This is not the first time the former junior tennis champion has used his profile to help others during a crisis. During the bushfires that recently swept through Australia, he offered to donate $200 (US$122) for every ace he served during the Australian Open Grand Slam in Melbourne. His efforts moved U.S. legend John McEnroe to donate a further $1,000 for each set Kyrgios won during the tournament. About $45,000 was generated, it also inspired others to donate, bringing the final total to over $90,000.
