Nick Kyrgios drinks alcohol at Cincinnati 2019

The pressure of a huge fine and an on court meltdown doesn’t seem to have effected Nick Kyrgios too badly as he’s pictured enjoying a low-carb alcoholic drink whilst watching his close friend Andy Murray play doubles at the Cincinnati Open


Nick Kyrgios may be the talk of tennis after another high profile on court incident in which he verbally abused the umpire and then spat at him but it doesn’t seem to have dampened the Australian’s mood.

Yesterday Kyrgios decided to have a drink whilst he supported his long time ATP Tour mate Andy Murray during the Scot’s doubles with Feliciano Lopez at the Cincinnati Masters.

Kyrgios was pictured drinking a can of White Claw which is an alcoholic ‘hard-seltzer’ drink popular with athletes because of its low carbohydrate ingredients which means it’s not as fattening as other alcoholic drinks like beer and lager.
