Nick Kyrgios insists he has no problem with fellow Australian Bernard Tomic and is looking forward to their first meeting on Wednesday.
The duo will meet for the first time in the Kooyong Classic, with the media Down Under looking to whip up a storm between the two players after previous bad blood.
Tomic accused Kyrgios of faking illness to skip a crucial Davis Cup tie against the United States almost three years ago while Kyrgios hit back, claiming Tomic had “lost his way” after the pair opted to miss the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
The controversial Aussies have since made up and practised together and Kyrgios has made it clear that any supposed ill-feeling has been orchestrated by the press. “I’m looking forward to seeing him and catching up with him and playing against him,” he told AAP.
“We’re fine. I don’t have any bad blood with him at all. “It’s another chance to get some preparation before the Oz Open. Obviously I was pretty excited when I got drawn against him – we’re good mates so to get out there, I know what he’s going to bring, it’s going to be fun. “It’s going to be laid back so, yeah, it’s perfect preparation for me.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
