Latest News About Nick Kyrgios
Nick Kyrgios reveals he ended up in a psychiatric ward during Wimbledon in 2019.
Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios has revealed he was in a psychiatric ward for suicidal thoughts following the incident at Wimbledon in 2019.
Mr Kyrgios’ comments, published in Australia on June 15 and based on interviews for the upcoming Netflix documentary series ‘Tipping Point’, are the latest in his long-running battle with mental health.
He went to a London hospital to “fix my problem” after losing to Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon four years ago, where he wore a compression sleeve over his right arm during a singles match to hide the scar.
“I was really thinking about suicide,” Mr Kyrgios said in comments reported by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
Almost without Nick’s sanity
– I lost at Wimbledon. I woke up, and my father was sitting on the bed crying loudly. It was a big wake-up call for me.”
“I was like, okay; I can’t keep doing this.” I ended up in a psychiatric ward in London to deal with my problems.” Mr Kyrgios said he was “drinking, doing drugs” and that his relationships with family and friends had deteriorated.
“The pressure of having all eyes on you, the expectations, I couldn’t handle it,” he said. “I hated the person I was.” Mr Kyrgios, who has previously spoken about his mental health issues on social media and in interviews, has spent months on the sidelines with injuries since reaching the 2022 Wimbledon final, which he lost to Novak Djokovic.
He returned to the elite tour this week in Stuttgart after a seven-month layoff but lost in the first round. In February, he apologized in an Australian court after avoiding a charge of common assault after pleading guilty to pushing his ex-girlfriend to the ground in 2021.
Mr Kyrgios’ psychologist, Sam Borenstein, said in a written report and affidavit that Mr Kyrgios suffered from severe episodes of depression during the attack and used alcohol and drugs to cope. Mr. Kyrgos’ mental health led to impulsive and reckless behavior.
The judge did not record a guilty verdict against Kyrgios for reasons including that the offense was low compared to common assault, was not premeditated and he had no criminal record.
Immediately after the court’s decision, Kyrgios released a statement through his management company: “I was not in a good place when this happened, and I reacted to a difficult situation in a way that I deeply regret. I know it wasn’t right, and I’m really sorry for the hurt I caused.” “Mental health is hard. Life can feel overwhelming,” she added in a statement. “But I’ve found that getting help and healing myself has helped me feel better.”
