Nick Kyrgios and Fernando Verdasco have engaged in a social media squabble after the Canberra tennis star called Verdasco the “saltiest” Spaniard on Twitter.

The local Canberran ignited the Twitter feud with Verdasco during the Spaniard’s fiery match against fellow Australian Thanasi Kokkinakis at the Miami Open.

The 34-year-old Spanish veteran was enraged by someone in the crowd who was talking between his serves, who Kokkinakis revealed was his father.

While Kyrgios waited for his match to start, the 17th seed posted his support for his Aussie compatriot along with a pointed remark aimed at Verdasco.

The tweet was later deleted but not before it was picked up by Krygios’ Twitter followers.

Verdasco, who ended up winning the contest 3-6 6-4 7-6(4), responded after nearly three hours on court.

Kyrgios, who enjoyed a quick 6-3 6-3 victory over the Italian Fognini later that day, did not let the spat end there and sent one final snide tweet.

In a mouth-watering contest, Kyrgios and Verdasco could play each other in the semi-finals later this week if they both win their next two matches.

Kyrgios must first get past German world number four Alex Zverev, who won their most recent match 6-2 7-6(3) 6-2 at the Davis Cup earlier this year.

It was during the tie with Germany that Kyrgios picked up the elbow injury that kept him out of four consecutive tournaments before regaining fitness for Miami.
