Listened To Drake While Playing Tennis And Almost Lost? That’s Not Drake’s Fault

'Nick whatever-his-name-is' gets Drizzy riled up.

Drake is not amused by Nick Kyrgios.

The 19-year-old Australian tennis player joked that a subpar first set in his third round match against Jiri Vesley at the 2014 Wimbledon Championships was a result of him listening to Drake before he hit the court and Drizzy didn’t think that sh– was funny at all.

“I came out really flat, so hopefully I won’t listen to that again! It was actually Drake,” Kyrgios said after his match. “Didn’t do the job for me.”

The nerve of this guy.

Doesn’t he know that Drake is on LebRon James’ pre-game playlist? Doesn’t he know that Drake is so good at sports that his “Draft Day” freestyle brainwashed Cleveland into signing both Manziel and Wiggins? Doesn’t he know that they had to let Drake host the ESPYs since he’s helped so many athletes to win?

Anyway, when the Toronto rapper got wind of Kyrgios’ comments, it sounded like he wanted to twist up his serving arm a little.

“I also want to meet this guy that says that he lost because he listened to my music,” Drake responded in an ESPYs teleconference. “I also want to meet that guy and look him in the eye and see exactly who he is as a man and size him up and then chop him right down. Nick whatever-his-name-is — ’cause he didn’t win, so that’s how he’s going to be remembered: “Nick whatever-his-name-is.”

Kyrgios apologized on Twitter, but maybe it’s too late. Drake doesn’t make exceptions to the #NoNewFriends rule for haters. (But really, we know Drizzy is a forgiving guy — he and Kyrgios will probably make up soon enough).
