Video: Opelka continues feud with tennis media in reaction to Nadal interview

Reilly Opelka has made it well known he's not a fan of tennis journalists, with the American often expressing his frustration with the coverage of the sport.

It therefore came as no surprise when the World No.25 had some choice words for the media after viewing an interview session involving Rafael Nadal. The Spaniard was coming off his recent ATP Melbourne Summer Set title run, and was questioned by a reporter who made some factual errors.

“I just wanted to ask, you haven’t reached the semifinals at the Australian Open since you won the title in 2009," said the reporter to the Spaniard. "I just wondered if there’s anything you find difficult or challenging about the conditions compared to other Grand Slams.”

Unfazed by the reporters inaccuracy, Nadal laughed it off and responded with "I am very sorry to tell you, I don’t want to, but I have been in the final of 2012, ‘14, ‘17, ‘18… Sorry to correct you.”

Opelka apparently caught wind of this interaction and took a shot at tennis media on Twitter, posting the clip with the caption "But tennis media is good right?”

The big-serving American has always questioned the professionalism of tennis journalists, and wasted little time in firing another shot at tennis media.
