Nick Kyrgios hints he will play doubles with Novak Djokovic in one Masters event

Nick Kyrgios has dropped a hint that he might be playing doubles with Novak Djokovic at the Indian Wells Masters. This year, Djokovic wasn't allowed to travel to the United States for the US Open and three US Masters events - Indian Wells, Miami and Cincinnati.

Should the US authorities change their vaccine policy and allow unvaccinated foreigners to enter the country, Djokovic would be allowed to return to Indian Wells and other tournaments in the US. Answering a question to a fan through his Instagram Story, Kyrgios wrote: "If Novak is allowed in the USA we are playing doubles at Indian Wells, y'all ready?"

Kyrgios, Djokovic have a bromance going on

In the past, Kyrgios and Djokovic weren't really close at all.

But at the start of the 2022 season, Kyrgios was one of the first and most vocal players who came to Djokovic's support during the Australia visa saga. That moment completely changed their relationship and since then Kyrgios and Djokovic have actually become friends in some way.

Also, the Djokovic family was extremely grateful to Kyrgios for having the courage to support Djokovic when it seemed that the whole world was against him. "I want to bring Nick Kyrgios to Belgrade, to thank him for supporting Novak, Belgrade and Serbia.

He is an entertainer, he doesn't mince his words and he will always express his opinion, whatever it may be. But above all, he is a serious athlete and tennis player. I hope that he will come to the Serbia Open before he finishes his tennis career - Djordje Djokovic said earlier this year.

In the summer, Kyrgios made his first Grand Slam final at Wimbledon. Kyrgios was playing great throughout the entire Wimbledon final but Djokovic still found a way to beat the Australian in four sets. After the final, Djokovic encouraged Kyrgios to keep his head high and that he would eventually become a Grand Slam champion. It remains to be seen if Kyrgios and Djokovic will indeed play doubles together in 2023.
