Nick Kyrgios fined for swearing in front of Prince george

It’s not the only fine he managed to pick up at the tournament

Nick Kyrgios has been fined for his behaviour in the Wimbledon final on Sunday – which included him swearing in front of the royal box.

Appearing in his first Grand Slam final, Kyrgios eventually fell to defeat against Novak Djokovic.

But as has become the norm for Kyrgios matches, it wasn’t without incident or explosive behaviour.

The world number 40 managed to take the first set in just 31 minutes, playing his trademark brand of lightning tennis involving searing aces and booming shots that were simply too much for Djokovic to handle.

But as the tide turned and the Serb took the second set, Kyrgios’ temperament began to fray.

This involved him ranting and shouting to both himself and his team, whilst also audibly swearing in front of the royal box in which the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their son Prince George were sitting.

For this, the Australian was fined $4,000, the Mirror reports.

It’s not his first Wimbledon fine this year. Earlier in the tournament, he was handed a $10,000 fine for spitting in the direction of a spectator after his first round win over Paul Jubb.

Also in the final, Kyrgios asked for a woman in the crowd to be removed after alleging that she was talking to him and distracting him whilst he was preparing to serve.

When he pointed the woman out to the umpire, he described her as “the one who looks like she’s had about 700 drinks.”

The woman has since claimed that she only had two drinks during the match.

She told the Telegraph that she simply wanted to show her support for Kyrgios as she suffers from depression, something she knew Kyrgios has also battled with over the years.

After the match, Kyrgios was asked by Sue Barker if his maiden Grand Slam final had given him the motivation to reach more.

He replied: “Absolutely not, I am so tired honestly. I definitely need a well-earned vacation after this one.”

The 27-year-old later said he was “not supposed to be here,” and that it was “ridiculous” that he had managed to make it to the final.

He added: “I’m a kid from Canberra. I just feel ridiculous to be here talking as a Wimbledon finalist. This is just the example, like, anything’s possible really.

“Someone like me is able to go out there and give Novak Djokovic, keep him out there for three hours in a Wimbledon final, it’s pretty cool.”

Next month, he will appear in court in his hometown where he has been charged with domestic assault.

Kyrgios is accused of grabbing his then-girlfriend Chiari Passari during a dispute.

In a statement, Australian Capital Territory Police said: “ACT Policing can confirm a 27-year-old Watson man is scheduled to face the ACT Magistrates Court on the 2nd of August in relation to one charge of common assault following an incident in December 2021.”
