Nick Kyrgios was the most talked about Australian athlete when Shane Warne sent him a letter. The tennis star never read it.

Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios has defended his actions of eating sushi while answering questions from the Media during a press conference at Wimbledon 2022. The tennis player copped criticism from the media as well as Piers Morgan after he was eating sushi during a media press conference. Mr Morgan criticised the player for eating sushi during a media conference saying “Roger Federer would never do that because he’s too classy and he would have too much respect for the journalist, so you’re not going to get a pass on it” “I’m not Roger Federer, you can’t expect everyone to be Roger Federer,” Mr Kyrgios told Piers Morgan. “I don’t have the luxury of having 13 people to tie my shoelaces like him.”

Nick Kyrgios was the most talked about Australian athlete when Shane Warne sent him a letter. The tennis star never read it.

The former Wimbledon finalist on Saturday (AEDT) opened up in a revealing sit-down with Piers Morgan and has been widely praised for comments he made about the mental health issues athletes face.

He also spoke candidly about the racism himself and his family have experienced in Australia since he rocketed to fame.

Morgan also asked Kyrgios a difficult question about the infamous scandals that plagued his earlier years on the ATP Tour — headlined by his ugly remark about Stanislas Wawrinka’s former girlfriend Donna Vekic. He was in the same year suspended for 16 weeks by the ATP Tour after a string of behavioural issues.

Morgan asked Kyrgios about an open letter Warne posted on Facebook at the time where the cricket icon told him to “grow up”.

In a post liked more than 3000 times, Warne suggested Kyrgios should have been banned for 12 months if he’d continued to disrespect the sport.

“Nick, grow up, you’ve got an unbelievable talent, be the best tennis player you can, be silly, have fun, but just don’t be stupid,” Warne wrote.

“That might be the pot calling the kettle black, because I’ve done some stupid things, but here’s the thing, I’m nearly 48 years of age and I’ve learnt from my mistakes.

“I’ve been there and I’ve done that, and I actually think in a funny sort of way I could probably help Nick Kyrgios a lot.”
