Why Kyrgios cannot “take any slack” from “the strange cat”?

On Sunday, the Serb said he has no respect for the Aussie off the court. World No 47 got offended with this comment. The Aussie replied he cannot understand Djokovic’s reason and called him a “strange cat”.

Kyrgios would be fine if No 1 was against his behavior on the court. Because of his ethics in the court. But off the court, he never did something disrespectful. He even mentions the charitable work he did during the coronavirus pandemic. Therefore, he cannot understand the Serbs’ criticism of him.

Kyrgios accepted his admiration for the Serb’s game on the court. However, he found Djokovic guilty for his actions during the coronavirus pandemic. Djokovic arranged a public gathering last year. The gathering resulted in many players testing positive for the COVID-19.

Kyrgios said, “It actually would make complete sense to me if he was like, ‘Look, I don’t respect the guy on the court.’ Because I understand if he doesn’t agree with some of my antics on the court that I have done in the past.

“He’s a very strange cat, Novak is. Heck of a tennis player, but unfortunately someone that’s partying with his shirt off during a global pandemic, I don’t know if I can take any slack from that man. That’s as bad as it gets for me.”
