Family over Estoril for Nick Kyrgios

Just two weeks ago, Nick Kyrgios spent quality time with his grandfather battling cancer back home in Canberra, Australia.

Sadly, Christos Kyrgios has passed away.


Kyrgios had been in the U.S. spending his 22nd birthday with girlfriend Ajla Tomljanovic. He withdrew from the tournament in Estoril, Portugal to fly home for his Papou’s funeral on Tuesday. 

“Always supporting, always knew the score, what was going on and even knew that Federer was the GOAT. Fly high CK,” Kyrgios wrote on Facebook.
