Seven-time ATP Tour singles winner Nick Kyrgios has come a long since 2014 when he announced himself to the world.

The 27-year-old Australian tennis star has been making a name for himself in the sport with great victories and his peak years are clearly ahead of him.

He is one of the athletes with encouraging endorsements and has made millions of dollars off his talent as a tennis player.

In a recent interview, Kyrgios explained why he was opting to play in both the doubles and the singles at the Japan Open. His reason was simple: for the money.

“Tennis is stressful as hell in singles, you try to hold yourself in such high accountability every single time,” said Kyrgios, as quoted by Euro Sport.

“You could be out here for three hours and it’s exhausting and so serious. Playing doubles with Thanasi brings that fun element back. But at the same time, it is my job. I need to make money and that is how I do it, so I play both events.”

He’s honest about why he plays tennis, but what do his finances look like after almost a decade in the sport?
