In one of these interviews, record Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic (36) said to him: “I hope we see you on the court with a racket again soon.” But that probably won’t happen.

In his column for Australian newspaper The Age, Kyrgios wrote: “I sat down with my agent Stuart Duguid to discuss my future. The reality is that part of me knows that my time in the sport may be over. And I’m okay with that.”

Boom! Kyrgios wants to quit! Besides many injuries, the main reason is that Kyrgios discovered his second passion besides tennis: “I could travel around the world and make really good money commentating on sports and doing things like I do now on my talk show.”

He is sure: “The players on the tour would like to do that too, but they think differently. They don’t have the global reach that I do. Otherwise they would do it too. Her whole world revolves around playing tennis, and that’s never been me.”

Kyrgios’ biggest success was the 2022 Wimbledon final, which he lost to Djokovic. The former number 13 confidently: “I know that I am one of the best in the world and that I can win big tournaments – if my body allows it. The fire still burns, but it’s not my everything.”

Nevertheless, he wants to leave easily. On Instagram he denied rumors of an immediate resignation: “That’s absolute nonsense! I’ll definitely be back.” However, his wrist injury still has to heal. Kyrgios: “I hope to recover in time for Wimbledon and the US Open. However, I can guarantee one thing: I will not make myself available for the Olympics.”

Not because of poor health, but because of disputes with the Australian Olympic Committee. “Excluding myself from the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro was a disgrace. I was number 13 at the time and had a real chance of winning a medal. I just can’t forget that. And let’s be honest, I didn’t necessarily feel like Australia wanted me to represent them either.”

His final sentence: “Sport is entertainment and I think I put on a show. But at some point the curtain has to close.” Hopefully he will stay in tennis, in whatever capacity.
