Nick Kyrgios has reportedly attempted his most audacious passing shot yet, sliding into the DMs of British pop star Rita Ora after she landed in Sydney to begin filming the new season of “The Voice.”
Kyrgios is newly single after his rollercoaster relationship with Chiara Passari appeared to end in a swirl of Instagram accusations and bad blood.
But the tennis star, 25, is looking to rebound fast according to The Daily Telegraph, “sliding into the DMs” of the 30-year-old who is also appearing at Sydney’s Mardi Gras parade.
He might have a little more work to do, however.
“It’s not something Rita is taking seriously,” a source from the The Voice told The Daily Telegraph.
“It’s been a bit of flirtatious banter, nothing more and certainly nothing Rita is serious about.”
Ora will be in Sydney for a couple of months while carrying out coaching duties on the Australian version of the reality singing contest.
Kyrgios, who was recently spotted with fellow tennis star Thanasi Kokkinakis, is yet to declare when he will rejoin the tour after his third-round elimination at the Australian Open.
He was recently added to the field for the Qatar Open which begins on March 8, but it remains to be seen whether he will travel to Doha.
