Nick Kyrgios’ girlfriend Costeen Hatzi is his number one fan

Nick Kyrgios is preparing for one of the biggest match of his career as he goes head-to-head against Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon Men’s Singles final. 

The Australian tennis ace, 27, who is viewed by his supporters as a loveable rogue and by critics as an tyrant, has had a bumpy road to Centre Court. 

His early matches against Britain’s Paul Jubb and Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas were the subject of huge controversy, and he was gifted a place in the final after Rafael Nadal pulled out of their semi-final match. 

Then it emerged he has been ordered to appear in court over a common assault allegation made by his ex-girlfriend, the model Chiara Passari.

Yet through this tumultuous run at the All England Club, Kyrgios has had the unwavering support of his girlfriend Costeen Hatzi.

The 22-year-old psychology student has been at every one of her boyfriend’s games since the start of the year and is a familiar face at SW19, cheering from the stands and waiting patiently by the side of the court during training sessions. 

The loved-up couple, who went public with their relationship in December 2019, have packed on the PDA and have been spotted kissing, holding hands and embracing over the last two weeks. 

Kyrgios and Costeen have teased fans by suggesting they are engaged. Although Costeen is occasionally seen with a gold band on her ring finger, no other details have been shared. 

The influencer, who has 97,000 followers on social media, made it clear that she was not shaken by the assault allegations made against her boyfriend, stepping out with him in the hours after the claims first emerged.

Kyrgios is facing allegations he assaulted his ex-girlfriend, model Chiara Passari, in an incident last year and will appear in court in his hometown of Canberra on August 2. The charge carries a maximum sentence of two years in prison. 

Kyrgios had an on-off relationship with Chiara before meeting brunette beauty Costeen. 

The couple live together in the inner-Sydney suburb of Zetland and frequently share gushing posts to each other on social media. 

After it emerged that Kyrgios would play in the Wimbledon final, Costeen wrote: ‘Finals of Wimbledon. This is insane. I love you and we all can’t wait to see you out there with all our support.

‘When you have the right people around you, anything is possible.’

Kyrgios shared his girlfriend’s post on his own Instagram, and added: ‘My baby, what a ride it’s been. Why not one more? I love you.’

It comes after eagle-eyed tennis fans noticed the VIP pass Ms Hatzi was wearing to Wimbledon listed her as a ‘player’s trainer’.

This detail rankled Kyrgios’ many critics because Ms Hatzi, an aspiring social media influencer, is not a qualified trainer and has never played at a professional level.

Of course, while she is not a trainer in a traditional sense, there is no doubt Ms Hatzi is playing a crucial role in her boyfriend’s career at the moment.

Ms Hatzi, who has watched every one of Kyrgios' games since the Australian Open, said it was amazing to see what the 27-year-old could accomplish 'with the right people' supporting him

Kyrgios himself has credited her with helping him stay focused on his game, calling her his ‘greatest blessing’, and insiders say she has been instrumental in turning his life around after a tumultuous few years.

Kyrgios isn’t afraid to declare his love for his brunette girlfriend, writing in a birthday post: ‘My beautiful Costeen, the most amazing person I’ve ever met. You’ve been the biggest blessing in my life and I’m so incredibly thankful that I get to call you my best friend. 

‘No matter what we do, I always get excited because I know that we are going to make every little moment enjoyable. There is nothing I love more than being able to make you laugh and seeing that amazing smile of yours. 

‘I’m so incredibly proud of how far we have come, and now to say we have a home together. I cannot wait for all our adventures, big or small, or around the world.’

Nick Kyrgios faces court summons over abuse allegations 

The tennis star, 27, who plays his next match at Wimbledon today, is facing allegations he assaulted his ex-girlfriend, model Chiara Passari, pictured, in an incident in 2021 and will appear in court in his native Canberra on August 2

Kyrgios is facing allegations he assaulted his ex-girlfriend, model Chiara Passari, in an incident last year and will appear in court in his hometown of Canberra on August 2. The charge carries a maximum sentence of two years in prison. 

Initial reports stated the charge came after Kyrgios allegedly grabbed Ms Passari in December 2021. 

However, ACT Police confirmed to Daily Mail Australia that the alleged incident was only reported in December. It is said to have occurred months earlier. 

Ms Passari, who was allegedly pushed by Kyrgios, commented to say she had nothing to do with the charges only emerging this week as Kyrgios prepared for Wimbledon quarter-final.

A police statement released on Tuesday afternoon read: ‘ACT Policing can confirm a 27-year-old Watson man is scheduled to face the ACT Magistrates Court on the 2nd of August in relation to one charge of common assault following an incident in December 2021.’

Kyrgios’s barrister Jason Moffett, from Key Chambers, told The Canberra Times his client was aware of the allegations, which were ‘in the context of a domestic relationship’.

‘The nature of the allegation is serious, and Mr Kyrgios takes the allegation very seriously.

‘Given the matter is before the court… he doesn’t have a comment at this stage, but in the fullness of time we’ll issue a media release.’

Late on Tuesday night, Kyrgios’ legal team released a statement denying the tennis star had been charged.

‘At the present time, the allegations are not considered as fact by the Court, and Mr Kyrgios is not considered charged with an offence until the First Appearance,’ the statement said.

‘It may be misleading to the public to describe the Summons in any other manner than a formal direction to appear to face allegations, the precise nature of which is neither certain at this moment nor confirmed by either the Prosecution or Mr Kyrgios.’
