KYRGIOS. Stefanos Tsitsipas smells good

CITI OPEN. Nick Kyrgios offered one of his quirky interviews

Tsitsipas and Kyrgios

Nick Kyrgios and Stefanos Tsitsipas have established an “unpredictable bromance.”

The Australian and the Greek have a completely different character, and they used to quarrel (also online) in the recent past. However, they have delighted the tennis fans at the Citi Open when they partnered together in doubles. Eventually, the pair lost their opening match against Cabal and Farah that were seeded no.1, but Stenofas and Nick had an unexpected chemistry on court.

About smelling good…

After the match, Kyrgios had one of his funny interviews to comment:

“He’s only just begun. Hopefully, he doesn’t make the same mistakes I have. If he keeps his head down, he can do some special things. He smells good as well. Every time before we’d serve I would [a deep inhale] —‘not bad’.”

… about not being a bad influencer

The Australian added

“I’m gonna stay as far away as possible unless it’s a doubles court, because I’m a bad influence.”

Will Kyrgios and Tsitsipas play doubles also in Cincinnati?

After the match, Nick posted a very nice message on Instagram addressing Stefanos. At the end of it, he wrote: “See you in Cincinnati.”
