Nick Kyrgios has revealed he ended his self-imposed French Open exile all in the name of love.

Lucky thing! Nick Krygios has gifted his 21-year-old girlfriend Costeen Hatzi a $15,900 Cartier Love bracelet - a day after hinting the couple have a serious future

The Greek Aussie star has made no secret of his displeasure for the red clay of Paris and is once again skipping the year's second grand slam in 2022.

Nonetheless, the 26-year-old says his girlfriend Costeen Hatzi has helped persuade him to return for the French grand slam in 2023.

Speaking to tennis reporter Blair Henley, the Aussie revealed that Hatzi's desire to see Paris was a huge reason for his decision.

“Next year I am going to go to Paris. I’m announcing that now, I’m going to the French Open,” Kyrgios told tennis reporter and host Blair Henley.

“I haven’t played that in four years so I’ll be back next year.

“My girlfriend just wants to see Paris. I mean, I’ll play the French Open as well.”

Kyrgios hasn't played on his least favourite surface at Roland Garros since being knocked out of the second round by South African Kevin Anderson in 2017, meaning it will be six years by the time he returns in 2023.

When asked why he opted to miss this year's French Open - beginning next month - the Aussie said he'd already made plans with Hatzi to return home to spend time with family in Australia.

“We already decided to go home and have that time. We’re just working towards that. Time at home’s crucial because they next trip is for three months and the time at home is so valuable,” Kyrgios said.

“Especially being from Australia, you get homesick very quickly, and we’re both very family-orientated, so we have to make sure that season remains tight.”
