Drake Snaps Back at Nick Kyrgios’ for Blame on Poor Wimbledon Game
When Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios blamed his near-loss to Czech Republic's Jirí Veselý at Wimbledon on Drake, the '0 to 100' rapper didn't take the low blow sitting down and threw down a strong comeback.
"Today was a bit of rap, actually," Kyrgious told reporters at Wimbledon regarding his slow start in the match. "I came out really flat, so hopefully I won't listen to that again. It was actually Drake. Yeah. Didn't do the job for me."
Drake snapped back during a press call this week. "I also want to meet this guy that says that he lost because he listened to my music," he said. "I also want to meet that guy and look him in the eye and see exactly who he is as a man and size him up and then chop him right down. Nick whatever-his-name-is -- 'cause he didn’t win, so that’s how he’s going to be remembered: 'Nick whatever-his-name-is.'”
While we give the 'Views From the 6' creator props for standing his ground, he did get one thing wrong. Kyrgios did win the match as well as one against tennis big shot Rafael Nadal before being knocked out in the quarterfinals. A week-and-half after the mini feud, the 19-year-old tennis prodigy tweeted "Own it- Drake," referring to the track off Drake's 'Nothing Was the Same.'
Kyrgios also cleared the air about his comments, stating he's actually a Drizzy fan and wasn't playing the blame game.
