Nick Kyrgios’ sister Halimah claims the tennis star will never change when she debuts on The Voice

Nick Kyrgios’ sister Halimah says the tennis star bad boy ‘suffers from a lot of anxiety and pressure’ – after the budding singer overwhelmed judges on The Voice Australia

Halimah Kyrgios claims that her tennis star brother Nick Kyrgios will not change his ways, nor should he be expected to do so.

The 31-year-old, who recently rose to fame during her blind audition for The Voice Australia and received a standing ovation from the judges, comes to defend her brother.

‘Life is too short. Sometimes he suffers a lot from the pressure. It’s a very tough industry and you’re basically hotel hopping for a whole year. You have to be tough on the tennis tour,” Halimah said in an interview with the Herald Sun.

The singer says her family’s main focus is on whether Nick, 26, is “enjoying herself.”

‘I always ask his agent: how was his attitude today, was he positive, how did he play? I think if it’s your brother, even a sibling, it feels like it’s you too,” she continued.

Based in Hong Kong, Hamilah works in dance and musical theater, but she recently made headlines after taking a shot at Seven’s The Voice.

Hamilah left the judges completely speechless after a powerful rendition of Tina Arena’s single Chains.

She now longs for a spot in the semifinals and admits she was initially shocked by her rapid progress on the show.

“That was a real shock for me to get through. The other two singers were just amazing in their own right, so it came down to what (coach Rita Ora) was looking for on the day.”

She went on to secure a spot in Rita Ora’s top five, and Hamilah says the sessions with the British singer were “fun” and claims she helps “strip” her vocals to where it’s “really raw”.

Hamilah’s big moment at the blind audition was watched by her brother via Zoom from Canberra.

After Voice host Sonia Kruger said Hamilah was “amazing,” Nick proudly responded: “She always is.”
