The feud between tennis superstars Nick Kyrgios and Stefanos Tsitsipas has been re-ignited with the Aussie firing up on social media.
Tsitsipas was quoted as saying Kyrgios was the one who broke their friendship at Wimbledon last year, as the messy fallout from that famous third-round match continues.

During a fiery encounter, Kyrgios was fined $5872 by the All England Club for obscene language and Tsitsipas was whacked with a $14,680 fine for unsportsmanlike conduct when he hit the ball into the crowd.
Kyrgios, who won the match, had called for Tsitsipas to be disqualified for the incident, with the Greek star later saying the Australian had an “evil side” to him and he was a “bully”.
Tsitsipas, who lost to Novak Djokovic in the final of the Australian Open last month, addressed their relationship in comments to Greek news outlet Tromaktiko.
“He was the one who broke our relationship. I didn’t do anything,” he said.
“In 2022 Wimbledon I was only trying to compete, while he was playing the clown. It also depends on how he wakes up each day.”
After seeing that quote on Twitter, Kyrgios was quick to remind his rival of who won the match.
He also had another crack on Instagram, saying it was an “embarrassing quote”.
The dynamic duo became the most unlikely doubles pairing after teaming up at a tournament in Saudi Arabia in December.
Although, that wasn’t by choice as they were automatically paired with each other after losing their opening singles match.
There was another spark between the pair late last year when Kyrgios withdrew from the United Cup and Tsitsipas said it was “not a surprise.”
Kyrgios is recovering from knee surgery that forced him out of the Australian Open last month.
He was also in court last week when an assault charge against him was dismissed by a magistrate after the star pleaded guilty to shoving his ex-girlfriend to the ground in 2021.
