Australian Open men’s doubles champion Nick Kyrgios has posted a gushing tribute to his girlfriend after he rushed to embrace her following his grand slam win.

The Australian tennis star won Saturday night’s final with Thanasi Kokkinakis against locals Matthew Ebden and Max Purcell in Melbourne.

Kyrgios, 26, was captured on camera greeting Costeen Hatzi, 21, with an on-court kiss after his win, which he followed up with a social media post.

Kyrgios shared a photo to his Instagram stories of himself and his partner together in a bathroom, with Hatzi brushing her teeth.

“Only way I’m celebrating,” Kyrgios wrote on the photo.

Hatzi, a Sydney blogger, shared the video of herself and Kyrgios embracing on the tennis court on her own Instagram account.

“I love you so much and I am extremely proud of you. What an achievement, there’s no one else more deserving than you.” she wrote in the caption.

Kyrgios and Hatzi have regularly shared photos of themselves together after going public with their relationship last month.

Hatzi has been by the tennis star’s side during the Australian Open tournament.
