Stan Wawrinka: No Nick Kyrgios Didn’t Apologize, I Prefer Not To Talk About Him [Video]

Following a tough 3-set win over Borna Coric earlier today in Cincinnati, 2-time Grand Slam champion was interview on court by Sky Sports, and of course the topic of Nick Kyrgios came up.

The 20-year-old Aussie offered an apology for stating that his countryman Thanasi Kokkinakis slept with Stan’s girlfriend, Donna Vekic.

But Wawrinka didn’t consider it an apology, and he really doesn’t want to talk about Kyrgios.

“I’m trying to put it away,” Wawrinka said of the whole incident.

“He didn’t apologize, so no. I prefer not to talk about him.”

Later in press, Wawrinka elaborated on the interview. “Not the way that you want to say it. Not the way that you want to say it,” Wawrinka told the Enquirer. “He didn’t really apologize to the people… he should. That’s it. That simple.”

Also today, Vekic made her first remarks on the “sledge”.

“It’s not easy but I’m trying to focus on tennis and my next match,” the 19-year-old Vekic said. “I haven’t spoken to Kyrgios. But it’s a very disappointing thing to be happening in our sport and I hope it won’t happen again because it’s not a very good image for our sport.”

After his win over Coric, tomorrow Wawrinka will player a much taller, older Croat, Ivo Karlovic.

Charlie Says:

I hate the word “sledge” so much right now.

Okiegal Says:

Call it what it is….POOR SPORTSMANSHIP!!

Margot Says:


Eric Says:

Seriously… I mean… I know tennis is kind of buttoned up and everything, but how is this the biggest ATP scandal in years?

jane Says:

agree margot!! someone should sing that song from “frozen” to stan.

Purcell Says:

Buckland should clear off to The Daily Mail. I wish Stan had put a stop to his impertinence sooner, then we could have heard more about the actual flow and progress of the match. Thank goodness that back in the studio Petchey countered with great feeling for the sport and a reminder that we should all work towards thoughtfullness and respect for each other.

Gypsy Gal Says:

Stan says he doesnt want to talk about this,he just wants to concentrate on playing his tennis,he took the high road,and rightly so,time to let sleeping dogs lie…..

FedExpress Says:

i feel more sorry for alexia than i do for donna tbh. a child who gets abandoned by his father is more tragic than being “banged”.

calmdownplease Says:

Oh dear!
Such emotional agony!
Obviously Stanikins thought Donna was a virgin of the purest kind before meeting him. It might even have been in the contract or something…..
Poor thing

Margot Says:

Am begining to think Mirka was right.

calmdownplease Says:

mmm Well, If you can put a cream cake down in front of any difficult situation
I’m confident Mirka will no doubt find a solution to it ;-)
I still thought it was a bit rich of Fedster, in the incident you bring up, to go for NickyK recently. When, as you say, his own `lovely` wife (in between attacking an Industrial sized bag of crisps, no doubt) was mentally assaulting sweet Wawa to distraction!
Horses for courses you know..
Or Nags as the case may be in this instance….
But for gawd sakes, will someone PLEASE provide Stan with a `safe place` ASAP!!!

DanyT Says:

I see Wawrinka in the finals!!!
Count on it!!!!!!!!!
