‘Only he knows the reason’ – Nick Kyrgios urged to end bitter feud with Novak Djokovic

Goran Ivanisevic has urged Nick Kyrgios to forget about Novak Djokovic and concentrate on fulfilling his own potential instead.

Ivanisevic, a member of Djokovic’s coaching team, has had a front-seat view of Kyrgios’ disdain for the world number one.

Kyrgios’ commented earlier this year that Djokovic had ‘a sick obsession’ with winning the love of the crowd, something that he described as ‘cringeworthy.’

He has been offered some advice by Ivanisevic, though, who says Djokovic’s demeanour is none of Kyrgios’ business – and he should have huge higher priorities.

“It’s bad because I don’t think Novak did anything wrong to him,” Ivanisevic told the Telegraph.

“He decides to pick on Novak for no reason. You can come on the court and do whatever you want, but you need to respect your opponent.

“He speaks a lot about Novak, only he knows the reason.

“But he should just take care of himself because he should be in the top five, he could win a grand slam.

“He’s never going to win a grand slam with the approach he has now.

“If he could change it that would be great for him and for tennis.”
