Nick Kyrgios hits with Andy Murray, says ‘French Open sucks’ compared to Wimbledon
If it was up to Nick Kyrgios then the clay-court season would be scrapped and he would play at Wimbledon for an extended period.
The controversial Australian was invited to have a hit with Andy Murray at SW19 and he made no secret of the fact that he would rather play on grass than clay.
In an Instagram Live video, he told his followers: “I’m hitting with Andy Murray today at 12. Should be pretty fun.
“I think this is the best tournament in the world, look at this perfect green surface.
“Get rid of the clay, man. Who likes the clay it is so bad, it’s so bad.
“Muzza just sent me voice note saying make sure you turn up with your rackets. Sir Andy Murray now.
“The fact that I am here right now and I have to go to Paris in a couple of days…
“The French Open sucks compared to this place. Sucks. Absolute sucks.”
