Nick Kyrgios recalls sexual frustration: On court and I can't play because I'm horny

Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios revealed a "sexual frustration" impacted his on-court performance early on in his career. At the beginning of his career, Kyrgios was spending a lot of time traveling around the world for tournaments and he was away from his girlfriend and family for months.

Kyrgios, a former world No. 13, admitted that being away from his girlfriend for a long time impacted his performance and overall mood. “With my first girlfriend, I was away from her for six months at a time,” Kyrgios said on the No Boundaries podcast, as quoted on News.com.au.

“When you’re trying to perform at the highest level, you start missing someone like emotionally, physically and it becomes a sexual frustration. “I’m on court and I can’t play because I’m a bit horny, if you know what I mean.

“It doesn’t matter if you’re in an office job … If you’re not seeing your significant other, it affects you, your work, your mood, everything. “I was the moodiest motherf***** when I was away from my missus for that long”.

Kyrgios admitted he found himself in a tough spot

“My relationship with my family wasn’t great a few years ago because I was always away and didn’t have my family around me,” Kyrgios said. “I was winning, losing, going through relationship problems, dealing with other problems and I was pushing them away because you feel like the world’s against you.

“I pushed everyone who was close to me away and I fell out with people and that’s something I’d never want again”. Kyrgios played a total of seven tournaments in 2021 but he has kicked off his preparation for the 2022 season as he is hoping to have a good Australian summer in January.

Kyrgios last played at the Laver Cup, before returning home to be with his mother who was dealing with some health issues at the time.
