Interestingly, American Tennis player Venus Williams had hinted on this pairing way back in 2017. During the WTA Tour Finals tournament in Singapore. When a reporter had asked her to reveal her dream mixed doubles' partner, she had replied, "I don’t know, I think it’d be fun to play with Nick Kyrgios.”
Even Nick Kyrgios had accepted the proposal of playing with Williams as he had thanked the legend for her comments. The fans thought that they would be seeing the exciting duo play together very soon but things did not really turned out the way everyone hoped.
However, things are finally falling in place after four years and that too at Wimbledon 2021. With the charisma of Kyrgios complimented by the experience of Venus, there is no doubt that this is the pair to watch out for in this year's Grand Slam in the UK.
