djokovic organised in the summer which observed no social distancing and saw a number of the players contract Covid-19 after partying at a nightclub and again spoke out against the Serbian for making a list of requests for players who were stuck in quarantine.
