As Australia crashed to an early defeat to Great Britain in the United Cup in Sydney, Nick Kyrgios took to social media to return serve at team co-captain Lleyton Hewitt.
Australia’s campaign was dealt a huge blow on Friday when the country’s No.1 women’s player, Ajla Tomljanovic, withdrew from her match due to a left knee injury.
Australian legend Hewitt criticised Kyrgios’ communication to the team after he withdrew at the 11th hour. Kyrgios, after learning that Tomljanovic had also withdrawn, fired back at Hewitt.
“Mmm I wonder if [co-captain Sam] Stosur will throw her under the bus like our captain did for me … ‘hard to prepare when you don’t know what’s going on’,” Kyrgios tweeted in relation to Hewitt’s comments.
