Australian tennis ace Kyrgios is huge fan of Hollywood heavyweight Will Smith. The actor, producer and comedian was courtside at the Australian Open to see Kyrgios topple Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 7-6 (7-5), 4-6, 7-6 (8-6), 7-6 (7-5) in a Grand Slam classic on Friday. And after the win, the Aussie revealed he's a huge fan of the American actor.

"No joke, he's my favourite actor. I get asked if one person were acting your life, I'd always pick him," said Kyrgios, 22. "It was surreal seeing him," said Kyrgios who later met Smith and even took a photo with him. About what they spoke, Kyrgios said: "He was really nice. He was really genuine. I told him, 'I watched a load of your movies a bunch of times.'"
