After a host of stars have tested positive for Covid-19 after participating in the tournament – which attracted large crowds and where social distancing was not in place – including Djokovic, his wife Jelena, three other players , three coaches and a woman player enclosure, the competition has been canceled. Djokovic also issued a statement in which he regretted that the tournament “caused harm”.
One of the players who competed but proved negative, Alexander Zverev, announced on his social networks that, despite his negative test, he would isolate himself as a precaution. However, a video posted on social media a few days later seemed to show the German party in a Monte-Carlo nightclub.
Kyrgios, often the source of controversy in tennis, turned to Twitter to criticize Zverev, 23, calling him “selfish” for ignoring social distance guidelines.
“If you have the audacity to f *** ing publish a tweet, that you have written to your management on your behalf, saying that you will isolate yourself for 14 days and apologizing to the general public f ** * ing about endangering their health, have at least the audacity to stay indoors for 14 days, “said Kyrgios on an Instagram story.
Kyrgios had previously called the decision to host Adria’s tour a “cool head.” Zverev’s management team did not immediately respond to CNN Sport’s request for comment.
“Don’t like # rats!”
However, Djokovic’s former coach Becker described Kyrgios as a “rat” on Twitter for speaking out against Zverev’s behavior.
Kyrgios clearly did not like being called “rat” by Becker.
“WHEN my family and families around the world have respectfully done the right thing. And you have a goose waving its arms, say something.”
Kyrgios also voiced criticism of the rescheduled US Open, which is slated to run from August 24 to September 13.
