It’s the life and times of tennis bad boy Nick Kyrgios!

Known as Australia’s tennis “bad boy”, Nick Kyrgios is a staple name in the world of tennis. With his unconventional playing style, constant battles with authority and a knack for showing off his boorish behaviour and uncontrollable temper mid-game, Nick is a the poster boy that continues to make headlines in sport whether he’s winning, losing or anything in-between.
