Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has Davis Cup Captain Lleyton Hewitt as the frontrunner to get perhaps the toughest gig in sport – Nick Kyrgios’ coach.
Hewitt is the $2.25 favourite to try and take the Aussies’ career to the next level.
Others in the mix include Novak Djokovic’s former mentor Boris Becker at $5.50, with Australians Pat Rafter and Darren Cahill at $6.50.
We don’t think John McEnroe ($101) will be needing to get his resume ready, nor Damir Dokic ($251) for that matter.
There’s much more to Kyrgios’ life than just tennis, and Sportsbet’s “What’s next for Nick Kyrgios” market has suggestions like becoming a motivational speaker ($7.00), an Anger Management Teacher ($34) or even $101 to run for Federal Parliament in his down time in Canberra.
“Lleyton Hewitt would be the easy choice for Kyrgios given their friendship, but Nick has said he needs to step out of his comfort zone if he’s going to get to where he wants to in the sport,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
