After a host of stars tested positive for Covid-19 after participating in the tournament – which drew large crowds and where social distancing was not in place – including Djokovic, his wife Jelena, three other players , three coaches and one pregnant player, the competition was canceled. Djokovic also issued a statement in which he regrets that the tournament “has caused damage”.
One of the players who competed but tested negative, Alexander Zverev, announced on his social media that despite his negative test, he would self-isolate as a precaution. However, a video that emerged on social media days later appeared to show the German partying at a Monte Carlo nightclub.
Often the source of controversy in tennis, Kyrgios took to Twitter to criticize Zverev, 23, calling him “selfish” for ignoring the rules of social distancing.
“If you have the audacity to f *** ing post a tweet, which you have had your management write on your behalf, saying that you are going to self-isolate for 14 days and apologize to the general public at About putting their health at risk, at least be bold enough to stay indoors for 14 days, ”Kyrgios said on an Instagram story.
Kyrgios had previously called the decision to host Adria’s tour “headless.” Zverev’s management team did not immediately respond to CNN Sport’s request for comment.
“I 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 didn’t appreciate being called a “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, I want to say something.”
Kyrgios also voiced his criticism of the postponement of the US Open, which is currently scheduled to run from August 24 to September 13.
