Nick Kyrgios goes off on critics of Novak Djokovic over the Australian Open debacle with an x-rated tirade.
In his attempt to compete in this year’s Australian Open, NOVAK DJOKOVIC has run into problems.
After Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic was stopped at the border on his way to the Australian Open, Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios launched an expletive-laden rant at his critics.
Djokovic is still being held in an immigration detention center, awaiting a hearing on Monday to determine whether or not he is allowed to enter the country and compete in the Grand Slam.
Lawyers for the Serbian player are working hard behind the scenes to clear him to compete in the tournament.
Djokovic has won the Australian Open nine times in total, including the last three.
However, there was outrage in Australia when reigning champion Djokovic, who has been outspoken in his opposition to being injected, was granted a medical exemption to enter the country.
Following his arrival in Melbourne this week, he was denied entry into Australia, with more information about his exemption or vaccination status required.
Even though the two have long been considered rivals, the issue has divided opinion in a way that has transcended the tennis world, and Kyrgios was not shy in delivering his thoughts on Djokovic’s critics.
“People say, ‘Oh, you’re siding with Novak,'” he explained on the No Boundaries podcast.
“I’m not on your side.
I just want him to be treated like a human.
“Would we expect our 20-time Grand Slam champion [from Australia]to be treated this way?”
“Hello, my name is Novak Djokovic.”
He backed us up during the bushfires.
“Most of the ordinary people who were talking s*** didn’t do anything to help with the bushfires.”
“I’m sure if they were in his shoes, some of these people who sit on their f****** couches and comment all day wouldn’t support [it].”
“To put this to rest, all I can say is that I hope it gets sorted out because it’s ridiculous right now.”
Djokovic’s lawyers claim that the player should have been granted a temporary VISA due to a recent Covid infection, according to new documents released on Saturday.
A PCR test on December 16 confirmed the 20-time Grand Slam winner’s Covid case, which had gone unnoticed previously.
However, controversy has erupted as a result of photos posted on Djokovic’s Twitter account showing him attending a ceremony.
