Over the last few years, people have had varying opinions over Nick Kyrgios, but one thing they all agree upon is that “the Aussie is an entertainer with both his on and off field antics”. The ‘bad boy’ of tennis undoubtedly has an exceptional talent for the game, but has arguably been overshadowed by his other actions than his tennis performances.
The Aussie is currently playing at the Australian Open in front of his home crowd and would look to finally materialize his talent into a good Grand Slam performance. The 26-year-old, currently ranked World No.115, has started the new season well with his comprehensive 6-4,6-4,6-3 victory over Liam Broady in the first round of the tour. The performance reflected the scoreline, as Kyrgios hit 21 aces to Broady’s 6 and was sensational in his service having an 81% record on service while Liam could manage only 63%.
Girlfriend Costeen Hatzi attends Kyrgios’ first round match
Nick Kyrgios was marred in a massive controversy at the back end of last year as was accused of sexually assaulting and even cheating on his then-girlfriend Chiara Passari. After a long controversy including multiple screenshots being shared, the couple finally broke up.
In January, the Aussie made public his relationship with Costeen Hatzi through an Instagram post. Hatzi runs a business called Casa Amor Interiors, which focuses on minimalist home décor. The Sydney-based blogger was in attendance at Kyrgios’ dominating first-round performance at the Rod Laver Arena. The 21-year-old was spotted in the stalls next to a friend as she cheered on her boyfriend, who was playing an always-exciting game just meters away.
Despite their relatively short relationship as of now, the duo seems to enjoy a strong bond with each other, being inseparable and travelling together in the wake of the Australian Open. They even tested positive for Covid-19 together.
Unlike other famous and high-profile players who like to keep their personal and dating life private, Kyrgios showed that their relationship is an open book as the couple were seen sharing a sweet kiss midway through a practice session. Both of them also keep updating about their time spent together on social media.
