After many stars tested positive for Kovid-19 after participating in the tournament – which attracted large crowds and lacked social distance – Djokovic, his wife Jelena, three other players, three coaches and one player’s pregnant wife were canceled. Djokovic issued a statement saying he was sorry the tournament was “hurt.”

Alexander Zverev, one of the most negatively competitive and tested players, has announced on his social media that despite his negative test, he is cautiously self-isolated. However, a video posted on social media a few days later appeared to show the German party at the Monte Carlo nightclub.

Kyrgios, a frequent source of controversy in tennis, took to Twitter to criticize the 23-year-old Zverev and called him “selfish” for ignoring social distance guidelines.

Kyrgios said in an Instagram article, “If you dare to post a tweet, you have written to your management on your behalf. You are going to be 14 days of self-isolation and apologize to the general public.

Kyrgios has previously called the decision to host the Adria Tour “Bonehead”. Zverev’s management team did not immediately respond to CNN Sport’s request for comment.

‘#Rats don’t like it!’

However, former Djokovic coach Becker described Kyrgios as “rat” on Twitter for calling Zverev’s behavior.

“Don’t like the #Rats! It’s not my friend to tell a fellow athlete / woman! Look at yourself in the mirror and think your better than us … ick Nick Kyrgios,” Becker Said.
In answer, Kyrgios Said: “For goodness’ s sake, Boris, I’m not trying to compete or get anyone under the bus. If it’s a global pandemic and someone as stupid as Alex, to do what he’s done, I’ll call him.”
Becker then doubled, Speaking: “We all live in a pandemic #Covid19! This is horrible and it has killed so many lives … We need to protect our families / loved ones and follow guidelines, but still don’t like #Rots.”

The so-called “rat” by Kyrgios Becker is clearly not appreciated.

“Mice? Holding someone accountable? Strange way to think of a champion, I’m looking for people.” Said.

“When my family and families around the world are doing the right thing respectfully. And you’re aving a goose arms, say something to Imma.”

Later, Kyrgios went Call The three-time Wimbledon champion is “a bigger donut than I thought” and “clearly not the sharpest tool in the shed.”

Kyrgios has now voiced his criticism of the US Open, which takes place between August 24 and September 13.

‚ÄúPeople living in the US are pushing [for] Open to move forward. ‘Selfish,’ “he Wrote Twitter. “I’ll be ready for my hazmat suit when I’m traveling from Australia and then have to be detained for 2 weeks on my return.”
