Before Kyrgios goes to Denmark, he will first have to appear in some other exhibitions.

Recently, Kyrgios announced his participation at the Diriyah Tennis Cup, Saudi Arabia. The Diriyah Tennis Cup will be taking place in Riyadh, between 08-10 December. “At the end of my outstanding season 2022 I’m excited to play at the Diriyah Tennis Cup.

I’m looking forward to getting to know the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and especially to having fun with the other players and showing the fans some really entertaining tennis,” Kyrgios said. Kyrgios is set to highlight the Diriyah Tennis Cup as the tournament organizers are hoping to host a memorable edition.

"As the host of international tennis stars, the Kingdom continues to show its excellence in hosting international sports events, which has made it home to various sports, including this event – in which international stars will participate – that we are happy to organize.

The 2019 Diriyah Tennis Cup achieved great success which attracted thousands of fans from the Kingdom and abroad, and in this edition, we look forward to continuing these accomplishments and watching great competitive games in historic Diriyah, in the presence of fans of tennis, a sport that is highly popular in the Kingdom," Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al-Faisal, sports minister and chair of the Diriyah Season Committee said.
