Nick Kyrgios called ‘evil’ and a ‘bully’ by defeated Wimbledon opponent Stefanos Tsitsipas

Stefanos Tsitsipas, who lost to Nick Kyrgios in a hard-fought encounter at Wimbledon on Saturday, claimed that the Australian’s persona had a “evil side.”

Tsitsipas and Kyrgios continued their on-court fight after the match, with Kyrgios defeating Tsitsipas 6-7(2) 6-4 6-3 7-6(7) in four sets on Court One.

At one point, Tsitsipas tried to hit Kyrgios with a shot because he was fed up with his opponent’s “continuous bullying” on the other side of the net.

The umpire reprimanded Kyrgios for swearing during the match, but Tsitsipas wasn’t punished for sending a ball into the crowd out of fury, leaving Kyrgios fuming.

“That’s exactly what he does—constant bullying. He intimidates those who stand in his way. He may have been a bully in high school. I’m not a fan of those who bully others “After the match, Tsitsipas spoke to the media.

“I’m not a fan of folks who disparage others. In addition, he possesses certain admirable qualities. But he also has a dark side that can do a lot of hurt and pain to those around him if it is exposed.”
Handshakes were exchanged between the two when the contest ended.

Handshakes were exchanged between the two players at the end of the match.
When Kyrgios was asked about his opponent’s comments, he called them “soft.” Kyrgios has already made headlines at Wimbledon for his tantrums and daring strokes.

When asked about the Greek after the match, he claimed he had a lot of respect for him.

“I’m at a loss for words. I’m not sure what I did to make him feel threatened. the one who threw the ball, he was the one who smacked it out of the stadium, and I’m the one who was struck by it “Kyrgios spoke to the media after advancing to the last 16 of the tournament.

“I didn’t treat Stefanos disrespectfully today. I didn’t have a sledgehammer ready to whack him. What a weak excuse to come into a room like this and claim, “I bullied him.” We don’t share the same genetic heritage. I’m pitted against some of the best athletes in the world.” You should know that I have a lot of pals in the locker room. Actually, I’m a favorite. Settled. He’s not popular. Then, we can just place it there.”

The ball was fired into the crowd and Tsitsipas acknowledged to trying to harm Kyrgios with a body shot after the match.

This was a new kind of play for him. I’m not a robot, and I can’t just sit there and pretend to be someone who is utterly cold and calculating.” There is a reason why you’re on the court and the other side is making noise for no apparent purpose.

“Throughout today’s game, I had the distinct impression that there was some sort of drama taking place on the opposite end of the net.

“To some extent, that’s how he gets the upper hand by distracting you. This is a unique ability that no other player possesses. Hopefully, we as athletes can work together to create an improved version of our game in which such conduct is not permitted or tolerated at all.”

When asked if Tsitsipas should be more concerned with beating Kyrgios than finding a way to do so, Kyrgios replied, “I think he should be.”
“If I were to lose two weeks in a row to the same person, I would be devastated. Maybe he should try to beat me a few more times before deciding to do so “The Australian added.
