NICK KYRGIOS broke his silence on Rafael Nadal handing him a walkover to the Wimbledon final – as girlfriend Costeen Hatzi called the achievement ‘insane’.
Kyrgios faces Novak Djokovic or Brit Cameron Norrie in Sunday’s showpiece after Nadal pulled out of Friday’s semi-final due to injury.
And in a loved-up Instagram exchange with Costeen, the Aussie bad boy write: “My baby what a ride it’s been. Why not one more?”
Costeen labelled the demon from Down Under a ‘warrior’ who ‘deserved’ his first ever place in a Grand Slam final.
The couple are understood to have got engaged earlier this year and the Sydney blogger regularly shares cosy pictures of them together on Instagram.
This time she posted: “Finals of Wimbledon. This is insane. I love you and we all can’t wait to see you out there with all our support@kingkyrgios.
