‘It was funny,’ says Rafael Nadal as he sees the funny side of Nick Kyrgios’ impersonation of him
Rafael Nadal has played down Nick Kyrgios’ impersonation of him, saying “he doesn’t care” before adding “it was funny”.
The world No 1 and Kyrgios have never been close friends on or off court, but things went further south last year as the latter took several swipes at the Spaniard.
He called the 19-time Grand Slam winner “super salty” during an interview and the two traded several barbs during the course of the year.
The Australian was at it again during his second-round match at Melbourne Park on Thursday as he mimicked Nadal’s serve, and his opponent Gilles Simon from France also got in on the act.

They seem pretty spot on!

Nadal and Kyrgios could meet in the fourth round and the Spaniard was asked about the impersonation.
“I really don’t care. I’m here to play tennis,” he said. “I don’t care at all. If was funny, good. That’s it.”
