Nick Kyrgios cops $US113,000 fine for ‘disgusting’ on-court meltdown

Nick Kyrgios has been fined a whopping $US113,000 ($167,000) following his latest on-court outburst, this time at the Cincinnati Masters.

The Association of Tennis Professionals issued the 24-year-old with the long list of offences following his second round loss to Russian eighth seed Karen Khachanov.

During the match, the Aussie tennis player unleashed on umpire Fergus Murphy calling him a “f***ing tool bro” before appearing to spit towards him.

He also labelled the ref a “potato” and claimed he was the “worst ref in the world”.

This was followed by a toilet break, which saw Kyrgios destroy two racquets in the player’s tunnel before making his way back onto the court.

ESPN commentators described the outburst as “disgusting”, with reports he could still cop a suspension over the incident.

“The ATP is looking further into what happened during and immediately after the match to see if additional action is warranted under the Player Major Offense section of the code,” The ATP said in a statement.
