Kyrgios and Djokovic set side bet on dinner date ahead of Wimbledon clash

Nick Kyrgios and Novak Djokovic have accepted a tasty side bet alongside the £2m (A$3.5m) they will play for in the Wimbledon final.

The unlikely but obviously blossoming ‘bromance’ between the two, which was revealed as they prepare to fight in Sunday’s final, took a new, ironic twist on the eve of the match when the pair came to blows to an Instagram chat, presumably to the delight of their millions of followers.

The finalists, who were once renowned for their drawn daggers, are getting along much better, even becoming friends on social media, since Kyrgios proved Djokovic’s main defender during his pre-Open Melbourne detention ordeal. from Australia.

Now the two budding pals have agreed they should go out to dinner, with the winner footing the bill, even though Kyrgios is apparently just as keen on them going out and having a wild time at a nightclub.

The couple met in training and had a word before taking the conversation to social media.

Djokovic: “It took you five years to say something nice about me.”

Kyrgios: “But I defended you when it mattered.”

Djokovic: “You did it, I appreciate that.”

Kyrgios: “Are we friends now?”

Djokovic: “If you invite me for a drink or dinner, I accept. Tomorrow’s PS winner pays.

Kyrgios: “Deal, let’s go to a nightclub and go crazy.”

That last comment may well have been Kyrgios’ cheeky nod to photos taken at a nightclub in Belgrade amid the Covid pandemic when Djokovic, organizer of controversial Adria tournaments, was seen dancing bare breasts.

At the time, Kyrgios wasn’t impressed at all, tweeting, “Rash decision to go ahead with ‘exposure’ quick recovery guys, but that’s what happens when you don’t. disregard all the protocols. This is not a joke.”
