Telling photo all but confirms Nick Kyrgios romance rumours

The tennis world is convinced about the dating rumours surrounding Nick Kyrgios.

The Aussie star's relationship with young Russian star Anna Kalinskaya has been a topic of hot debate for tennis fans recently.

NO WAY: Tennis world 'in shock' as 'fifth major' is cancelled

Kyrgios and Kalinskaya have appeared to be an item for months, the Aussie star moving on after splitting with compatriot Ajla Tomnljanovic in 2019.

Earlier this week, the Daily Mail published pictures of Kyrgios and Kalinskaya hanging out in Acapulco after the Aussie retired hurt at the Mexican Open with a wrist injury.

The photos show Kyrgios planting a kiss on Kalinskaya’s forehead as they eat tacos together.

Now, further evidence has emerged of the blossoming relationship between the two tennis players.

In a photo posted to her Instagram account, Kalinskaya can be seen holding hands with Kyrgios at an NBA game at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

If ever the tennis world needed proof of their relationship status, then surely the touching gesture between the pair is about as close to it as you could get.

The Russian star appears to be wearing Kyrgios' Lakers jersey with the late Kobe Bryant’s number eight on it, while the Aussie adorns his usual Boston Celtics jersey.

Rumours started swirling last September when Kyrgios shared a photo of himself with Kalinskaya, writing: “My face when I see you doing your thing today.”

He was also spotted cheering her on from the stands at the Citi Open in Washington last August.

Kalinskaya also features heavily on Kyrgios’ Instagram story, the Aussie sharing two videos of the World No.111 recently.

Tomljanovic moves on with Berrettini

Kyrgios dated fellow Aussie player Tomljanovic for a number of years before things ended in mysterious circumstances.

Tomljanovic removed all photos of the pair from her social media pages in 2017 after Kyrgios was seen partying with other women at Wimbledon.

But she’s well and truly moved on, stepping out with new man Matteo Berrettini at the Citi Taste of Tennis Event in Melbourne in January before the Australian Open.

Tomljanovic and Italian tennis star Berrettini were special guests at the culinary event.

The tennis stars have been an item since late last year, with Tomljanovic spotted cheering on Berrettini and the US Open in September.

“Ajla has a good soul; I would even say pure, and that I had to find out step by step,” Berrettini said of his Aussie girlfriend in November.
