Suspicion of assault: tennis bully Kyrgios has to go to court

At the Wimbledon tournament, Nick Kyrgios drew attention to himself with his magnificent tennis and his angry temper. In his homeland, the 27-year-old Australian is now threatened with trouble with the judiciary. He is summoned to appear in court "in connection with a private relationship".

Tennis madman Nick Kyrgios is threatened with trouble with the judiciary in his Australian homeland on suspicion of a physical assault. A day before the 27-year-old's quarterfinal match at the Grand Slam tournament in Wimbledon on Wednesday against Chilean Cristian Garin, his lawyers confirmed a court summons for their prominent client.

The police authority in the Australian capital Canberra had previously announced investigations against Kyrgios. Accordingly, "a 27-year-old after an incident in December 2021" should appear before the metropolitan magistrate's court. "It is related to a private relationship," said Kyrgios' lawyer Jason Moffett, adding, "The nature of the allegations is very serious and Mr. Kyrgios takes the allegations very seriously."

Shortly after Moffett's statement, his colleague Pierre Johannessen, who is also responsible for safeguarding Kyrgios' interests, clarified the legal status of his client. "At this stage, the allegations are not considered facts by the court and Mr Kyrgios will not be considered a criminal offense pending his first appearance," he explained.

Kyrgios let his temperament run wild last Saturday in the game against the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, thereby confirming his reputation as a "bad boy" in the tennis scene. In total, he has already accumulated a fine of 14,000 dollars at Wimbledon.

For the second time in his career after 2014, he is now back in the last eight at Wimbledon. At that time, Kyrgios had beaten the Spaniard Rafael Nadal as a teenager, but then did not meet the great expectations. Also because he suffered from depression, as he announced in February. At the time he was drinking and using drugs. This season he has stabilized his performance and is a threat to the greatest in tennis. Nadal could wait again in the semifinals, Kyrgios has not forgotten the memorable success eight years ago. "That was in the back of my mind today," he said after reaching the quarter-finals.
