“Whether it be work, family, personal, continue to stay on the right path. I’m always sending my strength to YOU,” Kyrgios, who is currently ranked 56th in singles, wrote.

The burly Canberra lad, who came out with his struggles with depression and announced a break from tennis last year, said unlike what most people think, his victories on court come second to putting smiles on people’s faces.

“So many people think that my victories are on the tennis court, but my biggest victory is making sure that I can spread the word and continue to make people realize how beautiful this world is (emoji), BE HAPPY, this can all be taken away in an instant,” Kyrgios wrote.
