Nick Kyrgios is never shy of getting into controversies. The 20-year-old Australian tennis player ensures that he is always into the limelight. But, he galloped a step further while sledging his on-court opponent in Montreal this week.

It happened so during his second-round encounter with Switzerland’s World No. 5 Stanislas Wawrinka at the Montreal Masters, when Kyrgios was caught passing lewd comments by the microphones on the court.

Dragging fellow Australian tennis player Thanasi Kokkinakis into the matter, a heated Kyrgios said” “Kokkinakis banged your girlfriend. Sorry to tell you that mate.” Wawrinka, who recently broke up with his wife Ilhan Vuilloud, is rumored to be dating 19-year-old Croat Donna Vekic.

Kyrgios, however, took it to social media platform Facebook to make an apology for his comments. He mentioned that the remarks were “made in the heat of the moment” and that he is well aware of the fact that they were “unacceptable on many levels”.
