Kyrgios’ feud with Boris Becker yet again comes in the limelight

Both of them have been stirring the pot for quite some time now. It started in 2020 when Boris Becker had called Kyrgios a ‘rat’ over an incident. The Aussie came at the 56-year-old German legend with a ‘doughnut’ taunt. The former no.1 yet again came back at Kyrgios earlier this year by putting up a question about his knee injury. The former 13 gave it back to the German citing neither Becker nor any other legends of the game during his era could make it in the modern game.

There has been a series of exchanges between the two recently. Commenting on the previous remark, Becker said it’s because of those legends the Aussie can make a living from tennis without playing all year. To this Kyrgios then got a bit personal and dragged Boris Becker’s bankruptcy incident and consequent jail terms to shut his mouth.
