Nick Kyrgios offered a hand at home during his preparations for the clay season.

'Need A Hand?' Kyrgios Helps Push Broken Car Home

Aussie praised on social media for act of kindness

This wasn’t supposed to be part of Nick Kyrgios’ endurance training.

The Aussie offered help on Thursday to a woman whose car died on the side of the road in his hometown of Canberra. Simon Anderson, whose girlfriend was involved, chronicled the story on Twitter and it quickly went viral.

“She and a mate passed a woman whose car had died. The woman asked them to help her push it home, which they did. A car pulled up next to them and asked if they needed a hand, which after a few beers, they did,” he wrote. “Guy hops out the car to help and it’s Nick Kyrgios. So my girlfriend, her mate and Nick Kyrgios push this woman’s car home.

“Despite being on the way home from training and then helping push a car down a Canberra street, he takes a pic with them and then gets back in the car and goes home. Nick Kyrgios: good guy.”

Kyrgios was modest about his efforts as the thread picked up steam. He tweeted that “this sort of stuff shouldn’t be noticed, it’s an everyday thing, anytime.”

The reigning Acapulco champion will kick off his clay season next month at the Mutua Madrid Open.
