Could Nick Kyrgios Become Ben Stiller's Tennis Coach?

Tennis star and actor share fun exchange on Twitter

Nick Kyrgios received a surprise taker when he asked on Twitter Tuesday whether anyone would be interested in his coaching. Actor Ben Stiller volunteered.

“I’m open to it. But would need to know you’re serious,” Stiller wrote.

“Let’s do it. I’m all in, what you thinking?” Kyrgios replied.

“First we need to decide who is coaching who,” Stiller said.

“I’ll coach you to get you in a professional tournament. Then you coach me to get me in a movie,” Kyrgios answered.

Will we see Kyrgios and Stiller together on a tennis court one day soon? Only time will tell.

Stiller has shown interest in the sport before. He enjoyed a bit of banter with Kyrgios during a match at last year's BNP Paribas Open and has also built a friendship with Diego Schwartzman.
