Kyrgios’ remarks came after Djokovic was asked about the possibility of remaining unbeaten through the entire 2020 season.

Hell of a tennis player. May go unbeaten in 2020, can’t take that away from him. Unfortunately when he was supposed to show some leadership and humility he went missing. Majority would say he has taken an L regardless,” Kyrgios wrote on his Twitter page.

In June, Djokovic organized an exhibition tennis tour in Serbia and Croatia which resulted in several positive Covid-19 tests among the participants, including the Serbian tennis star himself.

Djokovic, Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Coric and Viktor Troicki all tested positive, raising the issue of neglecting precautionary safety measures during the Adria Tour.The tennis star later apologized stressing that the tournament was organized with best intentions, however, it didn’t save him from the backlash with Kyrgios being among his most vocal critics.

Djokovic who will play at Flushing Meadows next week is widely considered the main favorite to clinch the US Open title, after his main rivals Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer withdrew from the tournament.
