The Russian tennis player Kalinskaya had a downright ‘no’ to that question. And she mentioned breaking up with the Aussie player. She was lukewarm about the talks regarding Kyrgios and asked the tennis fans to show some respect for her.

“No I don’t! We broke up. We aren’t friends. I understand you are his fans and it’s cool but I’m not going to talk about him. I have some respect for me as well, please. Thanks,” Kalinskaya replied to the question of whether she’s dating Nick or not.

In 2019, reportedly they were together as Nick Kyrgios was spotted cheering for Kalinskaya at the 2019 Citi Open in Washington, USA.

Later, at US Open 2019 she pulled off her first major career win and advanced to the second round. She defeated the former champion, Sloane Stephens, in the opening round of Flushing Meadows major.

In 2020, Kyrgios made a phenomenal start of the season by pulling off some match wins at ATP Cup and later reached the fourth round of Australian Open.

But in the month of February, the Aussie was hit by injuries. He retired from the round one match of Acapulco due to wrist issues, and that stopped him from defending his ATP 500 title on the Mexican court.
