Say what you want about the whole Nick Kyrgios/Stan Wawrinka kerfuffle that’s been going down over the past couple of days. But you can’t deny that tennis has suddenly become interesting as shit as a result. More so than usual.
“If you’re going to come and openly … it’s not even sledging, that’s openly slandering someone after a match then I guess you can expect a bit of sledging back when you play them next.”
During that tournament Kyrgios – an asthmatic – was suffering a legitimate sinus infection – an excuse Wawrinka didn’t buy.
“I understand that Christos, the difference here is he’s dragged innocent parties into it. He’s dragged young Kokkinakis into it and more to the point, Donna Vekic…”
And at that point, the line went dead. Show co-host Chris Page provided an explanation shortly thereafter.
“Sorry, we’ve just had to dump Christos. He said something pretty crook.”
Whilst the offending comment never made it to air, it’s understood that Christos remarked “She likes Kokk” in reference to Vekic and Nick’s good mate/fellow tennis pro Thanasi Kokkinakis.
