Nick Kyrgios experienced a very scary situation earlier this year when a man stole his Tesla car at gunpoint after his mother handed him the keys to the car.
It all happened in the early hours of the morning when Kyrgios' mother opened the door after knocking with a man standing there with a gun. He demanded that she handed over the keys to the green Tesla that was parked in front which she did. She ran back into the house and locked the door when the man entered the car with police later tracking him down and arresting him.
The man in question was a 32-year-old who pleaded not guilty to all five charges against him. He was charged with aggravated robbery, driving a stolen vehicle, furious driving, and failing to stop for police. The man remained in custody and will appear before a court on July 18th. Kyrgios' mother was visibly shaken from the incident as her son helped police after the robbery took place.

He used the Tesla app to track the coordinates of the car and relayed the information back to the police while also using the app to limit the speed of the car. Eventually, police were able to track down the car to a Canberra suburb where they arrested the man. The vehicle in question was returned to Kyrgios with minor damage sustained during the arrest.
It's been a tricky time for Kyrgios who has been back home in Australia rehabbing an injury sustained at this year's Australian Open. His return to tennis is imminent however a recent story on Instagram saw him describe himself as 'not feeling himself' which got some fans worried. Being back on grass should be a boost for him as he plays his best tennis on that surface traditionally.
