Tennis: Nick Kyrgios to donate $ 200 ace – Sports News: Tennis

The world of tennis is mobilizing for the victims of fires in Australia, after a call to that effect from Nick Kyrgios. “Come on @TennisAustralia! We can surely organize an exhibition before the @ AustralianOpen to raise funds for the victims of the fires, “tweeted the 24-year-old, best known for his blood shots on the courts, which resulted in a suspension of 16 suspended week.

In the process, his Federation boss Craig Tiley announced the organization of “a number of fundraisers and support operations during the ATP Cup, the Australian Open (January 20 – February 2 ) and other events in the coming weeks ”. Since the start of the fires, at least 18 people have died in Australia and thousands more have had to evacuate their homes in the face of rising flames.

Nick Kyrgios said Thursday that he would pay $ 200 ace for every game he plays in the Australian summer. His compatriot Alex de Minaur decided to imitate him by increasing the bet a little. “I’m up for $ 250 ace just because I don’t think I will hit as much as you do,” he wrote on Twitter. Their colleague John Millman has also committed $ 100 per ace.
