Compared to Wimbledon, the French Open "sucks," says Nick Kyrgios

The Aussie voiced his displeasure with next week's clay-court Slam on Instagram.

Nick Kyrgios is creating a stir yet again, with his latest comments aimed at the upcoming French Open.

This time, Kyrgios filmed himself on social media at the All England Club, saying the French Open "sucks" before going to a scheduled hit with Andy Murray.

The 24-year-old Aussie grabbed attention at Rome with his critiques of fellow players like Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic while speaking to the No Challenges Remaining podcast, and was defaulted from the tournament for his on-court behavior in the second round.

Following his exit at Rome, Kyrgios traveled to Wimbledon, where Murray has been training as he aims to come return from a hip injury.

"I'm hitting with Andy Murray today," Kyrgios said. 

Wimbledon's grass courts would seem an unusual stop for a player entered to play on clay next week, but according to the Times, the players trained on a green clay court. Still, Kyrgios was vocal about his preference as he walked at the All England Club.

"This is the best tournament in a the world... get rid of the clay, man. Who likes the clay," he said.

"The fact that I'm here right now and I have to go to Paris in a couple of days," he said. "The French Open sucks compared to this place. Absolutely sucks."

The story was widely picked up by French news outlets. Kyrgios is No. 36 in the rankings.
