Nick Kyrgios and John McEnroe are one in the same…
McEnroe, the tennis legend, was coaching the Australian Kyrgios in his 2018 Laver Cup match against the great Roger Federer… Things got HEATED.
Kyrgios was trailing 6-3, 3-1, and had the advantage to Federer. The Australian plater looked to have his way back to deuce when an odd early call came from the linesman and made them replay the point.
The serve was un-returnable and rules are rules but this is where the chaos started:
“So, you’re telling me (the umpire) called it before Roger hit it?,” Kyrgios said to the umpire, who replied with a simple “yes.”
“You are delusional.”
McEnroe interrupted: “Wait a minute. Wait a minute.”
“You’re gonna say that that affected his return?”
The umpire responded: “Well, that’s questionable.”
