Wimbledon quarter-finalist Nick Kyrgios to appear on Australian court A hearing with the 27-year-old tennis pro is scheduled for August 2, according to the appointment list of the District Court in Canberra.
According to the Canberra Times, lawyer Jason Moffett, who is representing Australian Kyrgios as legal counsel, told the newspaper: “The nature of the allegations are serious and Mr Kyrgios is taking the allegations very seriously.” Accordingly, this was a “domestic relationship related” incident, as Moffet put it.
A statement from Johannessen, the law firm working for Kyrgios, said the allegations had not been defended or confirmed by lawyers or the tennis player. The court also did not find the allegations to be true, so Kyrgios will not be seen as an accused. Tennis Pro will comment on all allegations.
Kyrgios has been noticed several times in the past for his rude behavior on the tennis court. Recently, his third round match against Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas at Wimbledon caused quite a stir. Kyrgios called on the umpires and asked umpire Damien Dumusois “Are you stupid?” He called him a “disgrace” and repeatedly used abusive language. With a total of $14,000, the 27-year-old is the most fined player in the tournament to date.
The ATP, the players’ union, confirmed they were aware of the court case. Due to the ongoing process, he would not comment further on the matter. Kyrgios will meet Chile’s Christian Karin in the Wimbledon quarterfinals.
