The new tattoo, which was revealed on Tuesday by journalist Caspar Salmon, is clearly displayed on the outside of Kyrgios’ left leg and features the following quote:
“If you give a man a mas, he will become his genuine self.”
A quick check through the tennis player’s Instagram page reveals that the tattoo was on his leg when he competed in Stuttgart.
The phrase is from The Dark Knight and was spoken by The Joker, played by Heath Ledger.
As the tennis world’s focus switches to the approaching Wimbledon Grand Slam, Kyrgios has become entangled in a conflict with fellow Davis Cup player Bernard Tomic.
On social media, the two traded barbs, with Kyrgios calling Tomic “Australia’s most loathed athlete.”
Things changed when Tomic challenged Kyrgios to a million-dollar boxing battle or a one-time tennis match.
The heated back and forth between the two became the latest episode in their long-running dispute.
