Enraged Nick Kyrgios launches FILTHY outburst after Ash Barty beat him to take Australian game’s highest individual honor: ‘I get no respect at all’

  • Nick Kyrgios has unleashed another foul-mouthed diatribe on social media
  • He has accused Tennis Australia of showing him “no respect at all” for the award
  • It’s because now-retired superstar Ash Barty won the John Newcombe Medal
  • Kyrgios was nasty at the decision, though he insisted he doesn’t care

An irate Nick Kyrgios has taken to social media to vent about ‘no respect at all’ after the controversial star was overlooked for the John Newcombe medal in favor of Ash Barty.

Kyrgios shared an image comparing the two players’ performances in 2022 on his Instagram story, with the shot roughly captioned, “LOL. No respect at all. I do not give a hoot.

He followed that up by sharing a post from the ATP Tour stating that he and his best friend Thanasi Kokkinakis had been voted the “Fans’ Favorite,” simply writing “Of course, lol.”

It’s just the last few years of foul-mouthed tirades from Kyrgios that often seem delusional at best.

Retired superstar Ash Barty was announced as the winner of the John Newcombe Medal in a glitzy ceremony at Melbourne's Crown Casino on Monday night - a decision Kyrgios clearly isn't happy about

In this case, one of the stats he pointed out about why he should have won Barty is blatantly obvious.

The image, from tennis fan site Sportskeeda, showed Barty with three titles and Kyrgios with four (including both doubles and singles), and curiously said that both had won a Grand Slam each.

Except that Kyrgios, despite an impressive mammoth cutthroat run in a draw at Wimbledon that saw him miss several key players, didn’t actually win a Slam.

There was a very small asterisk next to the message and in the corner of the image was *one last one – a decidedly insincere piece of evidence to accuse Tennis Australia of ‘disrespect’.

More to come…
