Nick Kyrgios has been given 28-day suspension and fined $25,000 by ATP professionals who allegedly made coarse remarks on Wawrinka’s girlfriend.

This incident took place at Rogers cup last week where Kyrgios crossed his limit and uttered those words. Later many Tennis professionals went hard at the 20-year-old Aussie.

Although Kyrgios apologised after that punishment, Switzerland’s French Open champion Wawrinka called for action to be taken.

 If Kyrgios can avoid fines for any verbal or physical abuse at ATP-sanctioned events OR doesn’t accumulate above $5K in fines for any other offences at ATP events, the Aussie will see his punishment dismissed. Kyrgios has until February, 24 to clear himself.

“This incident was egregious and reflected poorly on our sport,” said Gayle David Bradshaw, the ATP’s executive vice president of rules and competition. “Nick has expressed regret, and the best result would be that he learns a lesson from this incident and that he understands he is responsible to the tour and to fellow players for both his actions and his words.”
