Nick Kyrgios has been linked with several stars of the tennis world and was even rumoured to be with Eugenie Bouchard’s sister Beatrice last month.
But now the mercurial Aussie hasn’t hidden his intentions for a fellow tennis star, 20-year-old Russian Anna Kalinskaya.
Kalinskaya made waves at the US Open when she toppled American Sloane Stephens in the opening round.
But it was on Instagram where things went up a level with Kyrgios posting a story to his account with an image of the pair with the caption: “my face when I see you doing your thing today”.
The love over social media didn’t end there with Kyrgios continually popping up in Kalinskaya’s comments.
Her last five posts on Instagram have all received love from the Aussie, with the comments ranging from “little monster” to “sleep now” and “oilyyyyyyyy”.
Nothing has officially been confirmed, but the rumours began to swirl when Kyrgios made an appearance in the coaching box for Kalinskaya during the Citi Open in Washington.
And it appears his influence on her has been strong with Kalinskaya using one of Kyrgios’ tactics during a match, pulling out the underarm serve.
