Nick Kyrgios clapped back at Pat Rafter calling him clueless after he commented on the behaviour of Kyrgios and Kokkinakis being annoying to other players.
Pat Rafter made some comments recently where he claimed that Kyrgios and Kokkinakis are not well-liked by their colleagues due to their behaviour. The former player said it's mostly their behaviour on the court which is perceived as disrespectful:
"It's an interesting one that is, because the players are really upset about it. I don't know how that operates with them and doesn't really bother me either way. It's a bit of a circus...Doubles is a great event, it's a lot of fun, and it helps you with singles, but it's not where it's at. But at the same time, it's entertainment."
Kyrgios and Kokkinakis did create a mayhem atmosphere last year at the Australian Open which some problem said was problematic. Rafter added:
"If they create drama, create ticket sales, and they create people watching, then good on them, but at what expense, I don't know. The players are really upset. Are you supposed to understand the underwritten rule that that's not how you behave when you do?"
Kyrgios responded to that on Twitter:
"He would have absolutely zero idea on what the locker room thinks. Me and kokk have great relationships with most of the players on tour. Guy is clueless."
