Greek and Australian tennis professionals Stefanos Tsitisipas and Nick Kyrgios are two of the most talented and exciting players on tour.
Tsitsipas is on the list of the next-gen players who may fill the shoes of the Big 3 of tennis. Kyrgios recently made his 2022 season unforgettable by reaching the final of the Wimbledon Championships.
But as far as their personal association is concerned, it is not as smooth as the tennis fans would have wanted.
On the court, their relationship is the opposite of the ‘bromance’ kind shared by the Spanish great Rafael Nadal and now retired Swiss legend Roger Federer. Their encounter at the 2022 Wimbledon Championships was intense, after which, Tsitsipas labelled Kyrgios a “bully.”
But on Saturday, Kyrgios shared a post on his relationship with Tsitsipas on his Instagram with the caption “How its going vs how it started” kept the fans on social media busy all day. The shared post contained a current pic of them from Saudi Arabia, and the other had the younger version of the duo.
The reactions of the fans to the latest post were interesting. “Plot twist,” one of the fans wrote. While others reacted “How long was the bathroom break today,” referring to the lengthy toilet breaks taken by Tsitsipas during matches. Earlier, the players also exchanged funny comments when they shared the news on social media about their pairing in the tournament.
Nick Kyrgios and Stefanos Tsitsipas lost out at the Diriyah Tennis Cup on Friday night as they were defeated by the pairing of Hubert Hurkacz and Dominic Stricker 7-6(3) 7-6(3).
It was the third time that the world No 22 and the Greek player teamed.
