Reilly Opelka is one of the strongest and funniest tennis players in the world. The American giant had a rather original idea of using the picture of one of his trolls as his profile picture. The troll who has only three followers, took a dig at Opelka after the American lost to Kyrgios at the Citi Open.

“On match point, I swear he was headed to the sideline while a Krygios backhand was still in the air mid-court. He didn’t even bother waiting for it to land.Disgraceful from an entitled. oversized punk”, wrote the troll on Twitter. Opelka, who was at his banterous best replied, “Are you height shaming me?” and afterwards changed his Twitter profile picture to the same one as that of the troll who goes by the name of Henry Rosen.

Fourth seed Reilly Opelka lost to Nick Kyrgios 6-7, 2-6 in the Round of 16 of the Citi Open. The American star was nowhere close to his best in a match that was interrupted by bad weather. This was Opelka’s first tournament on the ATP tour since his second-round exit from Wimbledon.
