Game over: Kyrgios and Kalinskaya’s messy romance

Game over: Kyrgios and Kalinskaya’s messy romance

Nick Kyrgios’ relationship with Russian tennis star Anna Kalinskaya has reportedly ended on bad terms.

Although the details surrounding their relationship is unknown, the two were spotted together at an Acapulco street stall in March, with Kyrgios kissing Kalinskaya on the forehead.

Shortly after, the couple attended an NBA game in Los Angeles together.

The Aussie was also seen cheering on the 21-year-old at the Citi Open in Washington last August.

However, a series of cryptic Instagram posts from Kalinskaya suggests the couple’s recent break-up was not pleasant.

The world No. 95 shared a black and white photo on her Instagram with the caption, “You’re not a bad boy, you are simply a bad person,” with most followers assuming the message was directed at Kyrgios.

Hours later, she posted another snap with the caption, “F*** energy vampire,” but the picture was deleted soon after.

Kalinskaya confirmed the break-up on Monday during an Instagram Q&A, adding the two are no longer on speaking terms.

“We broke up. We aren’t friends. I understand you are his friends and it’s cool but I’m not going to talk about him. Have some respect for me as well please,” Kalinskaya posted.

Although they never confirmed they were dating, rumours of their on-and-off romance have been circulating for months.

In December, Kalinskaya called Kygrios “Satan” after he commented on one of her social media posts.

The 24-year-old Kyrgios previously dated Croatian-Australian tennis player Anya Tomljanovic, but they split in 2017.
