In the brand new trailer, Kyrgios, 27,  laments over feelings of ‘pressure’ to be the best in the business. 

‘The expectation for me to be the next big thing is massive,’ he says.

The camera cuts to a disappointed Kyrgios as he sits in a change room with his head in his hands, before an explosive moment on-court at the Australian Open.

Kyrgios smashes his racquet on the ground, an incident that isn’t uncommon for the moody sports star.

Other scenes show him getting cosy with his incredibly supportive girlfriend Costeen Hatzi, before he’s seen chest-bumping his doubles partner and best friend, Thanasi Kokkinakis.

The first episode will chart Kyrgios and Kokkinakis’ incredible run to the Australian Open doubles title.

‘A little Netflix series and s**t,’ he says. ‘Let’s get it, baby!’

Buoyed by the success of their fly-on-the-wall series, Formula One, the same production team has followed 15 of tennis’ brightest stars through the ATP and WTA tours over the past season.

Kyrgios’ bitter rival, Stefanos Tsitsipas, also features in the series alongside several big names like women’s world No 1 Iga Swiatek, men’s No 3 Casper Ruud and Felix Auger-Aliassime, alongside women’s No 2 Ons Jabeur.

The series will also feature interviews with tennis legends such as Martina Navratilova, Maria Sharapova and Chris Evert.

Surprisingly, neither Rafael Nadal nor Novak Djokovic appear in the new program, with the streaming giant aiming to chart a ‘changing of the guard’ in tennis.
