Nick Kyrgios: People may think Andy Murray is boring. He is very funny!

Nick Kyrgios had a fun Friday last week before the start of the Cincinnati Open with Andy Murray at Kings Island. The Australian enjoyed the experience a lot. About the British player, Nick said: 'He's just a funny guy.

I don't know. He's really down-to-earth and he's actually a really funny guy. People maybe think he doesn't have much of a personality or a bit boring. When I was young, coming onto the tour, he was obviously helping me if I needed anything.

Now I guess I just got to know him, and I don't think -- he doesn't take himself too seriously. So I think that's the similarity we have. We just like to kind of keep things, you know, kind of relaxed in the locker room and just have some laughs, but on the court, we couldn't get any different, I think.' Asked why their video on Instagram turned so popular, Kyrgios replied: 'I don't know if it's a hit.

We got in trouble with it. I was supposed to take it down but I haven't. It was unbelievable. Unbelievable. I wish I could do it again. But I will get in trouble for it.' Kyrgios also commented on his activity with own foundation: 'My motivation with tennis is always going to be on and off, but I guess just helping and, I mean, with the Foundation and helping kids and doing all the work at the tournaments, whether it's tournaments or something, I just, I don't know, gives me a bit of a kick.

I think, at the end of the day, that's what it's about. Doesn't really matter how many tennis matches you win or anything like that. These kids, obviously they look up to all of us guys playing, so if you could make one person's day, it's a pretty special day.' ALSO READ: Tsitsipas: 'Rafael Nadal is a beast, monster.
