Our suspicions from earlier this month about the budding romance between Ajla Tomljanovic and Nick Kyrgios were on point. On Tuesday, Channel 7 News Australia caught footage of soon-to-be Aussie citizen Tomljanovic kissing Australian bad boy Kyrgios when the two left the practice courts in Melbourne.

The couple confirmed their relationship in a Saturday press conference following their mixed doubles loss to number one seeds Sania Mirza and Ivan Dodig, which was also the first time the duo played together competitively. While the team suffered a defeat, Ajla and Nick were all smiles and were comfortable playing with each other due to time spent off court.
This is hot news for tennis fans, especially considering Kyrgios’ already controversial reputation has suffered more hits at this year’s Australian Open; first, because of his criticism of referee James Keothavong in a loss to Tomas Berdych, and second because he answered a phone on court before his mixed doubles match with Ajla.
No matter what the public thinks of her boyfriend, Ajla (and her family, as sister Hana is close to Kyrgios as well) seems to be happy, and we wish her the best!
