Nick Kyrgios made a one-word reply when asked about Boris Becker’s offer to coach him.

The controversial Kyrgios has been without an official coach for several years and he admitted at the start of the 2019 season that that is unlikely to change, saying: “I haven’t got a coach and I think I’m just going to go about my thing the same way that I did this year.”

The Australian took on Steve Johnson in the first round of the US Open on Tuesday and Becker told Eurosport ahead of the match that he would be open to coaching the 24-year-old.

“I would like to coach him!” the tennis great said. “I think that would be cool, such a player who is not coachable.

“As a good coach, you have to face the challenge to find a way to communicate with your player. Whether I have to do this to me is another question.

“But if I just want to live out my passion for tennis, he would be the hottest player.

Kyrgios, who beat Johnson in three sets at Flushing Meadows, dashed the six-time Grand Slam winner’s hopes of coaching him as he replied with a simple “Nope” when asked about Becker’s offer.
