Nick Kyrgios bantered by Novak Djokovic over Tsitsipas antics on Wimbledon practice courts | Tennis | Sport

Novak Djokovic and Nick Kyrgios had an exchange on the practice courts at Wimbledon ahead of the Aussie’s fourth-round clash with Brandon Nakashima. The top seed appeared to poke fun at the 27-year-old for his antics against Stefanos Tsitsipas on Saturday night while the world No 40 made a sarcastic remark about Djokovic’s match against his friend Thanasi Kokkinakis.

Kyrgios went for a last-minute hit an hour before his Wimbledon fourth-round match against Nakashima, and Djokovic passed by for his own practice at Aorangi Park. While the Aussie was rallying on court, the world No 3 bantered him and cracked a joke.

“You’re going straight for the opponent already,” he laughed, speaking to Kyrgios in what appeared to be a reference to Tsitsipas admitting he tried to hit the world No 40 with the ball during their fiery third round on Saturday night.

After a brief chat, the 27-year-old quipped back: “Thanasi played you into form,” referring to Djokovic’s second-round win over his countryman and friend Kokkinakis.
