Nick Kyrgios has had himself quite the month. First he shocks the tennis world by beating No. 1 Rafael Nadal in his Wimbledon debut to advance to the quarterfinals, and now it seems he's pissed off Drake.
In the third round at Wimbledon, the 19-year-old needed four sets to beat fellow ATP youngster Jiri Vesely and blamed his slow start -- he lost the first set -- on the fact that he walked out on court listening to Drake's mellow jams.
"I came out really flat, so hopefully I won’t listen to that again," Kyrgios said. "It was actually Drake. Didn’t do the job for me."
As reported by Stereogum, Drake wasn't too happy about being dissed by a teenage tennis player from Australia.
"I also want to meet this guy that says that he lost because he listened to my music," Drake said, getting a few of his facts wrong. "I also want to meet that guy and look him in the eye and see exactly who he is as a man and size him up and then chop him right down. Nick whatever-his-name-is — ’cause he didn’t win, so that’s how he’s going to be remembered: 'Nick whatever-his-name-is.'”
Drake: Good rapper. Bad fact-checker. Kyrgios switched up his playlist and beat Nadal in his next match.
Before we start calling this "beef" let's be clear: Kyrgios meant no harm.
Let's be clear. I like @Drake - love his music, just said I was a little flat, ended up winning that match. No blame game here.— Nicholas Kyrgios (@NickKyrgios) July 14, 2014
