Nick Kyrgios is an Australian tennis player who turned professional in 2013.
This year, Kyrgios has aced and shouted his way to the Wimblebon final, where he will face reigning champion Novak Djokovic in what is set to be an explosive match. If he wins, this will be Kyrgios’s first ever Grand Slam title.
In the quarter-finals, Kyrgios defeated the Chilean Cristian Garin in straight sets, with a tie break in the third.
He was due to play Nadal in the semi-final, but received a bye into the final after Nadal pulled out due to injury.
With a record £2,000,000 Wimbledon prize money up for grabs, many are curious about how much this divisive tennis star is worth.
As of 2022, Nick Kyrgios has an estimated net worth of $8 million (over £6,600,000), according to Celebrity Net Worth.
This is nearly all due to his tennis achievements, through which he has earned more that $7 million in prize money.
Playing in the age of the Nadal, Federer and Djokovic domination, it can be almost impossible for other tennis hopefuls to get a look in.
In many ways, it is Kyrgios's on-court behaviour, rather than his tennis prowess, that has made him a household name.
Now known as the ‘bad boy’ of tennis, Kyrgios causes a stir wherever he goes.
From shouting at line judges and umpires, to breaking clothing guidelines, the attention is often on anything but his tennis.
The six-foot four Australian started out playing basketball as a young teenager and it was not until he was 14 that he decided to focus solely on tennis.
At 16, Kyrgios obtained a full scholarship for the Australian Institute of Sport. It was around this time that he won his first (and only) junior grand slam title, at the 2011 Australian Open.
Kyrgios has won six ATP Tour Singles titles, and is currently ranked number 40 by the ATP. His career high came in 2016, when he was ranked number 13.
