When Nick Kyrgios saw Novak Djokovic‘s Capoeira training video, he had a fantastic response, saying that if that’s what it takes to win a Grand Slam, he’s in trouble. Djokovic, 35, has started working out again, and last week he revealed on Instagram that he has been learning Capoeira.
Latin America is where capoeira originated as a martial art that incorporates dance, music, and acrobatics. Djokovic posted a photo of him practicing capoeira with @mestrepulmao on Instagram. Kyrgios‘ response to Djokovic‘s most recent training technique was rather interesting.
Kyrgios commented, “If you’re telling me this is what it takes to win a slam, then I’m in trouble.”
Kyrgios was urged by Djokovic to never give up.
The 27-year-old Kyrgios competed in his first Grand Slam final at Wimbledon.
Despite Kyrgios‘ excellent performance, Djokovic prevailed 4-6 6-3 6-4 7-6 (3). On-court, Djokovic assured Kyrgios, “Nick, you’ll be back.” “Finals, not just at Wimbledon. After a painful loss like this, it can be difficult to find words of comfort, but you proved that you are deserving of being among the best players in the world, especially on this court.
I’d want to congratulate you and your team for a fantastic competition. Djokovic is still waiting for permission to compete at the US Open in the meantime. Djokovic won’t likely compete in the US Open, the Masters events in Montreal and Cincinnati, and both because he hasn’t had the COVID-19 vaccination.
Although Djokovic‘s odds of appearing at the US Open are slim, he is still putting up the effort necessary to qualify. “While I wait to find out if there is space for me to travel to the United States, I am practicing as if I will be able to compete. Hoping for the best!” In another Instagram post, Djokovic stated.
