Djordje Djokovic was grateful to Nick Kyrgios for coming out and publicly showing support to his brother Novak.
After Djokovic was detained and placed in an immigration hotel, Kyrgios said it just wasn’t right.
“Kyrgios showed that he is a human being before everything, he speaks his mind whether he loves you or not,” Djordje said, per Sasa Ozmo.
Also, Djordje was surprised that the ATP didn’t say anything regarding the whole Djokovic situation.
“It’s odd that the ATP didn’t say anything, Novak is part of the ATP, public support is important. They’re a big organization, I guess that was the legal advice (they received), to stay in the background, which they shouldn’t have.” Djordje said.
The comments Kyrgios made about the Djokovic situation
“I just want it to end. I’m feeling for him now. It’s not really humane, is it, what’s going on?” Kyrgios told reporters.
“If this was a normal person, they wouldn’t have to deal with this media side bulls–t.
“His life is probably hard enough as it is. I know what that’s like. I just hope it gets sorted soon.
“I don’t know if we’re on talking terms. But that’s the funny thing about me and Novak. We actually used to be friends. We used to practice at events and, again, the media has divided us, as well.
“They’ve just blown some of it out of proportion, and now it’s almost made it 30 times worse, where it was really not that bad.
“I remember Novak was one of the only actual players when I was young that came towards me and said if you ever need anything, feel free to reach out, and I’ll be open to help.
“But I feel like he’s helped us, as well. During the bushfires he was supportive, he was helping us out. We’re so quick to forget.”
