There are still three weeks until the start of the Australian Open (and almost two weeks of quarantine for tennis players that some of them will have to comply strictly with) and tensions continue on the measures decreed to prevent an increase in infections for coronavirus during the tournament.
In addition to the complaints of tennis players like Paula Badosa, who revealed his strict quarantine situation in AS, or Yulia Putintseva, who found a mouse in his room, lThe complaints have risen in tone with the requests of Novak Djokovic to the tournament to establish more flexible measures. Measures that the Australian authorities have completely rejected.
Taking advantage of the response of the Australian authorities to Djokovic, Nick Kyrgios, one of the biggest scourges of the Serbian during the pandemic and, in turn, one of the tennis players who has shown the most concern about the virus, He wanted to attack the Serbian again through social networks.
Djokovic is a tool. I don’t mind Bernie but his Mrs obviously has no perspective, ridiculous scenes 🤦🏽♂️ https://t.co/MMgeriH2GJ

Kyrgios shared a tweet from tennis journalist Ben Rothenberg in which various points of view on the quarantine in Melbourne are collected (“the tone of the coverage in the Down Under”, Rothenberg ironized), in which Djokovic appears without a mask in the minibus, in addition to the statements of the head of government from the state of Victoria, Daniel Andrews, and several videos of the tennis players in their rooms with special emphasis on the quarantine of the Australian tennis player Bernard Tomic with his girlfriend Vanessa Sierra. “Djokovic is stupid. I don’t care about Bernie (for Tomic), but his mistress obviously has no perspective. Ridiculous scenes,” next to an emoji of a person putting their hand to their face. Waiting for what happens between the meetings between tennis players and organizers, Kyrgios does not cease in his criticism of Djokovic for the Serbian’s attitude off the courts since the pandemic began.
