Nick Kyrgios firmly in the Roger Federer camp ahead of Wimbledon final
If you didn’t already know, Nick Kyrgios will be rooting for Roger Federer during the Wimbledon final against Novak Djokovic.
Kyrgios has made no secret of the fact that he is a massive Federer fan, often referring to the 20-time Grand Slam winner as the GOAT (greatest of all time) while Djokovic finds himself at the other end of the spectrum with the Australian making it clear he dislikes the Serb.
In fact he has an ongoing feud with Djokovic after saying the current world No 1 has a “sick obsession with wanting to be liked” and, despite criticism from various corners, has refused to back down.
With Federer and Djokovic due to meet in the 2019 Wimbledon final on Sunday, Kyrgios took to Twitter to make sure the world knows who he is backing.
Federer please win ??
