Divisive Aussie Kyrgios is the focal point for the opening episode which shows off a side of him we’ve never seen before.

But it was one act during last year’s Australian Open that left his girlfriend Costeen Hatzi reeling in disgust.

After his singles campaign came to an end at the hands of Daniil Medvedev, Kyrgios and Thanasi Kokkinakis took the tournament by storm as they teamed up in doubles and stormed their way to Grand Slam glory.

But after their rousing semi-final victory in straight sets against the three seeds, Kyrgios was pulled aside for a random drug test.

That’s when the issues began.

Hatzi was left explaining what was unfolding to the camera crews as she stood outside the players gym waiting for her boyfriend to emerge.

“They’re just doing a urine test,” Hatzi said. “He’s like 30ml under, so he has to keep drinking water.”

The two are then seen on the phone together via FaceTime with the Aussie star slamming back drinks to try and up his fluids.

“You need to just scull the water,” Hatzi says.

Kyrgios responds: “I’m trying baby. I’ve sculled two waters, one pepsi, one juice. I’m trying.”

But it’s then that Kyrgios leaves her horrified as he flips his camera around to show off his urine sample which is below the required amount.

Hatzi couldn’t believe what she’d been shown as she exclaimed: “Ew, don’t show me the pee!”

Kyrgios responded: “I’m doing my best, I’ll be there as soon as I can.”

Hatzi hangs up the phone before turning to the camera and signing off with: “Yeah, he definitely needs to drink more water, because it wasn’t looking too good.”

The series showed when life changed for Kyrgios with his manager revealing the jarring lengths he previously had to go to.

In an emotional conversation with his partner, Kyrgios admits those early years changed his outlook on the game.

“The first four or five years of my career was just so chaotic,” an emotional Kyrgios says to Hatzi.

“When Horse (manager Daniel Horsfall) was on tour with me, when it was basically just him looking after me, he could just see my wellbeing just declining every week. My life was spiralling out of control – drinking every single night. I was like, ‘I can’t keep doing this. I have to be kinder to myself’.

“For my mental health, I could never be one of those players again that plays all year round. I couldn’t do that. I value my family, my close, close friends and Cossie too much to put tennis in front of that any more. I don’t think that’s healthy.

“I don’t really have expectations now in my matches any more. I just want to go out there, have fun, take the pressure off, and then we can try and live a more normal life. It’s much better like this, that’s for sure.”

Kyrgios’ manager and longtime friend Horsfall reveals the jarring lengths he had to go through to track him down.

“I used to have your location on my phone,” Horsfall says.

“On some mornings, I would physically have to go and find where you were. What hotel you were staying at, whose house you were staying at. Before tournaments … before a match.”
