Nick Kyrgios made a joke in front of Prince George, and everyone else did the same.


Although Nick Kyrgios, the controversial and outspoken tennis player, lost the Men’s Wimbledon Final to Novak Djokovic on Sunday, it was his outburst before Prince George, 8 years old that made everyone talk.

The contest saw the Australian engage in numerous arguments with almost everyone on the centre court, including one woman who he claimed: “looks like she has had about 700 drinks.”

As he tried unsuccessfully to overcome the seemingly insurmountable Serbian who was claiming his seventh Wimbledon title, the 27-year-old lost many f-bombs.

Although Kyrgios’s exaggerated behavior may have surprised some, many others were not there to see John McEnroe doing the same thing in 1908. Many were quick to laugh at the Aussie’s language, particularly in the quiet environment of Wimbledon.

Twitter began to make jokes about George’s possible speech after he returned home because of his bad language. This is something we hope never happens.

Some people have also suggested George wasn’t impressed by Kyrgios. But, we’ll let the jury be out.

His antics on and off court have made Kyrgios a controversial figure in the last two weeks. He was open to the criticisms and heated press conference. However, others felt that he did not deserve to be in the final because Rafael Nadal, his semifinal opponent, could not compete because of injury.
