Naomi Osaka is willing to accept Nick Kyrgios’ of a major mixed doubles partnership on one condition.
Kyrgios must carry the team.
Last week, Kyrgios posted this Instagram video of his hitting session with Osaka captioned “Quick LA session with @naomiosaka ?? Analysing my serve to find any small detail…
“Her hunger to learn was pretty epic to see from a champ like her.”
Asked in her Indian Wells presser if she’d be willing to accept Kyrgios’ offer of a 2023 Australian Open mixed doubles partnership, Osaka offered conditional acceptance.
“If he wants to attempt to carry us, I’ll consider it,” Osaka told the media in Indian Wells. “But I haven’t played doubles in years and I’m not quite great at it.
“I know he just won the Australian Open doubles title. Yeah, if he wants to do everything…”
