The Australian is rarely far from the news, and even in just the past week he's been accused of 'bullying' by no.5 seed Stefanos Tsitsipas, argued furiously with an umpire, admitted he spat at a spectator, and been ordered to appear in court amid allegations he assaulted an ex-girlfriend.
However, he's also a player described by no less than John McEnroe as "the most talented player [he's] seen in the last ten years." Now ranked no.40 in the world, he's never reached the semi-final of a Grand Slam — but could this be his year?
In his way stands Chile's Cristian Garin, ranked just below him at 43. Garin has never before been beyond the 4th round at a Slam, so this is new ground for him already. A match with Kyrgios is also new ground, as these two have never played each other before.
This one is clearly tough to call, but you can find out who makes it through to the semi-final by watching the Cristian Garin vs Nick Kyrgios live stream.

How to watch the Cristian Garin vs Nick Kyrgios live stream from anywhere with a VPN
A VPN, or virtual private network, makes it look as if you're surfing the web from your home country, rather than the one you're in. That means you can access the streaming services you already pay for, from anywhere on Earth. Or anywhere that has an internet connection, at least.
For instance, a Brit who's currently in the U.S. could watch the Cristian Garin vs Nick Kyrgios live stream on BBC iPlayer (opens in new tab), even though they're not in the U.K.
They're totally legal, inexpensive and easy to use. We've tested lots of the best VPN services and our favorite right now is ExpressVPN (opens in new tab). It's fast, works on loads of devices and even offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.
Safety, speed and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) our favorite VPN service. It's also compatible with loads of devices and there's a 30-day money-back guarantee if you want to try it out.
Using a VPN is incredibly simple.
1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) is our favorite.
2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.S. and want to view a U.K. service, you'd select U.K. from the list.
3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to BBC iPlayer and watch the tennis.
How to watch the Cristian Garin vs Nick Kyrgios live stream in the US
The Cristian Garin vs Nick Kyrgios live stream will be shown on either ESPN or ESPN Plus as part of its extensive coverage from the All England Lawn Tennis Club. We say either, because ESPN hasn't revealed exactly which matches will air where, but it should definitely be on one or the other.
Our pick of these would be Sling TV: the Sling Orange package costs just $35 per month and comes with more than 30 channels including ESPN3. Plus, right now Sling is offering 50% off the first month (opens in new tab).
As well as being available through your cable service, you can also stream the action via the ESPN app, or on the Watch section of ESPN's website. However, you'll need to authenticate with your satellite, cable or live TV provider credentials to watch any sessions.
ESPN Plus, meanwhile, is available via the ESPN website and many of the best streaming devices. It's also a very well-priced service as these things go, with a subscription costing just $6.99 per month or $69.99 per year.
And remember, if you're usually based in the U.S. but aren't there at the moment, you can still watch the services you already subscribe to via a VPN such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab).
Sling TV (opens in new tab) offers two packages, both of which cost $35 a month. The Sling Orange option comes with 30-plus channels, including ESPN.
If you love sports, you might want to check out Fubo.TV (opens in new tab). It's got dozens of sports channels, including ESPN, and offers a 7-day free trial.

How to watch the Cristian Garin vs Nick Kyrgios live stream in Australia
Aussies will be able to watch the Cristian Garin vs Nick Kyrgios live stream on Channel Nine or on its on-demand service 9Now (opens in new tab).
That's great news wherever you are, because 9Now is available for free; all you need is an Australian postcode. That means Australians who aren't in the country right now will simply need to sign up to a VPN such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) in order to watch all the action as if they were back home.
However, 9Now won't have every single match. While big ties such as the Cristian Garin vs Nick Kyrgios live stream will be on the service, to be sure of watching every Wimbledon 2022 match, ad-free and in up to 4K resolution, you'll want a subscription to Stan Sport (opens in new tab).
Stan can be accessed via a wide variety of devices including many smart TVs, iOS and Android phones, Chromecast, Apple TV and more — plus it costs a very reasonable $20 AUD per month ($10 for a standard subscription and $10 for the Sport add-on). A 30-day FREE trial (opens in new tab) gives you a taste of the platform — and the good news is that the Sport add-on also has a 7-day FREE trial.
You'll need to pay extra to access HD or 4K streams and to increase the number of devices you watch on, but even if you go for the full-fat Premium sub with the Sport add-on, you'd still only be looking at $29/month.
As well as the Wimbledon live streams, Stan also has Champions League 21/22 live streams, Champions League soccer coverage and a huge amount of live rugby.
