Although controversial, Kyrgios has also cashed a RECORD number of fines for a tennis player.
Kyrgios amazingly revealed that he has picked up nearly A$800 (£452,000) in fines during his tennis career.
And that makes him the highest-paid player in the history of the sport, ahead of all his peers.
He said: “All the fines I get go to charity. This is for everyone.
“So every time we get a fine, they say, ‘It goes to charity.’ I said, ‘I don’t know why you’re saying that.’
“I probably should have in my entire career – man, I’ve been hit by some big ones.
“But I don’t think it was fair all along, to be honest. But I’d say I’d be close to 800 grand I guess.”
