'Do you have rocks in your head?': Nick Kyrgios' Savage Response To Tennis Rival
Nick Kyrgios has gone to town on tennis rival Borna Coric.
Croatian star Coric went after Kyrgios online after the Aussie publicly slammed event organiser Novak Djokovic and other players for attending the Adria Tour amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Coric, Djokovic and host of other high profile stars all tested positive for COVID-19 after the tournament resulting in Kyrgios labelling them as 'boneheaded' and 'selfish' among other things.
Now it appears Coric is the latest player to join Djokovic, Dominic Thiem and Alexander Zverev in going toe-to-toe with Kyrgios on social media.
He said: "I read what he wrote, but I simply don't care since he likes to be a 'general after a battle.'
"If someone else was teaching lessons I would have maybe understood, but Kyrgios ... It's somehow not realistic.
"But OK, it's his style, that's how he functions, I have no problem with that neither does it bother me on personal level."
Kyrgios, in typical fashion, responded brilliantly to Coric's remarks.
You should care. Do you have rocks in your head? Again, you can stand up for your mates, I'm just trying to hold them accountable. When I said what I said, I didn't intend to bother. They are tennis players, they aren't special. Just as I thought Coric intellectual level = 0 (:doughnut:) https://t.co/KNBa5mNG77

The Aussie tweeted: "You should care. Do you have rocks in your head?
"Again, you can stand up for your mates, I'm just trying to hold them accountable. When I said what I said, I didn't intend to bother. They are tennis players, they aren't special.
"Just as I thought Coric intellectual level = 0."
The brutal sledge was finished off with a simple donut emoji.
But just as everyone thought Kyrgios was finished with his public shaming, the Aussie continued by dishing out more blunt advice.
"Just making sure that you spuds didn't cause more players to feel like Dimitrov," he said.
"Have you read how he continued to feel after he tested negative? Or that's too much for that brain of yours to process?"
What Kyrgios is referring to is the case of Grigor Dimitrov.
The Bulgarian tennis ace recently came out and revealed he's still feeling the lasting effects of contracting the virus weeks ago.
And with a host of top European players still not taking the global pandemic seriously, you can totally understand Kyrgios' frustrations.
