Just when you thought the world of tennis couldn’t get more controversial and funnier, Russian tennis player Daniil Medvedev extended the offer of a double team up to controversial Australian counterpart, Nick Kyrgios. Kyrgios has been in the news off late for all the wrong reasons as the Australian has had a hard time trying to conform to the norms that we see in place within the tennis court.
23-year-old Medvedev recently arrived to Shanghai for the ATP Masters and had a Q&A session on Instagram, where fans asked him multiple questions about his future plans. The session was held for followers so that they could learn a bit more about the life of the tennis prodigy and how he handles his other activities.
While the first few questions were about the personal life of Medvedev, including his family, fans soon started asking professional questions. One of the fans asked Medvedev “When will you play doubles with Kyrgios?”
Medvedev saw a good offer in the question and tagged Kyrgios in the post asking “Any doubles maybe?”
Medvedev has been in hot form off late and is currently the world’s fourth ranked player. His success has been hidden from none, and many supporters of the game have been positively influenced by his success.
While Medvedev previously had the reputation of a ‘bad boy’ he’s surely changing it for the better and wants to be known as a professional and not as a bad boy.
The team up of Kyrgios with Medvedev has already got tennis fans fantasizing about the prospects that could come. Both players have quite a reputation for verbal attacks on the court and it will quite an act seeing them battle it out on the same side of the court.
