Kyrgios Calls Out Djokovic's Dad

Srdjan Djokovic blames Grigor Dimitrov for bringing the coronavirus to the Adria Tour.

Nick Kyrgios isn't having it.

Kyrgios: Epitome of Stupidity

Srdjan Djokovic, Novak Djokovic's father, claims Dimitrov infected the Tour—a charge Dimitrov's agent denies.

"How did the infection come about? Probably because Dimitrov came sick, who knows where,” Srdjan Djokovic told Croatian television network RTL. “He was not tested in Zadar, but somewhere else. I don’t think that’s right.

"I think it is not correct that the test was not done here, but somewhere else...

"[He has caused] great harm to you in Croatia, to us as a family and to Serbia. Nobody is well, not even my son."

Novak Djokovic, Borna Coric, Dimitrov and Viktor Troicki, who all played the Adria Tour, have all tested positive for coronavirus and are self-isolating.

In an Instagram post, Kyrgios shot down Djokovic senior's attempt to make Dimitrov the fall guy posting this response.

"Nah Bruh don't push the blame," Kyrgios posted above a photo of his nemesis, Novak Djokovic, and Srdjan Djokovic together.

The comment comes after Kyrgios ripped the "boneheaded decision" to host the Adria Tour during this coronavirus pandemic.

Dimitrov's agent, Georgi Stoimenov, pushed back against the elder Djokovic's claim countering it is the Adria Tour organizers, not the players, who bear the responsibility for the COVID-19 spread on the tour.

"Grigor landed directly in Belgrade after three months of isolation,” Dimitrov’s agent said in a statement. “Neither in Belgrade nor in Zadar, Croatia was he required to pass a test for the coronavirus. The event organizers are responsible for the running of a safe event and for creating the rules they deem necessary to follow.

“Grigor strictly respected and followed all of the rules imposed by the organizers of both the tournament and those regulations required by the borders of Bulgaria, Croatia and Serbia. "
