Tomic: Kyrgios faking

Bernard Tomic was heard telling Australian Davis Cup captain Lleyton Hewitt that Nick Kyrgios was faking illness.

Kyrgios was under an injury cloud in the lead up to their important Davis Cup clash against USA in Kooyang this weekend after falling ill.

The Australian eventually pulled out of the event, forcing captain Hewitt to come out of retirement to feature a losing doubles pairing, as the US went on to knockout Australia from the team event.

During the Tomic’s match against John Isner on Sunday, the 23-year-old reportedly said “Twice he has faked it” to Hewitt. Tomic went on to lose by three sets to one.

Kyrgios, who was obviously keeping tabs on events in Melbourne back home in Canberra, was quick to react to reports on twitter.
