Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios has not so subtly thrown his support behind Roger Federer ahead of the highly anticipated men’s Wimbledon final and in doing so spectacularly spurned his opponent Novak Djokovic in trademark fashion.

Kyrgios made no secret of his feelings toward Djokovic eariler this year when he launched a stunning spray at the Serb during an interview with New York Times tennis writer Ben Rothernberg on his 'No Challenges Remaining' podcast.

In that explosive interview Kyrgios claimed that Djokovic "has a sick obsession with wanting to be liked", blasted his "cringeworthy" post-match celebrations and said that the Serb would never surpass Roger Federer as the greatest player in tennis history, despite predicting that he would win more Grand Slams than the Swiss icon (who has 20 majors).

INDIAN WELLS, Calif. — Back on the march as the best player in men’s tennis, Novak Djokovic stumbled in the desert sunlight on Tuesday on his favorite surface. Djokovic flubbed some forehands and returns he normally makes in his third-round match at the BNP Paribas Open and cracked a

“I just feel like he has a sick obsession with wanting to be liked. He just wants to be like Roger. For me personally - I don’t care right now, I’ve come this far - I feel like he just wants to be liked so much that I just can’t stand him,” Kyrgios said.

"This whole celebration thing [the 'boob-throwing' celebration] that he does after matches, it’s like so cringeworthy. It’s very cringeworthy.

"He’s an unbelievable player, he’s a champion of the sport; one of the greatest we’ll ever see. He probably will, honestly, I reckon he will get the Grand Slam count, I reckon he will overpass Federer.

"We're talking about a guy who pulled out of the Australian Open one year because it was too hot. No matter how many Grand Slams he wins, he will never be the greatest for me.

Wimbledon 2019: Nick Kyrgios takes swipe at Pat Cash over Rafael Nadal praise

Wimbledon 2019: Nick Kyrgios takes swipe at Pat Cash over Rafael Nadal praise Kyrgios suffered a four-set loss to Nadal in a contentious second-round clash on Friday morning (AEST).

Nick Kyrgios has launched a remarkable attack on some of the leading players in men’s tennis ahead of the 2019 French Open draw, including Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Fernando Verdasco.

INDIAN WELLS, Calif. — The match point does not always sum up the match, but it did on Wednesday. Rafael Nadal, desperately trying to hold off Roger Federer, went for an old standby: a left-handed serve high to the backhand.

"Simply because, I've played him twice and like, I'm sorry, but if you can't beat me, you're not the greatest of all time. Because if you like look at my day-to-day routine and how much I train and how much I put in, it's zero compared to him.”

It was an interview that sent the Tennis community into meltdown as the often maligned 24-year-old attracted even more scrutiny, not just from the professional sporting community, but the world over.

The ramifications would be felt just hours later, when the Aussie stormed out of his second-round clash at the Italian Open in a spectacular meltdown, booting a water bottle and then picking up a fold-up wooden chair and hurling it across the court.

It was a tumultuous time for prodigious talent who has only seemed to become more comfortable in his bold and often polarising statements as the season has rolled on.

Kyrgios makes 'club' plans after doubles loss

Kyrgios makes 'club' plans after doubles loss Aussie Nick Kyrgios never looked happier after a loss than he did following his mixed doubles defeat at Wimbledon. So much so, he was seemingly caught planning his evening at a "club" before the post-match press conference.

The most impressive part of the night wasn’t Nick Kyrgios upsetting Novak Djokovic 7-6 (9), 7-5, giving the young Aussie the distinction of having defeated each of The Big Three — Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and now Djokovic — in his first career meeting with them.

Nick Kyrgios has used a podcast at the Rome Masters as the platform to reveal his disdain for Novak Djokovic 's "cringeworthy" postmatch celebrations and Rafael Nadal's "super salty" double standards.

He also teamed up with American Desirae Krawczyk but unfortunately the pair were defeated 7-6, 6-7, 5-7 in the first round, as the Canberran sorted their evening plans in the post match press conference.

"Yeh we're probably going to start there. Then we've got a club set-up. It's going to be outrageous," Kyrgios said into his phone, appearing to leave a voice message."

Yesterday, Djokovic warned Federer that he was coming for his records ahead of their final on Sunday.

Djokovic, the reigning champion and world No.1, has eased through to his sixth SW19 showpiece and victory over eight-time winner Federer would earn him a 16th grand slam title.

That would take him to just four behind the Swiss and, at five years his junior, few would back against him going well past Federer's total.

Another record in his sight is the most weeks at world No.1, another milestone Federer holds with 310.

The Serbian is currently on 260, but if he continues to dominate the men's game he could have surpassed that by this time next year.

And the 32-year-old admits he is "looking to make history".

'A fraudulent life': How Nick Kyrgios 'brittle ego' leads him to go out partying and drinking as a ready-made excuse because he can't handle losing Matthew Syed, who represented Great Britain in table tennis and now works as a journalist, claimed Kyrgios, 24, puts on a carefree public persona to excuse his own shortcomings 'I don't think Kyrgios is unconventional at all, and I certainly don't think he has a big ego. On the contrary, I think the Australian's ego is brittle,' Syed wrote in The Times. Syed said Kyrgios makes 'serial attempts' to exaggerate his lack of professionalism to explain away losses rather than having to admit he was outplayed.

McEnroe told Kyrgios to give it his all, and that there was no disgrace losing to a good player, trying to help him calibrate his burning will to win so the flames didn’t lick too high. Liam Gallagher tweeted : “Nick kyrgios don’t listen to the beige boys do your thang do your thang well done as you were LG x”.

"I've done enough in my career so I can stop tennis, professional tennis, at any time. But I don't do it for those reasons.

"My first reason is because I really enjoy it. I still do. I have support from my family. Of course, I am looking to take history in this sport.

"Of course, I would love to have a shot at as many grand slam titles as possible. Those are probably the top goals and ambitions.

"Next to that is the historic No.1, which is not so far away."

This will be the fourth time Djokovic and Federer have met in a grand slam final and the 48th time they have gone head-to-head.
