WOW! Nick Kyrgios Partners Venus Williams for Wimbledon Championships 2021 Doubles Campaign
Earlier while leaving for Wimbledon Championships 2021, Nick Kyrgios had asked for his mixed doubles partner suggestions on his Instagram handle. Now the search has ended with tennis legend Venus Williams all set to partner Kyrgios in London.
Kyrgios comes into Wimbledon after not playing since the Australian Open 2021. Whereas Venus Williams needed a wildcard to compete in singles as her ranking had plummeted in recent years. And both Kyrgios and Venus are capable doubles players and hence when they both were free, it was a good decision to team up and play entertaining tennis.
Kyrgios had earlier asked on his Instagram handle: “Mixed doubles for Wimbledon. Who wants in?”. And now he has a new partner in Venus.
Venus Williams earlier admission to having Nick Kyrgios as doubles partner
Earlier back in 2017, Venus was once asked who she would name as her dream doubles partner, and to everyone’s surprise, she had named Kyrgios. “I don’t know, I think it’d be fun to play with Nick Kyrgios,” she said. To Venus’ comments, Medvedev replied: “Thankssssss legend”
Venus Williams has two Grand Slams in mixed doubles back in 1998. At that time she was a teenager and had Justin Gimelstob as her partner. Since then she has changed a few partners, however, hasn’t had any success. She once partnered with Bob Bryan and reached the Wimbledon mixed doubles final in 2006.
The Wimbledon 2021 singles draw was unveiled and Venus Williams finds herself against Mihaela Buzarnescu. Whereas Kyrgios will play against Halle Open 2021 champion, Ugo Humbert. The Australian is pumped up about his first-round clash and even expressed that on his social media handles. “Let’s give the people what they want!!!” Kyrgios wrote on Instagram.
Venus has turned 41 recently and again brings in question whether this will be her last Wimbledon. She is a five-time singles champion and a five-time doubles champion with her sister, Serena Williams. Let’s see he she does with Kyrgios.
