Nick Kyrgios is not afraid to take risks – whether that’s on the court or off the court. Kyrgios has become the first outside client of Evolve, a sports agency founded by Naomi Osaka and her agent Stuart Duguid.
Speaking of the partnership, Kyrgios said:
When I learned that Stuart and Naomi were starting an agency focused on supporting athletes like me, it made complete sense to join.
I have consistently tried to do things differently throughout my career and bring my entire personality to the game of tennis. I’m excited to work with Stuart and Naomi to continue building on what we’ve started and push the game of tennis forward.
Nick Kyrgios is one of the most controversial figures in tennis. He has racked up millions of dollars in fines for his on-court outbursts. He is also active online and is frequently engaged in fiery exchanges with fellow tennis stars.
Naomi Osaka said she’s thrilled to work with a star like Kyrgios.
Kyrgios embodies the types of athletes we want to work with at Evolve. He’s got an unmatched style, passion, and personality that is unlike any other in the sport. We have some big things in the pipeline for him that are very unique and pioneering.
Roger Federer, who was with IMG like Osaka, left with his agent Tony Godsick to start a sports agency Team8. Team8 has a few players on its roster and is the part-owner of the Laver Cup, a men’s indoor team tournament between Team Europe and Team World.
