Kyrgios opens on his dark period

“No one knows what I’ve gone through.

All the struggles I’ve overcome. I have self-harmed, was having dark thoughts about life. I always have my back and have all the confidence in the world. I lean on my loved ones,” Kyrgios revealed. Kyrgios admitted that he is privileged and that the real pressure are the real-world problems.

“We work to play in the best stadiums in the world in front of full crowds, no matter what sport," Kyrgios said. “Real pressure is real-world problems, paying bills, providing for family, and making sure everyone is healthy.

Putting on a show is fun." Kyrgios' dark period is behind him as he is now feeling comfortable in hiw own skin. "I feel like I've definitely had a rough, you know, some up and downs with the Australian public," Kyrgios said in his interview with ABC's 7.30.

"But to be honest, I look at myself in the mirror every day, and I know that I'm comfortable in my own skin. "I don't really care if I don't win a grand slam one day or I don't want to be like Roger Federer or something like that.

"But now, I honestly don't care how I'm perceived because I know deep down, and the people around me know, that I'm a caring person. I'm always myself."
