Nick Kyrgios has been called out by his neighbour over his ‘entitled’ parking habits.
The neighbour claimed the Australian tennis star’s distinctive, lime green Tesla Model X car was parked ‘almost nightly’ in a marked car share zone in the Sydney suburb of Zetland.
While the neighbour did not mention Kyrgios by name, she implied he was the culprit behind the parking saga when she turned to a local Facebook group for help in resolving the issue.
Kyrgios was confirmed as the culprit after his girlfriend’s sister hit back on the Facebook post jumping to his defence.
‘Looking for some advice here, it’s a tricky one, we have a car share allocated spot right out the front of our apartment building,’ the neighbour wrote.

‘Recently a very well known famous and quite notorious tennis player has decided that he is somehow entitled to park in it with his own vehicle.
‘I don’t want to name and shame the guy but he’s very famous and parks in this car share space almost nightly, meaning that anybody that has a Go Get or Car Next Door vehicle has no option to park there, as you can see the other night our friends had to park their Car Next Door vehicle illegally behind him as he had parked his car in the dedicated car share space?’
The neighbour asked locals on what they believed was the ‘right thing to do’.
‘Should I just let this guy go because he’s an elite athlete?’ the neighbour asked.
‘Not that a $400 fines (sic) going to impact his bank account by any means, but it’s more based on principle and setting a good example.
‘Especially when car share is all about minimising pollution, traffic and congestion.
‘No doubt I’ll get a few trolls on here but I just thought it a reasonable question to put forward on this group.’

A comment from Kyrgios’ partner Costeen Hatzi’s sister, Mary Hatzi, confirmed Kyrgios was the culprit.
‘Hey all, to be fair, he didn’t realise it was a car share spot,’ she commented.
‘He parked there to allow other car spots for those who can’t find parking in the area.
‘Nick understands and will move his car. Thank you for all your kind messages.
However, not everyone was out to shame Kyrgios.
‘WOW a lot of angry vicious people in Zetland. There are any number of people parking illegally in the area. Don’t see this kind of vitriol directed at them?’ one person wrote.
