Andy may be sidelined with injury, but that hasn’t stopped him from getting in the thick of it on social media issuing a hilarious response to a video posted by Aussie Nick Kyrgios.
Following Kyrgios’ round of 16 win over Ivo Karlovic, the world no.23 posted a video of him celebrating a point on Instagram and the Brit just couldn’t help himself.
With Kyrgios caught partying after an early Wimbledon exit, Murray wasn’t going to let the golden opportunity for some banter pass him by, commenting: “For someone who parties so much I’d expect some better moves.”
Credit to Kyrgios though who took it all in his stride by replying: “I have no idea what you are talking about…straight from the water bottle..”
Despite Murray’s classic banter, Kyrgios did indeed keep it rolling in Cincinnati after defeating No.1 seed & soon to be world no.1 Rafael Nadal.
Showcasing everything brilliant and exciting about his mercurial style, Kyrgios gets through to the second Masters semi of his career, against David Ferrer, after stunning Spanish legend Nadal with an exhibition of big serving and hitting. It was the Aussie’s 100th victory on the ATP Tour and a sure sign he is back to form.
His serve proved unplayable in the first, and his touch looked just as deft as he guided a delicate backhand return of serve past Nadal late on.
Though losing to the Aussie, Nadal will still overtake Murray as world no.1 prior to the US Open.
