After a host of stars tested positive for Covid-19 after competing at the tournament – which attracts large crowds and where social distancing is not possible – including Djokovic, his wife Jelena, three other players, three coaches and one player who was pregnant with his wife, the competition was cancelled. Djokovic also released a statement saying apologizing to the tournament “caused harm.”

One of the players who played but tested negative, Alexander Zverev, announced on his social media that, despite the negative test result, he will be self-isolating as a precaution. However, a video that surfaced on social media a few days later appeared to show the German partying in a nightclub in Monte Carlo.

Kyrgios, often the source of controversies in tennis, took to Twitter to criticize Zverev, 23, calling him “selfish” for ignoring social distancing guidelines.

“If you have the courage to put out a tweet, that you have asked your management to write a letter on your behalf, saying that you will be self-isolating for 14 days and apologizing to the public for placing your health they’re in peril, must at least be brave enough to stay inside for 14 days,” Kyrgios said on an Instagram story.

Kyrgios previously called the decision to hold the Adria Tour “a mistake”. Zverev’s management team did not immediately respond to CNN Sport’s request for comment.

‘Don’t like no # congratulations!’

However, former Djokovic coach Becker described Kyrgios as a “rat” on Twitter for pointing out Zverev’s behaviour.

“Don’t like no # congratulations! Anyone who says fellow athletes/women aren’t my friends! Look at yourself in the mirror and think you’re better than us… @NickKyrgios,” Becker speak.
In response, Kyrgios speak: “For goodness sake, Boris, I’m not competing or trying to throw anyone under the bus. It’s a global pandemic and if someone as stupid as Alex did what he did, I’d call. him for that. Simple.”
Becker then doubled the lead, speech: “We are all living in a pandemic called #Covid 19! It’s terrible and it kills many lives…we should protect our family/loved ones and follow the guidelines but still don’t like # Congratulations.”

Kyrgios clearly doesn’t appreciate being called a “rat” by Becker.

“Rat? For holding someone accountable? Strangely thinking it’s champion, I’m just looking for people,” the 25-year-old Australian speak.

“WHEN my family and families all over the world have respectfully done the right thing. And you have a goose waving around, imma say something.”

Then Kyrgios continued call three-time Wimbledon champion a “donut bigger than I thought” and “obviously not the sharpest tool in the shed.”

Kyrgios also criticized the rescheduled US Open, which is currently taking place from August 24 to September 13.

“People who live in America are of course pushing [for] Open to continue. ‘Selfish,’ “he Written on Twitter. “I will have a hazmat suit ready when I go from Australia and then have to quarantine for two weeks when I return.”
