“Novak Djokovic will never be the greatest,” says Nick Kyrgios in fresh attack

"Djokovic was put under pressure by his coach," says Carlos Moya


Nick Kyrgios has made a ridiculous claim about Novak Djokovic. The tennis player insists he will never consider the Serb the greatest of all time. Kyrgios has been a regular critic of the world number one in recent years.

He even branded Djokovic a ‘tool’ last week after he tried to intervene with Australian Open safety protocols. The Australian wasn’t finished there, though, with him using his social media to attack him again accompanied by the caption ‘I ain’t holding back.’

“No matter how many grand slams he wins, like, he will never be the greatest to me, simply because I’ve played him twice,” Kyrgios said. “And, I’m sorry, but if you can’t beat me you’re not the greatest of all-time.”

Novak Djokovic has never managed to beat Kyrgios, with the Australian beating him in their only two meetings to date. Djokovic has failed to ever even take a set from Kygrios.
