Kyrgios: French Open sucks compared to Wimbledon

Cape Town - It's safe to say that 'See you again - maybe': Kyrgios disqualified in Rome

The hot-headed Australian was invited to have a hit with Andy Murray at SW19 and he made no secret of the fact that he would rather play on grass than clay.

In an video, he told his followers: "I'm hitting with Andy Murray today at 12. Should be pretty fun.

"I think this is the best tournament in the world, look at this perfect green surface.

"Get rid of the clay, man. Who likes the clay it is so bad, it's so bad," he said.

"Muzza just sent me voice note saying make sure you turn up with your rackets. Sir Andy Murray now.

"The fact that I am here right now and I have to go to Paris in a couple of days...

"The French Open sucks compared to this place. Sucks. Absolute sucks."

While Kyrgios has reached the quarter-finals of both the Australian Open and Wimbledon in the past, he has never made it past the third round at Roland Garros, or won any ATP tournament on clay, which may go some ways towards explaining his disdain for the surface.
