Kyrgios ‘banged’ by US media ahead of grand slam

AUSTRALIAN tennis hot head Nick Kyrgios is preparing for his first grand slam since his now infamous sledging incident.

The 20-year-old has been slapped with a 28-day suspended ban by the ATP for his mis-judged remark to French Open champion Stan Wawrinka and will need to toe the line for the next six months.

He was also fined almost $35,000 for “aggravated behaviour”.


The media is having a field day ahead of tomorrow’s start to the US Open in New York, with the unseeded Kyrgios to meet world No.3 Andy Murray in the first round.

The New York Post grabbed the tough match up with both hands, coming up with the headline: “Kyrgios gets what’s coming to him with impossible draw”.

Journalist Marc Berman went on to write: “Karma is a killer and tennis’ new bad boy Nick Kyrgios got banged in Thursday’s US Open draw”.
