Russian tennis star Anna Kalinskaya fuels rumours she is dating Australia's Nick Kyrgios with first Instagram post together

Anna Kalinskaya ramped up rumours over her relationship with Australian bad boy Nick Kyrgios by posting a photo of the pair at an LA Lakers basketball game in Los Angeles.

Kalinskaya, 21, and Kyrgios, 24, are pictured both wearing NBA Jerseys and appear to be holding hands in the photo, which the Russian World No 112 captioned: "Who is your favourite team?"

Kyrgios' compatriot Matt Reid, who is also a pro tennis player, commented: "soooo cute...must be nice."

Reid has previously uploaded his own post with the couple in Palm Springs last week in which Kyrgios can be seen with his arm around the Russian.

Speculations over the couple has been rife since September when the Australian shared a photo of them on his Instagram story with the caption "my face when I see you doing your thing today."

Kyrgios had previously been papped in the crowd during one of Kalinskaya's games at the Citi Open in Washington in August.

This ramped up when the Russian player performed an under arm serve during one of her games, attributing the tactic to the Australian player. 

"I think you know why I did it," Kalinskaya joked afterwards.

"Because I was watching Nick Kyrgios!"

Rumours of the all-star pairing then went into overdrive in February when Kyrgios was seen kissing the Russian player on the head while they ate Tacos in Mexico.

In February, Kalinskaya uploaded a snap of herself on the Red carpet dressed up for a Princess Mundo Imperial event in Acapulco.

Kyrgios wrote: "Only had 25 minutes to get ready as well"
