Nick Kyrgios Takes To Twitter To Troll Novak Djokovic Over US Open Incident
It didn't take long.
Nick Kyrgios wasted little time in letting Novak Djokovic know his feelings on the infamous line judge incident.
And unsurprisingly, the Aussie wasn't too impressed.
World number one Djokovic's unbeaten run in 2020 came to an end at Flushing Meadows.
The Serbian star made headlines as he was kicked out of the US Open for hitting a line judge in the throat with a tennis ball.
Fans were quick to pile in with some accusing him of doing it on purpose while others claimed it was a freak accident.
It didn't matter either way as Djokovic was booted from the tournament and the victory was handed to his opponent Pablo Carreno Busta.

And while it didn't take long for fans to take aim at the Serb, one familiar face in particular had his fingers on the pulse when the news of Djokovic's disqualification broke.

Djokovic will likely be slapped with a ban and a fine for his actions, but Kyrgios (who isn't exactly Djokovic's biggest fan) took to social media to ask supporters what his punishment would be if it was he who had hit a line judge in the throat with a ball.
The Aussie posted a poll on Twitter, captioned: "Swap me for jokers incident. 'Accidentally hitting the ball kid in the throat' how many years would I be banned for?"
The three options on the poll were 5 years, 10 years or 20 years.
It goes without saying, but it's hard to imagine Djokovic will get a ban anywhere close to even 5 years.

It's certainly not the first time Kyrgios has called out Djokovic for his questionable actions.
The two went back and forth earlier this year when Kyrgios publicly criticised the world number one for hosting the Adria Tour exhibition tournament during the middle of the coronavirus pandemic - compounded by the fact that Djokovic and host of players actually contracted the virus after a night of partying.
Aussie sensation Kyrgios isn't one to bite his tongue, but you can't exactly blame him for his frustrations.
And this time, the 25-year-old ace just couldn't help himself after "The Joker's" latest slip-up.
