Another day, another “drama” for Nick Kyrgios that received a £13,766 fine for unsportsmanlike conduct in two matches
The Australian was on fire during his match against Felix Auger Aliassime that he eventually lost in the decider.
As usual, the Australian couldn’t hold his frustration during the encounter against the 18-year-old.
In the opening set, Kyrgios accused a line judge of “rigging the game” mocking the umpire before threating to leave the court. In the second set, the 24-year-old hit a ball off the stadium.
However, Nick received the fine also for his questionable behavior in the first match when he lost his cool after failing to convert a set point in the opening set. The Australian was convinced that his opponent committed a double fault in that occasion to comment
“It couldn’t have been further out. What are you doing? The ball was this far out on the second serve. I’m going.
I’m not going to give 100% when I’ve got linesmen rigging the game; I don’t want to play.“
This is not the first time that Kyrgios was penalized at this tournament after was fined £13,000 last year for making a vulgar gesture with a water bottle.
After this week, Kyrgios will go down 4 places in the rankings to be no.43. The impression is that Kyrgios is slowly fading away…
