Nick Kyrgios’ brother’s girlfriend Alicia Gowans turned heads during the first round of the Australian Open after the tennis bad boy ordered her ‘out of his box’.
The blonde beauty sat with her boyfriend Christos, alongside Kyrgios’ sister Halimah and father Giorgos, as the Canberra-native took on Portugal’s Frederico Ferreira on Monday night.
Kyrgios, currently ranked 47th in the world, beat Ferreira in straight sets but still managed to make headlines over a bizarre request early in the first set when he was down 2-0.
‘Tell your girlfriend out of my box,’ a fired up Kyrgios ordered.
Kyrgios was seen having a heated exchange with one of his managers afterwards, during the change of ends.

She also has her own website where she offers online coaching including ‘alpha coaching’, ‘competition prep coaching’, ‘mindset coaching’, ‘stage package coaching’ and ‘transformation lifestyle coaching’.
The fitness guru’s Instagram page is packed with impressive body transformations achieved by her clients.
‘So proud to share this beautiful client transformation. What a journey it’s been,’ she wrote alongside the latest transformation.
Ms Gowans, who has a young daughter, also shares happy snaps with her boyfriend, Christos.
One post read: ‘The best kind of relationship is the one where you feel totally comfortable around each other with no pressure to act a certain way.’

Kyrgios later clarified his comments on the court, insisting they were not directed at his brother or Ms Gowans.
‘I’m a nutcase when I’m on the court. It was just heat of the battle type stuff, you know,’ he said after the match.
‘Getting all those emotions out there again. You outlet at people you know have your back and you know that’s not going to change.
‘A lot of people can relate to outbursts. You just need to verbalise it and lash out at someone sometimes.
‘When I calmed down, I started playing some decent tennis.’

Kyrgios fought back to win the first set 6-4 and won the following sets by the same scoreline.
The fiery star has played just four matches since he bowed out in the fourth round of last year’s Australian Open against world number two Rafael Nadal.
He joins four fellow Australians who progressed to the second round on day one, including Bernard Tomic after his Japanese opponent Yuichi Sugita retired hurt while down 4-1 in the third set.
There was no sign of Kyrgios’ own girlfriend Chiara Passari at John Cain Arena on Monday evening.
Chiara Passari fuelled speculation the couple had split last week after she uploaded a cryptic Instagram post condemning ‘cheaters’.
The pair unfollowed each other on social media while Kyrgios appeared to have deleted multiple photos of the loved-up couple on his Instagram.
But the relationship is certainly back on after Kyrgios sent Ms Passari a subtle but romantic message on national television following his victory.

Tennis players traditionally sign their autograph on a television camera lens following a victory.
Instead, Kyrgios quickly scribbled a loving message to Ms Passari.
‘Miss u Chizzel,’ the message read, followed by a smiling emoji drawing.
He later shared an Instagram story of a late night video call with Ms Pissari from his hotel room.
‘My recovery for the night,’ he captioned the post, showing them both lounging in bed and speaking on video chat.
He has also followed his girlfriend on social media again with Ms Passari at the top of his following list on Instagram.
On Monday, he uploaded an Instagram story of a throwback photo of the couple first posted six months ago.
His Instagram bio has also been edited in recent days from ‘Shhh’ to ‘Do you’.
Kyrgios has also since replaced his Twitter profile photo with a loved up image of the couple.
