Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios has single-handedly raised over $10,000 for the victims of Australia’s bushfire crisis.
Earlier this year, Kyrgios called on Tennis Australia and the tennis world to rally behind the communities suffering from the devastating bushfires. The 24-year-old kicked off the fundraising challenge by promising to donate $200 per ace he scored.
Nick Kyrgios served the most aces at the ATP Cup, with 69.
“It’s all going to all the families, firefighters, animals, everyone who is losing homes, losing families … it’s a real thing. It’s bigger than tennis,” Kyrgios stressed when he announced his pledge.
