“He hit with me at the Miami Open when we were 13 but we’re not super close. I guess he asked the doubles question because I did an interview for ATP socials and they asked me who I wanted to be friends with. I said Nick. I just really respect him as a person and player,” she told the media when asked about a friendship with Kyrgios.
It’s not just the ATP stars Gauff has set her sights on either.
During her appearance on the Match Point Canada, she also revealed the one WTA player she’d love to see on the other side of the net.
“Definitely Serena Williams,” she said.
“You know, she’s been on my bucket list forever to play and she’s obviously one of my idols. I got to play Venus twice so Serena, just one time before she heads out. But yeah, that would be a dream match. Especially at a Grand Slam, that would be pretty cool.”
