Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios has said he does not see himself playing for another five years, while speaking during the UTS Tour in Los Angeles.

Kyrgios has been limited to just one match in 2023 – a first round loss to China’s Yibing Wu in Stuttgart in June. The Australian struggled with a knee injury earlier in the season and suffered a wrist injury as he attempted to comeback during the grass season.

“The schedule is out of control, bro!! I’m getting old. 28. But with all the drinking and partying I’m 57,” Kyrgios said in Los Angeles last weekend. “33 is insane. I’m not playing till I’m 33. Once I’m gone, you’ll never see me again.”

The 2022 Wimbledon runner-up once again reiterated his desire to become a coach once his playing days are over, saying he could see himself coaching Frances Tiafoe. ‘I think I might just coach. Coach Foe (Tiafoe) full-time. That would be sick!!”.

Kyrgios remains on the entry list for the ATP event in Washington next week, but it remains to be seen whether the Australian will play there.

In other Kyrgios news, the Australian is in the process of getting another tattoo – this time on his back – as he revealed to his fans on social media.
