The famed Fresh Prince of Bel-Air even striking up a bromance with Aussie tennis sensation Nick Kyrgios last Friday following his third round win – with Will even posting a selfie of the two.

‘This match last night was CRAZY!!’ actor Will captioned the snap.

It appeared Nick was a little starstruck himself, after his win over Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, the 22-year-old told the crowd of his affection for the star, even crediting him for the victory.
