Nick Kyrgios may have had a controversial last week, but he doesn’t mind embroiling himself in another one, it seems.

The volatile Australian star took to his official Instagram account to go on a rant about the French Open, saying the premier clay-court event “absolutely sucks” when compared to Wimbledon.

Kyrgios is currently practicing on the grass courts of Wimbledon’s All England Club, bizzarely just a week ahead of playing on Parisian clay.

“The fact that I’m here right now and then I have to go to Paris in a couple of days is like… the French Open just sucks compared to this place,” the 24-year-old said.

“It sucks. It absolutely sucks.

“Strawberries cream and a cheeky stop by the last 8 club before Paris.”

Just last week, Kyrgios was at the centre of controversy after labelling Novak Djokovic ‘cringeworthy’, Rafael Nadal ‘super-salty’ and Toni Nadal an ‘idiot’ during an incredible podcast.

Further, he was disqualified from the just-concluded Italian Open for throwing a chair on to the court.
