The biggest question ever asked, at least in terms of friendships and romantic relationships. If you have to save one person among a best friend and a girlfriend, who would you save? And recently, the 2022 Wimbledon finalist gave a very smart answer to this question.

The Aussie tennis sensation is quite active on his social media accounts. Since he is at home recovering from the knee surgery, Kyrgios had a question-and-answer session. That too, a fun version of it. 

During the session, a fan among his 3.4 million followers questioned him, “If you could only save one person, Thannis or Cos, who would you choose?” On one side, the tennis star has his best buddy and his doubles partner, Thanasi Kokkinakis, with whom he won the doubles title at the Australian Open last year. And on the other side, stands his girlfriend Costeen Hatzi, who is madly in love with him since December 2021.
