Donna Vekic, the woman unwittingly involved in the infamous Nick Kyrgios controversy that rocked the tennis world last week, has finally broken her silence concerning the matter.

“It’s not easy but I’m trying to focus on tennis and my next match,” the 19-year-old Vekic was quoted as saying by The Province.

“I haven’t spoken to Kyrgios. But it’s a very disappointing thing to be happening in our sport,” she continued. “I hope it won’t happen again because it’s not a very good image for our sport.”

Kyrgios had faced heavy criticism for sledging Stanislas Wawrinka on the tour last week, where he remarked: “(Australian tennis player, Thanasi) Kokkinakis banged your girlfriend. Sorry to tell you mate,” presumably referring to Wawrinka’s link-up with Vekic.

Wawrinka and Vekic have been allegedly dating each other since some time, although the duo have not publicly announced their relationship.
