PCB and Kyrgios Take It Up A Notch

G.O.A.T.
PCB in response to the Kyrgios barbs from earlier in the week:

He must be pretty bored… when he comes back to tournaments, we will talk about him because he deserves it and in the meantime, well nothing, he will continue to tweet from home.”


Then "Big Man" Nick takes to Instagram stories with a screenshot of the 2-0 ATP H2H with a caption that screams 'I'm too cool for school':
"Obviously would love to be playing the US Open but due to conditions didn't feel comfortable. Yes Carreno Busta I'm a little bored and I would rather be chopping you again. 2-0 #shhh"
 
Kyrgios tried to say the ratings were down because explosive players like himself and Fognini weren’t there and yet failed to realize he’s never even done anything of note at the US Open. I mean gee at least Millman beat Fed at the USO. Kyrgios has done **** all.
Yeah, quite funny from him considering the elephant in (read: out of) the room that is the absence of Fedal.

Why exactly is he picking on PCB? This is beyond ridiculous. I support Kyrgios on his thoughts on the virus but really he wiped all of that out with this unnecessary attention seeking nonsense. I am so glad Rafa refused to even talk to him over a video call. I am sure he would have tried to trigger Rafa.

not brave enough.

He only disses people in tweets and instagram stories, behind their backs on podcasts, or by muttering vulgarities about their girlfriends' sex lives when they aren't listening.

Sad.

Look as an Aussie I support Kyrgios but he’s so far beyond being wrong on this. He made out like PCB is weak on hard courts and yet he’s now made 2 USO slam SF’s while Kyrgios has never made a USO 4R!!. He needs to shut the **** up already.
The weird thing is PCB has done absolutely nothing to provoke this

Kyrgios just going out of his way to bully a colleague

Kyrgios’ biggest claim to fame is still something he did 6 years ago. He’s the definition of a clown or a flash in the pan.

Nick dude we know you’re here. You post just like one of TTW’s insecure meme lords with anger memegent issues.

Just do an AMA already. It’s not like you don’t have the time.

PCB gonna win the whole damn thing, sorry to tell you that.

I like the trash talk. He’s not hurting anyone. Though it loses its impact when you don’t show up. Should have sat this one out.
This is not trash talk. This is stupidity at his finest. He’s not hurting anyone? You sure? PCB is hours away from one of his most important match and this clown can’t let him prepare correctly? This is so disrespectful.
And by the way trash talk was used on the court, actually competing. Kyrgios is so far from competing, he’s just a grown up bully

It is more in the vein of the French classics, not modern psychology, but you don't need to know that.

Yet more psycho-babble from you.
It would be laughable except for its very dangerous implications:
Nobody is allowed to criticize anybody.

Nick Kyrgios can sometimes be funny but sometimes he should just shut up. I still think that one day he will be red hot for a couple of weeks and win a slam, but he doesn't have the discipline to consistently do it...

People like to criticise the faults in others that they fail to recognise in themselves.

How canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother's eye.

PCB is only two matches away from winning an actual slam. Kyrgios could only dream of being that close to a slam at this point.

Almost makes you miss those days of Tomic staying quiet outside of tournaments.
Tomic wasn't even a bad guy at all. He just didn't care about the sport and I don't think he ever wanted to be the face of Australian tennis in the first place. Kyrgios on the other hand clearly needs the attention and doesn't care about making his country look bad. Just keep throwing sh*t at the wall and seeing what the tabloids run with.

In a way, I can understand the Djokovic/Nadal jabs. Those 2 are super popular and it would probably get him the most attention from the mainstream media. But PCB? I know he just reached a slam semifinal but he’s achieved literally nothing important. No disrespect to him, but he’s such a random and weird target. He’s done nothing to anyone, and if he has it needs to be kept in the locker room and not aired out on social media.

Also anyone notice that Nick has to pull out the H2H’s against these players every time? PCB has more slam success, a higher career rank, and has been in the Top 10 before (Nick hasn’t). He’s also currently ranked higher, so Nick quite literally only has the H2H against him.

I don’t get it anymore, it’s like he’s going after anyone at this point.

He does that because it feeds into his delusion that if he only "tried" consistently, he would be at the top of the game. Of course, trying means showing you care and it opens you to the possibility of failing in spite of that. And since he has the emotional maturity of a teenager, he can't deal with that possibility.
