Nick Kyrgios’ ex-girlfriend insists there is no bad blood between the couple after she was accused of calling him a ‘bad person’ just three days ago.
Anna Kalinskaya posted a cryptic Instagram post that read, ‘You’re not a bad boy, you’re just a bad person’ after the bitter split last week.
Fans assumed the post, which was later removed, was directed to Kyrgios, but the 21-year-old Sunday insisted the post had been misinterpreted.
“He didn’t do anything. He is a good person and I did not want to comment on him. I don’t know why people think it’s about him. He’s a great player and a nice person, ”the world number 95 told Confidential.

After the original Instagram post, Kalinskaya confirmed that she and Kyrgios had split up after a year of dating.
‘We broke up. We’re not friends, ”she said. “I understand you’re his friends and it’s cool, but I’m not going to talk about him.
“Also respect me.”
The pair were spotted at a street stall in Acapulco, Mexico in February, while Kyrogios planted a kiss on her forehead.
Kyrgios, 25, stayed in Canberra during the coronavirus crisis while she was in Miami.
Last week, she posted a photo of herself playing tennis with another cryptic caption, writing, “ Whatever you’re going through, don’t let anyone break you.
“Be strong, don’t lose yourself, be yourself. You deserve the best.’
The romance was first rumored in August last year, after Kyrgios was spotted encouraging the Russian at the 2019 Citi Open in Washington.

Kyrgios dated to about two years until 2017 with Croatian-Australian tennis star Ajla Tomljanović.
