The alleged carjacker of Nick Kyrgios' green Tesla has had his pre-trial hearing delayed in Australia for four weeks, according to Australian media. The man, who is 32 years old and not being named due to legal reasons, is currently in custody.
On August 15th, the 32-year-old man will be heard in ACT Magistrates Court in Canberra. On May 1st, Kyrgios wasn't home when a man came to his parents' home and threatened his mother Norlaila at gunpoint, demanding to be given the key to her son's Tesla.
After he was given the keys and explained how to drive, the carjacker left without injuring Kyrgios' mother. Kyrgios was then alerted and used his Tesla app to track down the car and slow it down. Around half an hour later, the carjacker was arrested.
The accused Kyrgios carjacker hit with five charges
Last month, it was reported that the accused Kyrgios carjacker pleaded not guilty to "aggravated robbery, driving a vehicle without consent, failing to stop for police, resisting a public official and driving while suspended." So far, Kyrgios hasn't publicly commented on the matter as the case is ongoing and he is probably waiting for the court to make its ruling.
Meanwhile, it has been a rough few months for Kyrgios. After missing the entire first part of the 2023 season, Kyrgios was also forced to withdraw from Wimbledon just before the start of the tournament. “Hey everyone, I’m really sad to say that I have to withdraw from Wimbledon this year.
I tried my hardest to be ready after my surgery and to be able to step on the Wimbledon courts again. During my comeback, I experienced some pain in my wrist during the week of Mallorca. As a precaution I had it scanned and it came back showing a torn ligament in my wrist.
I tried everything to be able to play and I am disappointed to say that I just didn’t have enough time to manage it before Wimbledon. I’ll be back, and as always, I appreciate the support from all my fans," Kyrgios announced on the eve of Wimbledon.
