Kyrgios shows his good side for bushfire victims

Australian tennis ratbag, Nick Kyrgios has made a great suggestion to Tennis Australia to aid our bushfire victims, ahead of Friday's start of the ATP Cup.

In a tweet posted last night, Kyrgios begged Tennis Australia to hold a charity match to help those affected by the devastating fires.

Many of his teammates supported his idea too.

And it looks like Tennis Australia is onboard.

Kyrgios, who in the past has raised a few eyebrows with his pre-match preparations at the pub, revealed how he spent his New Year's Eve. β€œI had a couple of frothies last night, I am feeling good,” he said.

This inaugural ATP Cup kicks off the 2020 season of Tennis and will see teams from 24 countries around the world, each consisting of five players, competing for a $15 million prize purse over 10 days. It starts tomorrow in Brisbane.
