Although Nick Kyrgios hasn’t always tolerated Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, the Australian ‘bad boy’ was grateful for their presence and for Roger Federer, who put on a great show alongside him, at the Rally for Relief charity tennis event held in Melbourne to help Australia overcome the tough situation caused by the bushfire crisis.
“I am just so happy that we had Roger, Novak, Rafa, some of the greatest to get behind everywhere around the world. I think we do everything we possibly can to overcome this together”. Kyrgios said about the top three’s presence at the charity event.
Let’s not forget about the fact that Kyrgios accused Nadal for his slow tactics and roasted Djokovic for his “sick obsession” of wanting to be liked in the summer of 2019 during an interview for No Challenges Remaining podcast.
However, the bad boy has settled down. Kyrgios has been one of the most prominent players in terms of raising money for the bushfire relief efforts as he said he will donate $200 for every ace hit during the Australian summer.
Nick has shared his feelings about everything that goes on to raise money for the disaster left behind by the bush fires. “It’s been an emotional couple of weeks. I was playing so hard. I just wanted to send the message”.
Nick said. Everything started on Twitter, where the controversial Aussie announced he will kick-off the support for the victims by donating $200 for every ace he hits. “I just had dinner and I wrote a tweet. That was an opportunity to use my platform and then the whole Aussie team got behind it, obviously.
I woke up the next day and kind of exploded. It was so much. Back home, when I was in Canberra, I couldn’t even go outside. It was emotional”. , Nick said at the end of the Rally For Relief event. Besides Nick Kyrgios, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, the Rally For Relief event featured Serena Williams, Naomi Osaka, Caroline Wozniacki, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Alexander Zverev and other great names.
