The association between Novak Djokovic and Nick Kyrgios is a matter of time. For the past few months, the two men have been getting along wonderfully and have even become friends. The turning point was the expulsion of the Serb from Australia. Kyrgios had given his support to the Djoker. Since then, the relationship is very good. In late December, the Australian had even dropped a small bomb. “If Novak is allowed to go to the USA, we will play doubles in Indian Wells. Are you all ready?” he wrote on Instagram. Problem, Nole will obviously not be allowed to come to the US. However, the idea of playing doubles with Kyrgios appeals to him.
In a press conference in Adelaide, “Djoko” spoke about the formation of this tandem. “I haven’t been his favorite person, let’s put it that way, for several years, but he was one of the few people who supported me last year, and I respect that and appreciate that. At times like this, you can really see who is really supporting you and who is on your side and going with the flow of society and the pressures that the media puts on them. He has been unconditionally supportive of me in my time of need. Since then, our relationship has changed for the better. I talked to him about doing something a week before the Australian Open started. I talked to Nick, I’d like to play with him, and he agreed, but he wants shorter sets. Let’s see if it works,” Djokovic said. A great attraction of this year 2023.
