Stefanos Tsitsipas and Nick Kyrgios have been fined after a heated third-round duel at Wimbledon. Greek Tsitsipas, who angrily kicked a ball into the crowd, has to pay $10,000 (€9,600). Winner Kyrgios was fined $4,000 for foul language. This was announced by the tournament organizer.
Australian Kyrgios won the duel on Saturday 6:7 (2:7), 6:4, 6:3, 7:6 (9:7), and both players were warned about it.
The 27-year-old Kyrgios has been by himself from the start, clamoring around the linemen and shouting across the field. After losing the second set, Tsitsipas (23) threw the ball into the crowd’s frustration – and received a warning for it. Kyrgios asked for more, called the referee, when no further decision was made, he continued to complain. Tsitsipas reacted furiously and brutally hit some balls on Kyrios’ body when he was on the net.
Tennis “bad boy” Kyrgios has already been fined $10,000 for unsportsmanlike behavior during his first-round match.
