- Nick Kyrgios squashed his beef with Drake
- The two men fell out over a comment made in 2014.
- Canadian rapper Drake says Kyrgios is his favorite player
Nick Kyrgios joked “sometimes my life isn’t real” after rapper Drake slid into his DMs to tell him he was “hurt” by comments made by the tennis superstar almost years ago 10 years.
But the Australian settled his issues with the Canadian sensation after Drake admitted he was his “favorite tennis player”.
The feud between the two men dates back to 2014, when a young Kyrgios blamed his poor third-round performance at Wimbledon, in which he beat Czech Jirí Veselý, on Drake’s music.
“I came out really flat, so I hope I don’t listen to this again!” It was actually Drake. He didn’t do the job for me,” Kyrgios said after the match.
Drake responded to the then 19-year-old tennis star’s comments, saying he wanted to “tear her down” after her disrespectful remarks.

Drake said he was “hurt” by Kyrgios’ comments on his music almost a decade ago.
“I also want to meet this guy who says he lost because he listened to my music,” the rapper said. “I also want to meet this guy, look him in the eye and see exactly who he is as a man, evaluate him and then cut him into pieces.”
‘Nick whatever his name is – because he didn’t win, that’s how he will be remembered: ‘Nick whatever his name’.’
Kyrgios then beat Rafael Nadal in a breakthrough performance in which he became one of the most controversial figures in tennis.
And now the Canberra-born star has revealed that Drake recently contacted him directly to regret the ill will between them, admitting that Kyrgios was his favorite tennis player.
“When you said I was trash, it hurt my feelings because you really are my favorite player,” he wrote.
Kyrgios replied: ‘Haha, I didn’t say you were trash. I love your music bro…I hope you’re doing well.’
Drake then wished Kyrgios well, with the Australian sidelined with another injury.
“We will connect soon,” he said. “Get well soon, buddy. »
