Nick Kyrgios

Tennis legend Boris Becker and Australian enfant terrible Nick Kyrgios got into a bitter battle on Twitter on Tuesday.

In a serve and volley of words exchanged between the duo, Becker first provoked Kyrgios for criticising Alexander Zverev after a video appeared to show the German dancing at a crowded club on Sunday despite the world No 7 pledging last week he would be self-isolating.

'Don't like no #rats! Anybody telling off fellow sportsman/woman is no friend of mine! Look yourself in the mirror and think your better than us...' Becker tweeted, tagging Kyrgios in his tweet.

Not one to ever take things lying down, Krygios hit back. There was a back and forth until the Aussie forced the German great into submission.

 

Here's how things unfolded...>
