HE'S the bad boy of tennis – but it seems Nick Kyrgios has finally met his match with girlfriend Costeen Hatzi.
The brunette stunner, 22, is proving to be a positive influence on the hot-headed Australian player, who dodged a conviction this week despite pleading guilty to assaulting his ex Chiari Passari in January 2021.
Wimbledon runner-up Kyrgios – currently on crutches following knee surgery – said he was "grateful" to the court for dismissing the charges, admitting he "wasn't in a good place" at the time and regrets his actions.
Kyrgios, 27, began dating blogger and influencer Costeen in late 2021, after they met online and quickly became inseparable.
Speaking in the Netflix documentary series Break Point, fellow Aussie Costeen admitted she'd never watched a game of tennis in her life before meeting Kyrgios.
She cheered him on at last year's Australian Open, where he was doubles champion with his best mate, Thanasi Kokkinakis.

Costeen said it was love at first sight for her and Kyrgios, who's "not as crazy as everyone thinks he is".
She graduated from Australian Catholic University in May 2021 with a bachelor of psychological sciences, but works as an online influencer and interior designer.
Kyrgios messaged her on Instagram after spotting an advert of her selling a mirror, and they started seeing each other after he turned up at her door to buy it.
The couple now live together in a plush £900,000 three-bedroom penthouse suite in Sydney.
