Nick Kyrgios involved in another social media feud, this time with Mikhail Kukushkin
Another day, another social media storm involving Nick Kyrgios with the Australian this time getting involved in a spat with fellow professional player Mikhail Kukushkin.
It all started with a harmless Instagram post from the official ATP Tour account with the caption “Underarm serve… Tactic or trouble?”

We don’t think by trouble they meant online trouble, but it certainly led to a heated exchange between Kyrgios and Kukushkin.
World No 45 Kukushkin gave it the thumbs down and then Kyrgios decided to chip in and his reply was very good, we have to admit, as he told the Kazakh player “don’t worry dude, I didn’t need to use it when I was chopping you up in Dubai [in 2016]”.
Kukushkin, though, wasn’t impressed and replied “that was my answer regarding underarm serve, not to you. No need to be rude to other people with no reason.”
And of course Kyrgios was not going to let it end there as he hit back with “not sure reminding you of a tennis match is rude, I was just giving you my opinion of our match and the use of the underarm serve”.
We are sure this won’t be the last social media storm that Kyrgios will be involved.
