Nick Kyrgios, the Australian tennis ace, is famous for his outspoken behavior. He doesn’t believe in keeping his feeling to himself and is quite fearless, both on and off the court. This nature has brought him several problems. However, he still embraces it and is transparent about his takes on different matters.

Currently, the Aussie is dating Sydney-based fashion influencer Costeen Hatzi. They made their relationship public last year in December and the 21-year-old has been a regular in his matches since then. In fact, after Kyrgios‘ Wimbledon run, the couple took off to the Bahamas together for an exotic vacation.

The ATP Finals mayhem

The 2022 Wimbledon Championships runner-up failed to qualify for the Nitto ATP Finals this season. He only took part in the Japan Open after his quarterfinals run in the American Grand Slam and unfortunately fell prey to a knee injury just before the quarterfinals. Thus, he lost crucial points that would have helped him to enter the singles event of the ATP Finals.

However, if Kyrgios had won his Wimbledon final just like the champion Novak Djokovic, he would have, for sure, secured a position in both categories of the tournament. As it didn’t happen, the former World No.13 had to settle for a place in the doubles category. He teamed up with his fellow Australian Open doubles champion, Thanasi Kokkinakis. However, the Aussie duo failed to make it to the semifinals after they lost two of their three round-robin matches in Turin, Italy.
