NICK KYRGIOS is planning to play next year’s French Open – because his girlfriend wants to see the delights of Paris.
The Australian, 27, intends to take his partner up the Eiffel Tower as he ends a six-year absence from the French capital.

Kyrgios has long talked about his hatred for playing on clay and he has willingly skipped this section of the ATP Tour calendar.
But his 21-year-old missus Costeen Hatzi – he regularly posts images of her on social media – fancies a trip to the City of Love.
Kyrgios, who lost to Novak Djokovic in the 2022 Wimbledon final, said: “My girlfriend wants to know Paris, so I’m going to play at Roland Garros 2023.
“It will be good for me to earn some more money, although I would have preferred to stay at home.
“I know I can do great results on clay.
“I beat Roger (Federer), (Stan) Wawrinka, I played a final in Estoril.
“My girl wants to get to know the city so I will have to go this year.
“I’ve said it many times and I’m saying it again now.

“There are too many clay-court tournaments on the calendar.
“I see guys in the top-100 that I don’t even know, I wouldn’t recognise them if I crossed them on the street, and they’re there only because of the clay tournaments. I think it’s crazy.”
