Nick Kyrgios who is involved in a rift with Boris Becker on social media has caught the attention of fans yet again.
The rift started when the Australian tennis player mentioned the name of Boris Becker in one of his comments. He said that comparing the era of Boris Becker and today’s era would be absurd as the game was slow in the decades.
Boris Becker also responded in a similar manner by questioning his credibility over his achievements in court. Kyrgios went a step further and made fun of hiding his assets in his bankruptcy case last year.
His response has triggered fans worldwide to share their opinions as they both are having a back-and-forth movement of comments. It has received mixed reactions from tennis fans, for and against the Australian. A fan shared his disappointment as Kyrgios compared his impact on the sport.
“Dude hasn’t won Slam in singles and comparing his impact to game of tennis to one of the BEST legend in our sport Boris Becker @TheBorisBecker?? What kind of weed is he smoking??“

While most of the fans were trolling and trashing Nick Kyrgios for his behavior and lack of accolades to speak against the former No.1 Boris Becker, there were a few who were still supporting him. A fan mentioned that he’s very enjoyable to watch and loves his spirit in a match.
Listen. I think you’re very enjoyable to watch. I love seeing spirit in the sport. You were also super nice to my son, a ball boy at the ATL open. So in my book, you are one of the good guys. 😎— Lulu Edmondson (@tennislulu) December 19, 2023
Listen to your heart, Kyrgio. That’s the only voice that matters.— Michael Stout (@mf_stout) December 19, 2023
“Went to prison, ran out of money” – Nick Kyrgios’s comments on Boris Becker’s prison charges which were put down
Nick Kyrgios and Becker’s battle on social media has dragged on till Tuesday when the Australian mocked Becker for running out of money and going to prison.
Amidst their rift, Boris Becker has asked Kyrgios to show respect for the past. Kyrgios feels that he has been responsible for bringing fans to tennis through Netflix’s Beak Point.
Kyrgios did not take anything lightly and brought up Becker’s prison charge to put him down. He pointed out that the German legend lived freely after the accusation.
“Hahahaha ONE WENT TO PRISON(ran out of money) the other is using his brand to make more. Goodnight”, Nick Kyrgios wrote.
Hahahaha ONE WENT TO PRISON. ( ran out of money) the other is using his brand to make more 😂😴😴😴😴 goodnight…..— Nicholas Kyrgios (@NickKyrgios) December 19, 2023
Even when a fan pointed out the fact that Nick was alleged by his ex-girlfriend on the account of the assault, Nick stood strong and said that the charges were dropped and he didn’t go to prison. While it was not the same with Becker.
Hmmm you might want to fact check that 👀 clean. Charges got dropped. Lived freely the whole time. Although not sure Boris had the same experience.— Nicholas Kyrgios (@NickKyrgios) December 19, 2023
