Nick Kyrgios is well known for his erratic behavior on court and on line. The Australian can beat and lose to everyone on court, and on line he is always ready to troll or make fun of people.
Who the hell is Tom Rinaldi?
Just out of the blue, the Australian took aim at Tom Rinaldi, that is a respected reporter for ESPN, to say:
“Who the hell is Tom Rinaldi and why he is commentating a tennis match when he has no idea what’s going on.”

Kyrgios’ interview with Rinaldi
ESPN had the brilliant idea to make Rinaldi do the Kyrgios’ pre-match interview on the same day of Nick’s tweet. The Australian looked completely surprised by that, and he wasn’t even able to see the interviewer in his eyes. Of course, ESPN tweeted the encounter superimposing Kyrgios’s tweet on the clip. Nick ended up losing that match (vs. Rublev) in straight sets 7-6 (5) 7-6 (5) 6-3.
