Tennis bad boy Nick Kyrgios pulls out of French Open after saying tournament ‘sucks’
The controversial 24-year-old – widely known for scandals and his theatrical on-court meltdowns – had been drawn to play against Brit Cameron Norrie in the first round, but will be replaced either by a ‘lucky loser’ or qualifier.
This week the Australian caused a stir on social media by showing his disdain towards Roland Garros, saying that the tennis world needs to “get rid of clay.”
“French Open sucks compared to this place [Wimbledon]. Sucks,” Kyrgios said. “Get rid of the clay man, who likes the clay? It is so, so bad.”
Last week, Kyrgios was disqualified from the Italian Open during his round of 32 match-up with Casper Ruud for hurling a chair onto the court.Also on rt.com Nick Kyrgios bounced from Italian Open after chair-throwing meltdown (VIDEO)
