’Going to be fireworks’ - Djokovic ahead of Wimbledon final against Kyrgios
Indy

Nick Kyrgios just got annoyed about a fan distracting him during the Wimbledon final, much to the surprise of fans.

The Australian sportsman is taking on Novak Djokovic in the men's singles final but he's losing his cool...

In an argument with umpire Renaud Lichtenstein, he referred to a woman he believed to be drunk and said:

“She’s distracting me during my serve in a Wimbledon final, she’s drunk out of her mind sitting in the first row.

“I know what one it is. It’s the one in the dress who looks like she’s had about 700 drinks.

“She’s talking to me during the points. She’s speaking to me between the points.

“I told you respectfully, she’s talking to me during the point.”

People on Twitter found the exchange hilarious though some thought his manners were bad:

Kyrgios is playing in the Wimbledon final amid allegations of common assault against his ex-girlfriend. Meanwhile, Djokovic started the year by being deported from Australia following a row over his Covid-19 vaccine exemption.

Djokovic is expected to win but at the time of writing it is still all to play for.
