Australian Open 2023: Nick Kyrgios’ backstage grope of girlfriend Costeen Hatzi caught on camera

Melbourne Park cameras don’t miss anything.

Nick Kyrgios should know that after his years on tour, but if he didn’t he sure does now.

Despite withdrawing from the Australian Open due to a knee injury, the Aussie continues to dominate social media.

Footage was uploaded to Twitter showing Kyrgios and girlfriend Costeen Hatzi walking around in the warm up area backstage when the Canberra native gets handsy with his partner.

The two are fooling around when the 27-year-old Kyrgios hugs her from behind before he fondles her chest.

Social media users were stunned by the footage.

“Why is he doing that in the middle of the hallway why is he even at the tournament?” one observer commented.

“Like the most annoying couple in a high school hallway,” another said. “Also get outta here. Why is he still here?”

Kyrgios pulled out of the Australian Open on the eve of his first round match with a knee injury, in a huge blow to the tournament.

He has experienced discomfort in his knee and an MRI showed a small tear in his lateral meniscus and a cyst.

Kyrgios will have arthroscopic surgery on his knee and hopes to be back on court in time play the Indian Wells tournament in California in March.

Kyrgios pulled out of the United Cup team event in late December because of an ankle injury, but it was hoped he had recovered enough to compete in the Australian Open.

He played Novak Djokovic in an exhibition match last week but said he “did not pull up great” from the shortened match.

“I’m devastated obviously, it’s my home tournament,” Kyrgios said.

“Barely had good night sleep last four or five nights, it’s just been throbbing.”

In his absence, Alexei Popyrin, Alex de Minaur and Thanasi Kokkinakis are the Australian men still alive in the singles draw.

Kokkinakis was left less than impressed when a reporter called him “Nick” following his first round win over Fabio Fognini.
