Oz star Kyrgios embroiled in feud with rapper Drake

Melbourne: Rising Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios has become embroiled in a feud with rapper Drake.

According to news.com.au, Kyrgios had blamed Drake for nearly losing at Wimbledon earlier than his semi-final exit.

Kyrgios listens to music before matches, and chose to listen to Drake before a 3-6 6-3 7-5 6-2 victory against Jiri Vesily in the third round.

Drake wasn`t happy with the criticism and hit back at the 19-year-old, saying no one will ever remember Kyrgios` name.

Drake, who got his facts slightly wrong, said that he would like to look Krygios in the eye and size him up, and then chop him right down.

Kyrgios responded on Twitter this morning, saying he was still a fan of Drake.
