Nick Kyrgios had a great reaction to seeing Novak Djokovic’s Capoeira training video, saying he is in trouble if that’s what’s required to win a Grand Slam.
Djokovic, 35, has returned to the gym and this week he took to Instagram to reveal that he has been practicing Capoeira training.
Capoeira training comes from Latin America as it is a martial arts form that includes dance, music and acrobatics.
“Capoeira training with @mestrepulmao,” Djokovic wrote on Instagram.
After seeing Djokovic’s latest training method, Kyrgios had quite a reaction.
“If you’re telling me this is what it takes to win a slam, then I’m in trouble,” Kyrgios wrote in the comment section.

Djokovic encouraged Kyrgios to keep believing
Kyrgios, 27, made his maiden Grand Slam final at this past Wimbledon.
Kyrgios competed extremely well but it was Djokovic who claimed a 4-6 6-3 6-4 7-6 (3) win.
“Nick, you’ll be back,” Djokovic told Kyrgios on-court. “Not just at Wimbledon, but in finals. I know it’s tough to find words of consolation after a tough loss like this, but you showed why you deserve to be one of the best players in the world, particularly on this surface. Congrats to you and your team for an amazing tournament, I wish you all the best.”
Meanwhile, Djokovic is still hoping to get the green light to compete at the US Open.
Djokovic hasn’t been vaccinated against COVID-19 and that’s why he will likely miss out on the Masters events in Montreal and Cincinnati, as well as the US Open.
Even though Djokovic’s chances of competing at the US Open aren’t high, he is still preparing as if he will be allowed to play there.
“I am preparing as if I will be allowed to compete, while I await to hear if there is any room for me to travel to US. Fingers crossed!” Djokovic said in another Instagram post.
