Murray Jabs Kyrgios


A hip injury has sidelined Andy Murray since his Wimbledon quarterfinal loss.

Time off tour has not diminished the Scot's stinging return game as Nick Kyrgios learned.

Watch: Laver Cup Goes Back to Black

The three-time Grand Slam champion got creative posting this image of his Head racquet collection, adding the hash tag "50 shades of head."

The post prompted Kyrgios, who is Murray's buddy and sometime practice partner, to observe:

k1ngkyrg1os Don't know how I feel about this post. 

That comment sat up in the social media service box and Murray answered with this resounding winner:

andymurray@k1ngkyrg1os 😂.. Think the bat under my left armpit was the one I used to serve out the match against you at Wimby...would you like it?

See their exchange here:




Kyrgios and fellow Instagram posters acknowledged Murray's winning return.

This isn't the first time the guys have traded playful jabs in their ongoing bromance.

Murray called Kyrgios "box office" during this exchange when the pair were IPTL teammates:



During Hopman Cup, Kyrgios revealed his "hidden bromance" with Murray, who is the only member of the Big 4 the Aussie has yet to defeat.
