‘Haha so after all this, all the media, the press saying how bad I am for the sport, disrespecting the game and a pure villain, I’m going to be the number 1 episode on Netflix… to grow our fan base , basically trying to put tennis back on the map,’ Kyrgios tweeted.

‘And essentially putting more money in the pockets of everyone involved in tennis, you’re all really ridiculous right now. Your apology must be as strong as your disrespect.’

Kyrgios has reportedly signed a juicy deal with Netflix to star in the series Break Point, produced by the same producers of the wildly popular series Drive To Survive.

Players expected to feature in the series include Novak Djokovic, Serena Williams, Carlos Alcaraz and Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Drive to Survive is credited with giving F1 a huge boost in popularity and tennis is hoping that Break Point will have a similar effect on their sport.

The first episode will cover the Aussie star at the 2022 Australian Open, including his win with Thanasi Kokkinakis in the men’s doubles draw.

Meanwhile, Kyrigos’ Aussie compatriots will progress to the inaugural United Cup on Thursday after his last-minute withdrawal.

Co-captain Sam Stosur revealed at Wednesday’s press conference that they ‘literally only found out 10 minutes ago’ that Kyrgios had pulled out.

As a result, Alex de Minaur moves into the No.1 men’s position for Team Australia, with Jason Kubler promoted to the No.2 spot.

The event will mark the first time Kyrgios has played for his country in a team event in three years. Kyrgios has sat out the Davis Cup since 2019 and skipped the Tokyo Olympics in 2021.
