Vine: 'Kokkinakis Banged Your Girlfriend' Aussie Tennis Player Takes Trash-Talking To New Level

Until Tiernan McCann came along last weekend, the GAA's number one issue this summer was trash-talking.

Verbal abuse during games is unlikely to have hit the scale of what occurred during a match between Nick Kyrgios (the 'bad boy' of tennis) and Stan Wawrinka in Montreal on Wednesday night.

Approaching the net, Kyrgios told Wawrinka:

Kokkinakis banged your girlfriend. Sorry to tell you that mate.

The Kokkinakis to whom Kyrgios is referring is his fellow Australian tennis player Thanasi Kokkinakis and Wawrinka's girlfriend is thought to be 19-year-old Croatian player Donna Vekić.


Kyrgios won the match after Wawrinka was forced to retire 4-0 down in the third set with the match tied at one set each.


In the post-match interview, the Australian was asked about his comments and told Canadian TV that the Swiss player was 'getting a bit lippy, I just said it'.

In slight mitigating circumstances, Wawrinka did shout at Kyrgios during the match and also tried to hit him in the head with a ball.

Those reasons were not enough for Wawrinka's coach however. Magnus Norman tweeted that he hopes Kyrgios has some people around him that will 'teach him a thing or two about life'.
