"This is for anyone who struggles with motivation, struggles with what their purpose is, for those who have days when you don’t want to get out of bed, ITS OK," Kyrgios posted. "I’ve been to places that I’m not proud of, people telling me all the time, ‘waste of talent’ ‘disappointment’.

"Dealt with disgusting racism, got told by people close to me they have lost hope."

Kyrgios urged fans going through tough times to take a moment, press pause and even reach out to him if they need help.

"I know what it feels like when you think no one is understanding the struggles that are in your head," Kyrgios said. "I’m telling you right now, everything will be ok, enjoy this beautiful life in front of you, do what makes YOU happy. Don’t take this opportunity for granted. Feel free to reach out to me if you are feeling lost, or like you can’t go to anyone. IM HERE for you."

The 25-year-old Aussie posted a photo from the Citi Open captioned with an anecdote from his junior days he shared at a Washington, D.C. press conference.

"I was an overweight child. My coaches and teachers told me it wouldn't be very good," Kyrgios said. "People can't tell you you can't do anything, I feel like I'm proving a lot of people wrong."
