He talked about his previous style statement when he used to wear headbands and bandana around his head.
Nick said, “I used to wear a lot of headbands… but I kind of can’t play with anything on my head these days… but I think, if I had my way on court I would wear some pretty cool stuff.”
If given a chance, he would like to wear his own gear on the court. It might be a little difficult with all the sponsorship deals but the fans would love to experience Kyrgios’ own gear on the court.
“Tennis needs new fans… they’ve had the same fans for decades now…. They need fans to turn on the TV that have never watched tennis before and be like ‘wow,’ look what that guy is wearing or look at how he’s playing the game. I think that’s what it needs.”
Kyrgios Wants To Face Roger Federer In His Own Fashion Gear

He said, “If I played Federer again, I would love to choose my own wardrobe. When people watching on TV, like Federer, you already know that he’s clean cut, he’s very classy and then you’d have me on the other side of the net… I’d be wearing things that are a little bit more different.”
Nick did not play any warm-up tournaments like the Sydney Tennis Classic before the Australian Open because of Covid.
