Nick Kyrgios is loved by many, maybe hated by more, but is undoubtedly one of the most entertaining athletes in all of sports. Kyrgios beating up on his rival at Indian Wells and talking all sorts of trash afterward is just the latest example to back up that notion.

Kyrgios and Norway’s Casper Ruud haven’t been friends for quite some time now. It all started when Kyrgios called Ruud out on Twitter for not being entertaining back in 2019.

The two played one another in October of 2019, a match that saw Kyrgios get disqualified for an outburst. Ruud’s celebration was a bit over the top, and Kyrgios made sure to call him out on Twitter after the fact.

The tennis gods blessed everyone with a Round of 32 matchup between Kyrgios and Ruud at Indian Wells. Kyrgios showed up to play, which isn’t always the case, and immediately talked trash right after beating Ruud 6-4, 6-4.

The celebration after Kyrgios earned the win was intense as he let out an emphatic “let’s f–king go.”

Then, while getting ready to leave the court, Kyrgios looked directly into the camera delivering a message to Ruud.

Some won’t like seeing and hearing Kyrgios talk trash, especially after a win only in the Round of 32, but that’s what makes Kyrgios, Kyrgios.
