Eugenie Bouchard sparked rumors she’s dating Nick Kyrgios‘ after being spotted in his private box for the Australian’s match against Rafael Nadal in the second round of Wimbledon.
The 2014 Wimbledon finalist Bouchard brought along her twin sister Charlotte and, to add fuel to the fire, the Canadian glamour girl posted a photo of Kyrgios serving along with three love heart eye emojis.
Later on, Bouchard sparked further whispers as she kept defending Kyrgios’ controversial underarm serve.
However, Bouchard and Kyrgios have been known as off-court friends. They have played mixed doubles together in the past and practiced together ahead of Wimbledon. The 25-year-old Bouchard, who lost in the first round of ladies’ singles to Slovenian world No.61 Tamara Zidansek, commented on their practice:
He’s so chill, he’s very nice and was making the practice for me, which I appreciated. I asked him to do a couple really hard serves. I was able to return a few. It’s great for reaction because the ball comes so much faster — a different spin, more aggressive spin. Usually after hitting with a guy like that the ball seems slower when I’m hitting with a girl.
Kyrgios’ most famous relationship is definitely the one with Croatian-born Australian colleague Ajla Tomljanovic. The couple has been on and off since 2015. Now they seem to have been in the off phase since early 2019 and they are not even following each other on Instagram. However, Kyrgios still has that “Ajla” tattoo on his wrist.
In spring 2019, Kyrgios was also rumored to be dating 17-year-old rising tennis star Amanda Anisimova, as they poke each other on social media and were spotted together in Indian Wells, Miami and Rome.
What do you think, how likely is it that Genie and Nick are an item?
