Nick Kyrgios and Stefanos Tsitsipas are great friends even if they have a completely different approach to tennis. The Australian and the Greek had a great clash during the ATP Cup, but unfortunately it was Stefanos to have a “Kyrgios’ moment” when he couldn’t contain his rage and hurt his own father while smashing his racket. The episode happened soon after Stefanos lost the first set tiebreak.

After the match, Nick was asked to comment about the episode to reply:
“I didn’t see it. I don’t think he meant it as well. I don’t think you guys should be giving it too much attention or looking too far into it, to be honest.
I’ve done some stupid things as well in the heat of the moment. It was obviously an accident.”
