Australian Open champion Stan Wawrinka as Japanese racquet manufacturer Yonex’s highest paid player.

Regardless of how the 19-year-old fares against world No.1 Rafael Nadal on Tuesday night, he is set to benefit from vastly upgraded deals with Yonex and clothing giant Nike.

Kyrgios’ manager John Morris confirmed a host of potential sponsors had made approaches after the Canberra teenager gatecrashed the All England Club’s fourth round.

“People are knocking on the door, commercially it’s (Wimbledon) been great for him,” Morris said.

“This puts him in the shop window massively with the brand of tennis he’s been playing.

“Yonex have offered five-six times what his current deal is.


“In those terms, it’s gone through the roof. Likewise with Nike.

“And there are other companies looking to come to the table as well.

“I wouldn’t want to give figures, but competitors are testing the water to see what their (Yonex and Nike’s) resolve is.

“The fact of the matter is that Nick loves the brands he’s with. They’ve supported him for a long time.

“As long as there is that level of respect there, then there will be loyalty from Nick.

“He’s a loyal guy, he’s very, very grounded, as you know.”

With a guaranteed prizemoney cheque of almost $220,000, Krygios’ unforgettable Wimbledon debut is likely to trigger million-dollar benefits.

Industry insiders claim the upgraded Yonex deal would place Kyrgios above world No.3 Wawrinka.

Aren't the mods planning on doing something about this constant spammage by OP?

Past Stan already? That's quite a fast jump. I was happy when I learned that Janowicz was finally able to afford 3 meals a day, and I'm happy for Nick. Jerzy seemed to step off the gas pedal when the money started rolling in and Nick's countryman Tomug's become an unashamed and irredeemable hedonist. The truth is that most people need to be kept hungry in order to keep achieving. Like Sinatra and Uncle say: "nice 'n easy does it every time."
