Two of the most controversial tennis players in the game today have, perhaps unsurprisingly, been involved in a bizarre blink-and-you’ll-miss-it contentious moment during an exhibition match at the Kooyong Classic.
The duo in question are of course Australian compatriots Bernard Tomic and Nick Kyrgios, with the former leaving his fellow countryman absolutely shell shocked after conjuring up one of the most outrageous serves you’ll ever see.
Tomic, on match point, prepared to unleash a serve in the standard overhead manner, only to completely deceive his opponent by cheekily flicked the ball between his legs, simultaneously distracting Kyrgios by rapidly bouncing another ball.
The ball slowly went over the net and into the opposite service box, but a perplexed Kyrgios was left rooted to the spot in bewilderment, as did those present in the crowd, while the umpire called “Game, set, and match” in a 6-3 6-4 victory for Tomic.
Say what? If you have no idea what we’re on about, take a good few watches of the attached video - our heads are still in a spin!
However, while the serve was actually illegal - he hit the ball on the bounce - the point stood.
In the aftermath Kyrgios, no stranger to controversy himself, told reporters:
"I don't think there has ever been a player like BT.
"He won a title last year and it looks like he is carrying a bit of momentum which is good to see.
"He can make a run at the Australian Open, for sure."
