Today host Karl Stefanovic has slammed Kiwi sore loser Michael Venus for branding tennis rival Nick Krygios ‘an absolute knob’.
Kyrgios and Thanasi Kokkinakis made it to the final four in the Australian Open men’s doubles after beating sixth-seed Venus and doubles partner Tim Puetz on Tuesday.
Venus later unleashed an extraordinary tirade about Kyrgios’s on-court antics and raucous crowd, labelling their three-set thriller a circus, not a tennis match.
‘His maturity level, you see why he’s never fulfilled his potential and probably never will,’ he said on New Zealand TV. ‘At the end of the day, he’s just an absolute knob!’
Now Stefanovic and Australian tennis Olympian Sam Groth have returned serve with their own brutal takedown of the furious Kiwi.
