It's pretty brutal. Wawrinka has recently gone through a divorce earlier this year, and it is believed he is dating Croatian player Donna Vekic. Kyrgios made the remark when he was still a set down.

Following the match, Wawrinka blasted Kyrgios on Twitter.

So disappointing to see a fellow athlete and colleague be so disrespectful in a way I could never even imagine.


What was said I wouldn't say to my worst enemy. To stop so low is not only unacceptable but also beyond belief.

There is no need for this kind of behaviour on or off the court and I hope the governing body of this sport does not stand...

... for this and stands up for the integrity of this sport that we have worked so hard to build.

Kyrgios later apologized for the comment, calling it "unacceptable on many levels."
