Nick Kyrgios was criticized for his response to the Australian Open bottom quarter half on Twitter
The first two rounds of the Australian Open have left several eliminated who seemed favorites to reach the final rounds. In particular, the last quarter is the one that has seen the biggest surprises, with the early elimination of players like Casper Ruud (2th seed), Taylor Fritz (8th seed), Alexander Zverev (12th seed) and Matteo Berretini (13th seed). In this way, there’ll be a surprise in one of the semifinalists.
After that, Nick Kyrgios responded to a comment that listed the players who are still in competition in that part of the draw:
“Nice Little 250 going on.”, said the 2022 Wimbledon runner-up.
The aussie announced his withdrawal of the first major of the season before the first round, due to an injury to his left knee, and was replaced by the lucky loser Denis Kudla.
From the eight players who'll fight to advance in this part of the draw, there are five Americans: Ben Shelton, Jeffrey John Wolf, Michael Mmoh, Tommy Paul and Jenson Brooksby. Also, the local Alexei Poiryn, the Spaniard 24th seed Roberto Bautista Agut, and the three-time Grand Slam Champion Andy Murray.
Fan criticism came quickly especially comparing Kyrgios' career to Andy Murray's. For example, one of the fans posted an image with both players head-to-head (Murray leads 6-1), and wrote "clown like always.” Another fan said that “Murray has more talent in his metal hip than you will ever have.”
There were also fans who mock Kyrgios' results last year:
“You make two quarterfinals in a year and you think you’re some Slam stalwart.”
“Says the guy who beat Nakashima, Garin and w/o to reach Wimby final.”
“If you were good in Slams as you are good in “blab la bla”, you would have won 20 Slams.”
