Nick Kyrgios on the robbery of his mother: "It's been a tough day"

In recent days, Nick Kyrgios has been the protagonist, despite him, of a misadventure, which fortunately ended in good order. Although not directly, the former Wimbledon finalist experienced moments of fear on the morning of May 1 in Canberra (Australia).

It was the mother who was involved, who, according to local media, saw a man break into her son's home around 8:30. The criminal threatened his mother with a gun, demanding the keys to Nick's Tesla Model X, asking, among other things, for clarifications on how he drove.

Fortunately, however, the technology inserted in his car came to the tennis player's rescue. As soon as the thief left the house, Kyrgios' mother immediately notified her son, who promptly first called the police, and then, via the Tesla management app, set a speed limit for the car.

In this way, the reports report, the police managed to stop the 32-year-old from fleeing after a short chase. The criminal threatened her mother with a gun, demanding the keys to Nick's Tesla Model X, asking, among other things, for clarifications on how he drove.

The time of the arrest of the offender, accused of aggravated robbery, failure to detain the police request, driving a vehicle without a license and resisting a public official, was declared around 9:05, just 35 minutes after his entry into the house.

The Australian tennis player said, through a story on Instagram, that he was so shocked by the incident that he had difficulty falling asleep these evenings. However, he thanked all of his fans for offering their support after the robbery came to light.

"The last couple of days have been rough... haven't slept much and struggled a bit. Appreciate all the support," wrote Nick. Meanwhile, Nick Kyrgios has yet to make his official debut this season. The 28-year-old will start again from grass, where he has always been the protagonist of great performances, last of all the last edition of the Wimbledon tournament, where he went as far as the final lost against Novak Djokovic.

The number 26 in the world will return to the field in the ATP 250 in Stuttgart, where he has already confirmed his presence.
