Nick Kyrgios makes Thanasi Kokkinakis joke amid Aus Open win – 'I crossed the line'


Nick Kyrgios admitted it was a “dream come true” to win the Australian Open alongside long-time friend Thanasi Kokkinakis, before playing wingman and telling the “ladies” his fellow title winner would be going out to celebrate. The wildcard pair defeated fellow Aussies Matthew Ebden and Max Purcell 7-5 6-3 in Saturday’s final to lift the doubles trophy.

The ‘Special Ks’ tore through the doubles draw in Melbourne after being granted a wildcard.

They shocked the world No 1 pairing of Nikola Mektic before beating the 15th, sixth and third seeds en route to an all-Aussie final against the unseeded Ebden and Purcell.

And their momentum carried into the championship match, with the long-time friends sealing a 7-5 6-3 victory to win their first-ever Grand Slam title.

After the match, Kyrgios joked that he had “crossed the line” in his victory speech after dropping a final one-liner to end the trophy ceremony.
