Tennis stars trade verbal volleys
BORIS Becker and Nick Kyrgios have traded verbal volleys on Twitter after the German branded the Aussie a “rat”.
And Kyrgios hit back by accusing the triple Wimbledon champion of being “not the sharpest tool in the shed” and a “doughnut”.
The Aussie called Becker’s fellow German Alex Zverev “selfish” when the world No.7 was filmed at a Monte Carlo nightclub when he was supposed to be self-isolating.
Zverev took part in the Adria Tour events which saw world No.1 Novak Djokovic contract coronavirus.
Becker took to Zverev’s defence and tweeted: “Don’t like no #rats ! Anybody telling off fellow sportsman/woman is no friend of mine! Look yourself in the mirror and think your better than us.”
He added: “We all live in the pandemic called #Covid_19 ! It’s terrible and it killed to many lives…we should protect our families/loved ones and follow the guidelines but still don’t like #rats @NickKyrgios.”
World No.40 Kyrgios hit back by tweeting: “@TheBorisBecker is a bigger doughnut than I thought. Face with tears of joy. Can hit a volley, obviously not the sharpest tool in the shed though.” – www.mirror.co.uk
