Kyrgios: Epitome of Stupidity

Nick Kyrgios offered prayers and putdowns for players on Novak Djokovic's Adria Tour.

World No. 1 Djokovic announced he and his wife, Jelena, both tested positive for COVID-19 today.

Djokovic joins fellow Adria Tour players Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Coric and Viktor Troicki in testing positive for coronavirus.

High-fives and hugs were a staple of the Djokovic-led Adria Tour, a charity exhibition tour that launched in Djokovic's hometown of Belgrade without social distancing and safety protocols other sports leagues have proposed in this coronavirus era.

Kyrgios, who slammed the Adria Tour as a "boneheaded decision", sent his prayers and some jabs to some stars on the tour.

Retweeting video of Djokovic, Dimitrov, Alexander Zverev and others dancing closely in a Belgrade club, Kyrgios called the behavior the epitome of stupidity.

"Prayers up to all the players that have contracted Covid - 19," Kyrgios posted. "Don’t @ me for anything I’ve done that has been ‘irresponsible’ or classified as ‘stupidity’ - this takes the cake."
