I couldn't even move, I still had a hangover … ». From the memories of the protagonist, the clash could have been one of the quarterfinals of the Cincinnatti Masters 1000.
«You, me and some of our friends hit him hard. You hit him hard. Then I remember being in the hotel room, I had a full hangover. I turned on the television and there you were facing Nadal on the hard court, I couldn't believe it », remembered the humorist, who shared that spree with the tennis player.
«I just went out and said:‘ Look, I'm going to play big. I really can't move, I know I can barely move because I still have a hangover . So I'm going to have to serve in a big way and play aggressively. ’ And the stars aligned that night, that simple, really ", Kyrgios recalled.
