“I’m good in the locker room. I’ve got many friends, just to let you know. I’m actually one of the most liked. I’m set. He’s not liked. Let’s just put that there.” And the hits kept on coming as Kyrgios branded Tsitsipas “soft”.

I didn’t think I was aggressive towards him. I wasn’t hitting balls at his face. I don’t know. I don’t know what the big — I didn’t feel like there was any anger. I had no anger towards Stef today on the match. I don’t know where it’s coming from, to be honest.”
