Russian tennis star Anna Kalinskaya has shared an enigmatic post on her Instagram page after confirming the end of her relationship with Australian ‘bad boy’ Nick Kyrgios.
“F*ck energy vampire,” the player – currently 95th in the world rankings – wrote alongside a black and white photo. It baffled her followers, who immediately suggested that the message was addressed to the Australian player.

A few hours earlier, the Russian tennis star made another Instagram post which said: “You’re not a bad boy, you are simply a bad person,” but the picture was soon deleted from her page.
F*ck energy vampire 🙂
During an Instagram question and answer session on Monday, Kalinskaya said she is not dating Kyrgios anymore, and asked her fans to respect her privacy.
“No, I don’t [date Kyrgios]. We broke up. We aren’t friends. I understand you are his friends and it’s cool but I’m not going to talk about him. Have some respect for me as well please. Thanks,” the 21-year-old wrote.
Despite neither of them ever confirming that they were a couple, Kalinskaya and Kyrgios have been constantly rumored to be dating, with multiple break-ups forming part of their romantic relationship.
In December Kalinskaya called the Australian player “Satan” and asked him to leave her social media page after he left a comment under one of her photos.
However, three months later the couple were seen together attending a Los Angeles Lakers home game at the Staples Center, reigniting rumors about their possible romance.
Also in March, the hot-tempered Australian was spotted planting a kiss on Kalinskaya’s forehead in Acapulco, after he withdrew from his first-round match at the Mexico Open.
It is currently unknown what happened between the two players, whose competitive schedule has been affected by the Covid-19 crisis.
The tennis stars, who have made a habit of using social media posts as a way of communicating, might reunite again as soon as the tennis season resumes.
