“Selfish” – Nick Kyrgios slams ATP over US Open plans

Nick Kyrgios has angrily reacted to recent updates from the ATP Tour that they are backing plans for the US Open to go ahead


Nick Kyrgios thinks that the first Grand Slam event since the pandemic started should be cancelled. The outspoken Australian start took to Twitter calling out the organisers of worldwide men’s tennis as being selfish and also referring to the race riots going on in America as another reason that the US open tournament shouldn’t be played as planned from 24th August to 13th September.

Kyrgios said on Twitter, “The ATP is trying to make the US Open go ahead. Selfish with everything going on at the moment. Obviously Covid, but also with the riots, together we need to overcome these challenges before tennis returns in my opinion.”

Kyrgios also directly called on the ‘Big 3’ of Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal for their opinions about the Grand Slam going ahead. As of yet none have replied.
