Nick Kyrgios Fined An Additional $2500; Could Face Three Year Suspension

So upon hearing that Nick Kyrgios was getting fined $10,000 from the ATP. It is now known that he was fined an additional $2500 dollars for an additional comment he made during his match against Stan Wawrinka. The comment he made which cost him another $2500 was, “He’s banging an 18-year-old.” After the match, the Swiss was so heated that he confronted the Aussie post-match and were separated by ATP personnel and others. Per Arash Madani’s sources, it was said Wawrinka was so heated post-match, it was good others were there to separate them.

Even more additional news was out on Kyrgios saying that he could face a $100,000 fine and could be given a three-year suspension by the ATP World Tour. They opened up an investigation on Kyrgios, and he was given a note that he was being given a “notice of investigation”. The ATP said in an e-mail that if Kyrgios is found guilty of aggravated behavior or “conduct contrary to the integrity to the game” then he could be fined $100,000 and banned from the ATP from ATP tournaments for up to three years.

Aussie still on good terms with Tennis Australia and still eligible for US Open should suspension uphold

Wally Masur, Australia’s Davis Cup captain, has come out and said that Kyrgios’ Davis Cup spot will not be in jeopardy despite another slip-up. The federation, Tennis Australia, think that just the fine is enough for Kyrgios. Should they ATP come to terms with a suspension, Kyrgios will still be available for all Davis Cup events and Grand Slam events since they are considered ITF events. That also means he will be eligible to play on the Challenger Tour. Despite all the controversy, it is highly unlikely he will get suspended for any amount of time, let alone three years.
