Brother reveals how Nick Kyrgios' family feels about Nick's verbal antics

Christos Kyrgios says the Kyrgios family and friends have no problems with Nick Kyrgios' antics as they are all good with acting as a "pressure valve" during the 27-year-old's matches. Kyrgios, 27, was caught yelling toward his box several times during the Wimbledon final.

Christos wasn't in Kyrgios' box during the Wimbledon final but his father, girlfriend and friends were. Kyrgios competed extremely well in the Wimbledon final but Novak Djokovic claimed a 4-6 6-3 6-4 7-6 (3) win.

"He wouldn't be our Nick if he wasn't fiery during the match, and that's how he plays, that's how he gets himself up," Christos Kyrgios said on Nine's Today show, per The Daily Mail Australia.

"He tries to increase his intensity and whatever else and that's how he does it, and that's what we know from him. The fight was there the whole match, the match was incredible."

Christos: We know Kyrgios loves us and we don't take it personally

Kyrgios was especially frustrated after dropping his service game late in the third set and falling two sets to one to Djokovic in the final.

"He tries to increase his intensity and whatever else and that's how he does it, and that's what we know from him. The fight was there the whole match, the match was incredible. And the pressure valve for him is 'look, these people love me, I'm not saying anything to offend or to abuse them, but I just need to release some of that pressure, deflect a bit of that pressure so I can get back down to focusing on what I'm doing' and we've said to him many times that if that helps you in that moment, if that helps you deal with all the adversity and pressure, then throw some of that. We're not going anywhere," Christos Kyrgios explained.
