Nick Kyrgios and girlfriend Costeen Hatzi have endured a rough return to Australia following his remarkable run to the Wimbledon final.

Kyrgios became the first Australian man to play in a Wimbledon final since Mark Philippoussis in 2003, going down to Novak Djokovic in four sets.

The Australian star left Wimbledon with his head held high after an extraordinary two weeks in which he finally seemed to live up to his lofty potential.

However his return home to Australia didn't exactly do to plan, with girlfriend Costeen documenting their miserable airport ordeal on social media.

Costeen posted a number of photos on her Instagram story on Wednesday, showing the couple lying on the floor in Toronto Airport in Canada.

“The reality of delayed flights & lost luggage..." she wrote.

One of the photos showed Kyrgios asleep with his head on a backpack as a pillow.

The couple might have been nursing sore heads after they were spotted partying the night away in the aftermath of the Wimbledon final.

On Sunday night, Kyrgios hit the Dolce nightclub in ritzy High St, Kensington, accompanied by girlfriend Costeen, sister Halimah and the rest of his entourage.

Costeen shared a number of photos and videos of the celebrations, showing Halimah flaunting expensive bottles of vodka and tequila.

In one video, Kyrgios could be seen wearing the same red cap he infamously wore during the trophy presentation after the Wimbledon final.

The red hat was a clear breach of Wimbledon's strict all-white dress code, with some labelling Kyrgios' actions 'disrespectful' and an 'insult' to the All England Club's traditions.

Kyrgios will now spend some well-earned time with family and friends at home in Canberra before the hardcourt swing and US Open.

While shattered at an opportunity lost at Wimbledon, the 27-year-old said he hoped he could depart his beloved grass-court grand slam with head held high.

"I feel like I've committed a fair bit these two weeks," he said.

"What more can I do, to be honest? I've stayed in most of the time. I've tried to just get good sleep, eat well. Not even have a beer here or there.

"I've really tried to commit. My practices I've really tried to focus, tried to work on things.

"Like, I've committed. I've committed everything I can commit these two weeks and I just came up short. I was taught that's all right, even though it sucks. Of course it sucks."

The mercurial Aussie said the challenge ahead is sustaining focus and motivation.

"I know I've been able to beat these players before. There were other things I couldn't figure out along the way," he said.

"It takes a hell of an athlete mentally and physically to win one of these things. I think eight people have won this title since I've been born.

"It shows physically one thing, obviously it shows. Mentally it's another beast.

"To come back here for two weeks in a row, no one understands it. It's just different.

"Like the social media, the things you have to deal with. For me, it hasn't been easy the last three or four days to block everything out on socials, just everything, and try and just find the balance.

"It's so easy to access all that stuff. I've really tried to make a conscious effort of trying to focus on the task on hand."
