Nick Kyrgios, the Australian tennis player, recently expressed his gratitude towards his long-time friend Andy Murray. As a friend, Murray had always supported Kyrgios when he was struggling with mental health issues and was self-harming during the tour.

During the 2019 Wimbledon, the Australian was already struggling with his issues, and that was portrayed in his matches as well. He openly thanked the former World No. 1 for standing by him through the tough times.
