Aussie tennis maverick Nick Kyrgios loves a good smash – whether it's on or off the court.
The 27-year-old advanced to the semi-final of Wimbledon after sweeping past Cristian Garin in three sets on Wednesday and is being strongly tipped to make the final with his next opponent, Rafa Nadal, struggling with an abdominal injury.
Despite once blaming a string of poor performances on "being horny", Kyrgios admitted a few years ago that he loves getting 'a few strokes' in before a big match – so expect him to arrive on Centre Court fully 'warmed up' tomorrow.

There's an unwritten rule in tennis that you should abstain from sex before a match, though it's one notorious rule-breaker Kyrgios has no interest in following.
"I don’t abide by that rule," he told GQ Australia in 2015. "I don’t abide by that at all."
The cocky Australian added that while he gets "plenty of girls", he tends to avoid bonking any of his fellow players because news "travels fast".
"I won’t say any [names], but mate, a lot goes on. What happens on tour gets around fast, so you have to be careful. That’s why I don’t mess with any tennis chicks," he insisted.
