The Australian has kept a rivalry with the Spaniard since 2020, when he asserted that without clay courts, the Asturian tennis player would not have come close to the top 50 in the world rankings.
Pablo Carreño has been living in a cloud since last Sunday he was declared the Canadian Masters Champion, the first 1000 Masters of his career. However, it has been Australian Nick Kyrgios Who spoiled the victory of the Spaniards in North America. “Nothing, I’m fine, we made a laughable face,” the tennis player confirmed on his social networks after several users pulled the newspaper library and dusted off the rivalry the two players had maintained since 2020.

That year, Carreño reached the semi-finals of the US Open And the Australian, he used the internet again to mess with the Spaniard. Kyrgios wrote at the time: “If clay hadn’t been there, this guy wouldn’t have gotten anywhere near the top 50.” Interestingly enough, the victory in Montreal was fast paced, not on the cobbles. Additionally, Kyrgios has never won the Master 1,000, though the Australian has defeated the Spaniard in the three encounters between the two (one on hardcourt, one on hardcourt and one on grass).
Attacks continue Kyrgios It comes back the moment both athletes are in a sweet phase. While Carreno just racked up what is certainly the greatest victory of his career, Kyrgios reached his first Grand Slam final in July, at Wimbledon and against Novak Djokovic, despite the fact that the Serb took the final win to add an impressive 21 titles to his career. . Kyrgios, in Canada, was eliminated in the quarter-finals.
