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.
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.
