Nick Kyrgios is now a triple threat career contributor.
The 28-year-old Kyrgios is a tennis star, Tennis Channel analyst and now an OnlyFans content creator.
Kyrgios announced he’s signed a deal to join video subscription brand OnlyFans, known for its exclusive adult content from stars.
The 2022 Wimbledon finalist calls his OnlyFans career path a “no brainer” saying professional athletes build brands that transcend performance on court.
“Launching an OnlyFans was a no-brainer,” Kyrgios said in a statement. “They are revolutionizing social media and I wanted to be a part of that. Athletes can no longer just show up on the court or the field, we have to show up online too.
“I want to create, produce, direct and own content. That’s the future. I’ve been speaking to my fans directly for years and I know what they want to see.”
Kyrgios, who received positive response for his work as a Tennis Channel analyst during the network’s coverage of last month’s ATP Finals, will join Ashley Harkleroad, who made history as the first tennis player to grace the cover of Playboy in 2008, and Sofya Zhuk among tennis stars on the OnlyFans platform.
The UK-based OnlyFans says it takes 20 percent of user fees, while content creators like Kyrgios receive 80 percent of fees from monthly user subscriptions.
The 2022 Australian Open doubles champion Kyrgios, who appears unlikely to play next month’s Australian Open, said he will produce tennis tips, gaming advice and “my intimate side” on his OnlyFans page.
“Of course, there’ll be tennis balls involved, tips, tricks and behind the scenes, but also they’ll get to see all different sides of me,” Kyrgios said. “Gaming, tattoos, my intimate side – it’s all on the table and I’ll be bringing fans along for the ride!”
Celebrities on OnlyFans charge fans a subscription fee for access to their pages. Bella Thorne, Cardi B, Tyga and Denise Richards are among the most popular OnlyFans celebrity pages.
