Pat Cash once faomusly lost to a 14-year old Nadal after underestimating him and Kyrgios reacted to the story on social media platform Twitter.
Kyrgios is a rather active user of social media as the Australian tends to respond to fans and offer some of his thoughts on the platform. He reacted to a post from another user who recalled the story of a young Nadal beating Pat Cash during his prime years. Cash was supposed to play Becker in an exhibition in Mallorca in 2000. Not being able to make it, Becker was replaced by a 14-year-old Nadal.
Cash took the match lightly and he was beaten by Nadal in straight sets in the end. Recalling it in 2020, Cash said:
"99 percent of the kids would have choked and fallen apart. He was just tearing it up everywhere, all over the court, and hit some unbelievable winners. At the time, I was 38 and was still hitting the ball pretty well. I lost that match, I don’t remember what the score was, but it was close. He didn’t get nervous or anything.
Kyrgios reacted to that story on Twitter:
"Doesn’t really surprise me at all, pat cash wouldn’t win games now."
