Eliminated in the quarterfinals of Wimbledon, Ajla Tomljanovic did not like that the first question of her press conference relates to the accusations against her former boyfriend Nick Kyrgios.
Ajla Tomljanovic has it bad. The Australian has just played in her first career Grand Slam quarter-final at Wimbledon, but the first question she was asked was about a completely different topic: accusations of violence against her ex-boyfriend Nick Kyrgios.
“It’s aquite disappointing that after almost 2 hours of play in the quarter-finals, this was the first question the journalist chose to ask me, and that he never asked anything related to the match”commented Tomljanovic on Twitter, attaching an article from an Australian media.
Quite disappointing that after almost 2 hours of playing my quarterfinals that that was the first question the journalist chose to ask me, and never proceeded to ask anything match related. Glad to see headlines mostly about that now. Do better 😤 https://t.co/ygoUDe1XBb

Kyrgios is accused of assault by another of his former companions, Chiara Passani. He is summoned on August 2 by a court in Canberra and faces up to two years in prison. Reluctantly, Tomljanovic reacted to this affair. “I am definitely against domestic violence. I hope it will be resolved. But yeah, I mean I didn’t have that experience with him.”said the Australian.
In a rather profound press conference, where he spoke about the suicidal thoughts that crossed his mind at the end of 2019, Kyrgios also touched on this case. “I have a lot of things on my mind, a lot of things I want to talk about, my point of view on this, did he declare. My lawyers informed me that I could not say anything at this time. I understand that everyone wants to ask about this, but I can’t tell you too much right now. »
