Nick Kyrgios shared a screenshot on his Instagram story of his hilarious DM conversation with Novak Djokovic. The 27-year-old had shared a video on social media of him bouncing the ball frequently and taking a lot of time before serving. His actions resembled how the 21-time Grand Slam champion prepares before letting a serve fly.

After watching the video, Djokovic asked Kyrgios in good spirits, if he was mimicking him. To this, Kyrgios gave a hilarious reply, joking that the Serb takes ample time before serving.

“Hahahahahahahaha. That’s so funny. Yours is WORSE. MATE YOU TAKE 47283728 hours to serve,” Nick Kyrgios replied to Novak Djokovic.

The former world No. 1 agreed and said that he will work on having a “super sonic speed routine” like Kyrgios.

“Hahahahhahaha true. Sometimes, not always. Need to work on your super sonic speed routine,” the 35-year-old wrote in response.

While sharing the screenshot of the conversation, Kyrgios wrote: Honestly I never thought I’d be having convos like this.”
