During their Laver Cup clash, Tiafoe was spotted reffering to Stefanos Tsisipas as Greek Yogurt saying:
"I want all that Greek Yogurt"
One day after the match it was reposted by Eurosport with the caption of what Tsitsipas said and Nick Kyrgios took notice. He responded with:
"Pause, bro" with a number of laughing emojis and Tiafoe responded to that comment with four laughing emojis of his own.
"We appreciated that our matches were something different" - Nadal on the legacy of the 'Fedal' rivalry
Tennis fans were not happy and they blasted the duo for 'bullying' Tsitsipas. One fan wrote:
"Frances Tiafoe is still laughing at his bullying and doesn't seem to regret it as can be seen from his comment below the posted Eurosport video"
"Yeah n if tsitsipas would have done the same PPL would cry foul for racism.tiafoe seems to do this n i m glad brooksby gave him taste f his own medicine earlier."
Another pointed out that Kyrgios commenting on it made it worse due to his Greek heritage:
"NK getting involved makes it even worse ugh"
