Australian Open 2021: Best mates Kyrgios and Kokkinakis enjoy playing together

Best mates Kyrgios and Kokkinakis enjoy playing together at Australian Open 2021

After their first round doubles win at the Australian Open yesterday, Nick Kyrgios and close friend Thanasi Kokkinakis were back on court.

They took on fourth-seeded Wesley Koolhof and Lukasz Kubot in the second round.

Again, as Kyrgios walked into the empty court, he waved to the non-existing crowd and did the Djokovic ‘heart-throwing celebration’ move.

COVID-19 news: As of yesterday the whole state of Victoria went into a hard five-day  lockdown. This means that no fans are able to attend matches.

The two Australian-Greeks go a long way back and have been childhood friends. This makes their on-court partnership even more great.

Unfortunately Koolhof and Kubot won 6-3, 6-4.

But, Kokkinakis and Kyrgios have won Australia’s best bromance.
