He has homes in Canberra, ACT, Sydney, New South Wales, and Nassau in The Bahamas.

Kyrgios is also known as a “trash talker” when playing tennis, that’s why he had received more than 5 times for abusive on-court behavior - a record that no tennis player ever had in ATP history.

He is also known for the exaggerated display of smashing his racquet and being involved in verbal altercations with umpires.

Personal Life

Kyrgios was born in Canberra, Australia with his parents and his two siblings. He is a Greek Orthodox Christian.

Before he considered professional tennis, Kyrgios was a basketball player in his early teens. He showed full interest to learn tennis when he was 14 years old and was eventually granted a scholarship at the Australian Institute of Sport.

In 2023, he pled guilty to assaulting an ex-girlfriend by pushing her to the ground a few years back. That same year, he also featured in a robbery when his Tesla was stolen.

In 2012, he became World Number 3 in the junior rankings and moved to World Number 1 after winning against Wayne Montgomery in 2013.

Playing Style

Kyrgios is an aggressive tennis player and is known for his assertive drive.

One of his most noticeable styles is the electric-serving underarm serve, which is rarely seen in professional players.

In 2019, he rose to prominence when he used the underarm serve successfully against Rafael Nadal and followed up against Dusan Lajovic.
