Nick Kyrgios joins Only Fans and promises to reveal ‘intimate side’ of his life
No, you didn’t read that headline wrong.
Tennis star Nick Kyrgios has announced that he is joining the Only Fans network.
This is the social media platform used by porn stars and minor celebrities to reveal parts of their private life that would have been reserved for their nearest and dearest in years gone by.
Yet it appears Kyrgios will not be displaying the most private parts of his relationship with his girlfriend Costeen Hatzi on his Only Fans page.
Instead, he has promised to give his fans a glimpse of life behind closed doors in his life, but it seems as if he will be fully clothed when he does so.
It just got a whole lot crazier… join me on onlyfans! It’s free to subscribe for everyone! Everything from behind the scenes to on court and everyday life. See you all there. Link in bio pic.twitter.com/QG0Jb0ducP

“Launching an OnlyFans was a no-brainer,” said Kyrgios.
“They are revolutionising social media and I wanted to be a part of that. Athletes can no longer just show up on the court or the field, we have to show up online too. I want to create, produce, direct and own content. That’s the future.
“I’ve been speaking to my fans directly for years and I know what they want to see.
“Of course, there’ll be tennis balls involved, tips, tricks and behind-the-scenes, but also they’ll get to see all different sides of me. Gaming, tattoos, my intimate side – it’s all on the table and I’ll be bringing fans along for the ride!”

The move from Kyrgios to launch another social media platform will fuel the belief that his days as a tennis player are over.
After reaching last year’s Wimbledon final, the Aussie maverick played just one competitive match in 2023 as he struggled with injuries.
He has stated his intention to come back to the game in 2024, but it remains to be seen if he is ready to make that step back on court.
“The stars need to align for me to get back out there,” he told the Tennis Channel last month.
“After last year, I had such a great year and I’m so hungry to get back out there.
“So I’m doing everything I can to get back out there. Obviously, you know how injuries are every day, just doing the rehab, doing the gym work. But to be here and being able to watch the match we’re about to watch (between Zverev and Daniil Medvedev) makes me more hungry to get out there.”
Australian Open chiefs have left the door open for their local hero to play on a wildcard at the opening Grand Slam of 2024, but they are waiting for news from the big-serving star.
“Nick is a day-by-day proposition at the moment. I think he said that himself,” said tournament director Cam Pearson.
“Hopefully he will share his January plans very soon. We’ve got a couple of wildcards left and selectors have a big decision.
“There are a number of Aussies that are vying for those two wildcards. If Nick is fit, he will certainly be one of them. ‘He’s coming back from some serious surgery and has to do what’s right for his preparation.”
It seems that Kyrgios will be getting a chance to see a lot more of big Nick in the coming months, but whether that will be on court is still an open question.
