'This takes the cake': Kyrgios hits out at Djokovic 'stupidity'Archive
Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios has taken aim at Novak Djokovic's “stupidity” after the world number one contracted coronavirus at an exhibition tennis tournament in the Balkans.
The final leg of the Adria Tour in Bosnia has been cancelled and Djokovic on Tuesday apologised for hosting the bungled event, admitting he and organisers “were wrong” to push ahead during the pandemic.
Djokovic, who was not showing any symptoms, joined fellow players Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Coric and Viktor Troicki in testing positive for Covid-19 during the second leg of the event, where social distancing was minimal and players embraced over the net.
Kyrgios on Tuesday retweeted a video of players including Djokovic dancing shirtless in a nightclub, saying he sent “prayers” to the players who had contracted the virus.
“Don't @ me for anything I've done that has been 'irresponsible' or classified as 'stupidity' — this takes the cake,” he wrote.
