Tomljanovic promises ‘not fake’ Netflix series alongside Kyrgios

    Tomljanovic and fellow Aussie Nick Kyrgios are two of the main characters Netflix producers followed around the world in 2022 filming “Break Point”, a series similar to F1’s smash hit Drive to Survive.No topic was off limits during filming and while some F1 drivers like world champ Max Verstappen shut out Netflix producers due to sensationalised editing, Tomljanovic has no anxiety ahead of the January 13 launch.“I have seen a little bit of it already, I am not nervous,” Tomljanovic said.“I know what I filmed and everyone in the production has been so lovely and I think the message we are trying to send throughout, there is nothing to be scared of, it is just we are showing our lives in depth behind the scenes and hopefully people get more of an idea about what we do.“I think that this type of thing only works if you are really transparent and that is why when I was thinking whether I want to do this or not, it wasn’t an easy decision because I want to be real and I want to not fake it.“There is a little bit of fear about how you might come across and you are letting people in your circle and you are not used to that because for so long it has just been you and your team and we are all very tight knit.“I think it is really nice that players have been really open and on-board about filming.”Tomljanovic will launch her 2023 season on Friday when she spearheads Australia’s United Cup team alongside Alex de Minaur, Nick Kyrgios and Zoe Hives.Kyrgios and Hives will start the tournament on Thursday against Great Britain, with Tomljanovic and de Minaur to contest their singles matches the following day.After quarter-final results at Wimbledon and US Open last year, Tomljanovic is hopeful she can make a solid start to the 2023 season in Sydney and then break her Australian Open curse where she has never progressed beyond the second round.“I think it is one of those things in sport that just hasn’t been meant to be in a way,” she said.“I have had heartbreakers where I didn’t finish matches and didn’t stay tough in the nerve-racking moments against top players.“There is a little bit of luck of the draw and things have to come together for you.”De Minaur is coming off a strong year where he led Australia to the Davis Cup final last November and is confident he can keep riding the momentum to Melbourne where he reached the fourth round last season.“I am definitely ready, that is what it is all about for me, putting in the hard yards, all my training, all of my matches building up to that common goal,” de Minaur said.“I am looking forward to this year. I feel like I am, as always, in the best form I have been. “Ultimately throughout my career, I feel like I have been constantly improving and I feel way better this year than last year and that is how I felt last year as well.“I am not very far away from these top guys so maybe a bit of a leap to turn a couple of those tight matches around and then all of a sudden I am going to be up there with all of these guys.”
