One response from a fan took the hilarious route, as he said that Kyrgios was trying to jinx Djokovic.

Noting his statement “as a professional”, one fan reminded everyone of the fact that Kyrgios also believed that Matteo Berrettini would be the only one who could take down Djokovic in Wimbledon. He was proved wrong as Carlos Alcaraz became the only one to defeat the Djoker in Wimbledon in over five years.

One fan had sarcasm dripping in their comment as they said that it was a bold prediction. They followed it up by saying Kyrgios definitely knows tennis, but not when it comes to playing the sport.

Using his statement, another fan gave their “professional opinion”. They said that Shelton would be a wall in front of Djokovic and give him a tough fight. Additionally, they said that Kyrgios is jealous of Shelton and Alcaraz due to their achievements in the sport.

One fan launched an outright attack on the Aussie player and said that Shelton is better than him which evokes itself in the comment.
