After an incredibly emotional duel at the lawn classic in Wimbledon, both Nick Kyrgios and Stefanos Tsitsipas are asked to pay. Australian Kyrgios has been fined $4,000 (€3,840) for foul language. Tsitsipas, in turn, was fined $10,000 for unsportsmanlike conduct. This was announced by the organizers of the tennis tournament on Sunday evening.
In the end, Nick Kyrgios won 6:7(2),6:4,6:3,7:6(7). There were warnings on both sides on Saturday. The Australian demanded a disqualification from his opponent when he hit a ball on the stands. In addition, Tsitsipas was warned when he tried to hit a return on Kyrgios and hit the scoreboard.
Kyrgios is generally not a child of sadness. He proved that this time too. The Australian took on the referee. He asked the referee: “Are you stupid?”. Kyrgios used several swear words. He is the highest-financed player of this tournament to date, with a total of $14,000. Kyrgios received a fine in the first round after spitting on a spectator in the match against the British Paul Jubb.
