– I was separated with my first girlfriend for six months. When you try to play at the highest level, you start to miss someone emotionally and physically. This becomes a sexual frustration. I’m on the court and I can’t play because I’m a little horny, if you know what I mean, he confessed.

– It doesn’t matter where you work. If you don’t see your significant other, it affects you, your job, your mood, everything … I was very emotional when I was away from my girlfriend for so long – he said.
Nick Kyrgios revealed that the constant trips worsened family ties. – A few years ago, my relationship with my family was not great because I traveled a lot and had no family around me. I was winning, losing, going through relationship problems, dealing with other problems and pushing them away because you feel the world is against you, the tennis player said. – I pushed away everyone who was close to me and quarreled with people. This is something I never want again, he added.
