Nick Kyrgios continues to rack up fines for violations on the ATP Tour with the Australian pressured to fork out one other $35,000 (about £26,500) for his meltdown on the Miami Open.
Barely per week after he was hit with a $25,000 (roughly £19,000) effective for almost hitting a ball individual when he smashed his racket on the Indian Wells Open, Kyrgios once more misplaced his cool throughout his fourth-round defeat towards Jannik Sinner in Miami.
The controversial 26-year-old was handed some extent penalty on the finish of the primary set after smashing his racket and that was upgraded to a docked sport initially of the second set after one other violation.
Nick Kyrgios doubles down on criticism of chair umpire: ‘He made it about himself’
Unimpressed by chair umpire Carlos Bernardes’ selections, he went off on a rant.
“Get a brand new set of referees, these guys don’t know how one can do s***,” he shouted.
“Walky-talkies going off. It’s a joke. He’s a joke. Do away with each single employees and begin over. Every little thing. I’ll run the game. I might do 100x a greater job. Advertising and marketing. Every little thing. You guys don’t know. None. You guys can’t even ref proper.”
After the match Kyrgios was fined $5,000 (£3,800) for audible obscenity, $10,000 (£7,600) for unsportsmanlike conduct and $20,000 (£15,000) for verbal abuse by the ATP.
Kyrgios, although, received $94,575 (£72,000) for reaching the fourth spherical within the singles and $120,520 (£92,000) for a run to the doubles semi-final with the latter being shared with Thanasi Kokkinakis.
