Nick Kyrgios is one of the most controversial athletes in the current tennis landscape. However, this time the Australian tennis player has called the attention of his followers for something away from his behavior on the track: A solidarity campaign.
Kyrgios has communicated, through its Twitter account, that it will donate to those affected by the fires in Australia "$ 200 (€ 125) for each direct serve you score during the events you play this summer".
That is, the current 30th World will donate money for each 'ace' in the ATP Cup and the Australian Open, part of the Australian tour.
The tennis player 'aussie' will begin his career in the ATP Cup this Friday, when host Australia debuts against Germany (Group F). Many of his followers have applauded the tennis player's gesture: "This is the Kyrgios we want to see."
This is the Kyrgios we need to see more. Loving your work !!!

The ATP notice
Kyrgios is still under the constant gaze of the ATP. The tennis association notified the tennis player last September: he was forced to fulfill a series of conditions if you do not want to be penalized with an economic penalty of more than 22,000 euros and a period of 16 weeks without playing.
The ATP argued "aggravated behavior" after investigating what happened in Cincinnati. The Australian was then fined more than 100,000 euros for calling the referees "corrupt."
