Nick Kyrgios and Novak Djokovic were once again face-to-face on a tennis court. The All England Club hosted the reunion of the stars, although this time the setting was not Center Court but the practice courts, leading to both competitive and more relaxed moments.
The Australian is at SW19 as a commentator for television broadcasts, while the 7-time champion is preparing to play the third round against Alexei Popyrin.
Kyrgios mentioned in an interview with the Canberra Times a few days ago that he would like to hit with Djokovic, and his wish came true. They were expected to train together on Wednesday, but the rain postponed the meeting until Friday, a repeat of the 2022 Wimbledon final, though in a much more relaxed atmosphere this time.
According to the Daily Express, during the training Kyrgios commented that 'Nole' was "just too good" despite knowing all "your moves" in a post-training conversation with Djokovic. The Aussie also teased Djokovic while both laughed: "Come on Grand Slam champion," he told.
