In his words: “Not once have I taken ‘slams’ away from Becker, or any of these legends. Not once have I said I’ve impacted the game MORE. I’ve simply said that I’ve built my own brand and done it my way & brought fans. Apparently, a slam finalist has no credibility. Night, done with this convo.” Kyrgios took a moment to highlight his unique approach to the sport and again emphasized that he has built his own brand and brought fans to the game. The tweet implied a frustration with the perception that even after being a Grand Slam finalist his credibility is under scrutiny.

It reflects Kyrgios’ desire to be recognized for his individuality and contributions to the sport. However, things have been said by both sides. Kyrgios was ever ready with his snarky comments and Becker responded with satirical replies.
