Nick Kyrgios calls out Novak Djokovic to level their head-to-head record

Recently, Nick Kyrgios made a promotional post on his Instagram page for his latest podcast episode, on which the Australian hosted his first guest star. Australian comedian and impersonator Elliot Loney made a special appearance on episode 4 of the No Boundaries podcast.

Additionally, in the caption for the post, Kyrgios asked fans which guest stars they would like to see on the show. After that, the Instagram page for his podcast, the ‘noboundariesshow‘, commented,@djokernole what we thinking”.

Not only did the show talk about bringing World No. 1 Novak Djokovic on the show, but they also tagged him directly. No doubt, this move was in order to get the Serbian’s attention.

However, the funniest thing about the entire thing is Nick Kyrgios’ reply itself. The Australian replied, “He at least going to try and level the head to head,” in response to the comment on Novak Djokovic.

Kyrgios is of course talking about the head-to-head record between the two players, which heavily leans in the Nick’s favor. The two players have met only twice, in 2017, when Kyrgios beat Novak on both occasions. Moreover, in both their meetings, Kyrgios prevailed in straight sets over the Serbinator.
