Nick Kyrgios and Thanasi Kokkinakis gallery: Special K circus hits the Australian Open
Nick Kyrgios and Thanasi Kokkinakis are having the time of their lives at the 2021 Australian Open with some calling it a circus act and others just enjoying the entertainment they provide.
They have been described as the great entertainers at Melbourne Park this year and Thanasi Kokkinakis and Nick Kyrgios certainly delivered in the opening round as they defeated their compatriots.
The Australian pair enjoyed several wild moments, but they were composed when they had to be and the team work certainly made the dream work as the marched on.
The duo has always given the spectators exactly what they want to see during their win over Tim Putz and Michael Venus, something Australian fans want and enjoy seeing at Melbourne Park.
This is the reaction you get most of the time in the men’s doubles action involving Kyrgios with Kokkinakis, spectators go wild while the pair continues to entertain.
There were moments of frustration at certain times with Kyrgios slamming his racket at one point, but all is well that ends well. And a lot has ended well at Melbourne Park for the pair.
It is fair to say that the Australian pair have done their best to hype out the crowd – much to the frustration of their opponents, but the home fans don’t mind going up a few decibels.
And the fans go wild! Kyrgios and Kokkinakis have become the darlings of the Melbourne Park crowds with young and old enjoying their antics.
A young tennis fan got a lot more than he bargained for as he copped a wayward shot from Nick Kyrgios in the body, but he did end up with a racket from the Australian.
Kyrgios and Kokkinakis certainly know how to get the best out of each other during matches as they have known each other for more than a decade.
The funny pair get ready for their bump dance at Melbourne Park, which certainly has gripped the imagination of everyone at Melbourne Park.
