Nick Kyrgios risked peeing off his social media star girlfriend as he showed off his own urine sample.
The conversation was captured by Netflix cameras and broadcast in the new series Break Point. Kyrgios is the star of the first episode, which tennis bosses hope will have a similar effect to the Drive to Survive show which saw F1's popularity skyrocket.
The choice to feature the Aussie tennis star was an obvious one. Kyrgios has been the bad boy of the men's tennis world for years, but last year made headlines for the right reasons as he secured the first Grand Slam title of his career in the men's doubles at the Australian Open.

The 27-year-old was knocked out of the singles early but went all the way with partner Thanasi Kokkinakis. It was after their semi-final win in Melbourne that he had a chat with his girlfriend Costeen Hatzi after being called in by tournament officials for a routine drug test.
Netflix cameras captured the conversation over a video call, in which Kyrgios talked to his partner about the process. Even though he had delivered on the court just a few minutes earlier, he was clearly struggling to do the same off it as he revealed he was having trouble providing a urine sample.

"I've sculled two waters, one Pepsi, one juice. I'm trying," Kyrgios tells Hatzi before taking a giant swig of water, as if to prove a point. "Well, just do your best," she replies, prompting the tennis ace to turn the camera to show her the sample he had produced so far.
Immediately, Hatzi responds: "Ew, don't show me the pee," wearing a horrified look on her face. Kyrgios then replies: "I'm doing my best, I'll be there as soon as I can."
Though the episode is centred around Kyrgios himself, Hatzi gets a significant amount of screen time. In her first interview for the show, she reveals that they had only been together for around 10 weeks at the time.
"We met online and we've been hanging out every day since," the Instagram star explained. She added: "He's not as crazy as everyone thinks he is. I never really watched a tennis game in my life so this is all new for me."
