LONDON, United Kingdom (AF) — Nick Kyrgios told Andy Murray that he was better than world No. 1 Novak Djokovic, claiming that the Serb “dodges” his serve while the Scot “is on it like a light.”
By his own estimate Kyrgios had drunk six glasses of wine when he logged on from his Canberra home for an Instagram Live chat with Murray that started after midnight for the Australian.
“My knowledge and interest in red wine has gone incredibly up during this quarantine,” said Kyrgios, well known for his withering comments about leading tennis players, even though the undeniably talented world number 40 has never gone beyond the quarterfinals of a major championship.
Murray, however, appears to be one of his few rivals Kyrgios respects with the Scot having defeated Djokovic in both the 2012 US Open and 2013 Wimbledon finals.
