Tomic takes aim at Kyrgios ahead of Kooyong


//

Maligned Australian tennis star Bernard Tomic has bizarrely taken aim at countryman Nick Kyrgios ahead of their highly anticipated encounter at the Kooyong Classic on Wednesday.

Almost three years after he accused Kyrgios of faking illness to miss a crucial Davis Cup tie against the United States, Tomic has resumed his stance toward the former Australian no.1 on the eve of their highly anticipated clash.

Tomic took aim at Kyrgios’ game, questioning whether it would provide him with adequate match practice ahead of the Australian Open.

"Am I doing that [getting proper match practice] against Nick, who only just serves? It's tough to do," Tomic told The Sydney Morning Herald.

"Hopefully he takes it seriously."

Tomic’s comments come a day after Kyrgios declared his excitement over playing his “mate” and getting some “perfect” preparation under his belt ahead of the first grand slam of 2019.

"I'm looking forward to seeing him and catching up with him and playing against him," Kyrgios said following his Fast4 tie-break win over Rafael Nadal on Monday night.

"We're fine. I don't have any bad blood with him at all. It's another chance to get some preparation before the Oz Open.

"Obviously I was pretty excited when I got drawn against him - we're good mates so to get out there, I know what he's going to bring, it's going to be fun.

"It's going to be laid back so, yeah, it's perfect preparation for me."

"Of course. There's no doubt both of us want to win," Kyrgios said.

"But, again, we both know it's just preparation and we've got bigger fish to fry in a couple of days.

"So I'm going to go out there, just fine-tune my game, serve, look to be aggressive on my first ball and I'm sure he's going to look to get out there and want to get some match practice."

Tomic by contrast was apathetic ahead of the fixture on Tuesday, stating “he couldn’t care less” about the result.

"He's needing it more than anything, because he's struggling a little bit mentally right now," said Tomic.

"Maybe one year we'll play seriously."
