Pickleball’s popularity has been on the rise. The racquet sport has seen a surge and due to its similarity with tennis, the two sports have often been compared.
Recently a tweet from Christian Alshon boasting of pickleball superiority over tennis attracted massive outrage on social media. Alshon happens to be a former Division III NCAA Tennis player who has switched to pickleball. A lot of tennis players including the likes of Eugenie Bouchard, Andre Agassi and Maria Sharapova were recently seen warming up on the pickleball court and over the last few months, it has become a norm as it seems.
Alshon’s post on X (formerly known as Twitter) took very little time to send shockwaves across the tennis circuit as eminent tennis personalities like Nick Kyrgios and James Blake slammed Alshon.
Alshon posted, “Pickleball has made me a much better athlete than Tennis ever did. Faster reaction time and speed are needed since the ball is only coming from 10 feet away. Point for point, pickleball requires more skill than tennis.”
While replying to Alshon, Kyrgios brought in a reference to tennis icon Roger Federer.
“Yeah. Let’s hide under the bed after this statement hahahaha bro get me the best pickleball player and compare his talent to Roger Federer. Wild tweet, wild thought. Delete right now ? I love pickle. But you had too many tequilas.”
Kyrgios has been one of the most controversial tennis players in recent times and has often been involved with opponents on the tennis court.
