Nick Kyrgios fined £12,200 for spectacular US Open meltdown after smashing three rackets and launching bottle on court | The Sun

NAUGHTY Nick Kyrgios received a £12,200 fine for his outrageous outburst in his US Open exit.

The Australian smashed three rackets, swore repeatedly and received an unsportsmanlike conduct for throwing a water bottle on the court during his quarter final exit against Karen Khachanov on Tuesday night.


Prior to that contest, the childish ace had already been fined £16,000 for four separate incidents in his singles and doubles actions.

Kyrgios won more than £435,000 in prize money from the singles and doubles action – him and Thanasi Kokkinakis were knocked out in the third round.

Now he must hand over more than £28,200 to authorities for bad behaviour.

The fines sheet for the tournament made interesting reading.
