‘Wow wow! That’s a layoff, that’s it,” she said with a smile on her face.

Kokkinakis and Kyrgios won the hearts and minds of Australia when they formed the unbeatable duo ‘Special Ks’ at the 2022 Grand Slam.

His friendship with Kyrgios was shared with tennis fans in the new Netflix tennis docuseries Break Point, which aired last week.

Kyrgios withdrew from this year’s tournament, citing a knee injury, and said he would use Kokkinakis’ stamina as inspiration on his road to recovery, as the 26-year-old also battled injury problems of his own.

“I think I can take inspiration from someone like Thanasi, who has had a lot of injuries and has come back,” he said.

The knee injury is not a career-threatening setback, but Kyrgios made the ‘sensible’ decision to withdraw to avoid long-term damage.
