Nick Kyrgios and Stan Wawrinka nearly came to blows in Montreal last summer after Kyrgios' crude comment about Donna Vekic, Wawrinka's girlfriend, and Thanasi Kokkinakis.

Can the former feuding rivals keep the holiday peace and coexist as IPTL teammates?

We're about to find out.

Wawrinka will join Kyrgios on the Singapore Slammers roster this week. The controversial Kyrgios has pledged to support the two-time Grand Slam champion in the aftermath of their dust-up in Montreal.

"We haven't obviously talked at all," said Kyrgios. "I think whatever has happened has happened. I think we've got one goal, he's a great player and he's obviously going to be the main guy for our team, so I'm going to do everything I can, whether that's me being on the bench, you know doing whatever I can to warm him up or whatever.

"Here, I think we all want to win and hopefully we can put everything aside and just do that."

Kyrgios was later fined for his lewd comments in Montreal. Wawrinka was livid after learning of Kyrgios' comments and voiced his outrage on Twitter.

It will be interesting to see how the rivals interact as teammates.

Wawrinka replaces Andy Murray on the Slammers roster.

Here's Murray and Kyrgios discussing their own unique bond as teammates, including Murray's smiling summary of Kyrgios, "Nick's box office."
