Nill, Nick Kyrgios’s mother, has revealed that Aussie tennis champion Lleyton Hewitt will be mentoring her son leading up to the US Open.
Hewitt has committed to being by her sons side at the event — and lead-up tournaments.
“Lleyton was available and fortunately in a position where he’s just about to finish (his career). He wanted to mentor these boys because he’s been in their shoes before. I think it’s great for Nick to have him there.”
The US Open runs from August 31 to September 13.
