Tennis bad boy Nick Kyrgios has been slapped with his letest hefty fine following an outburst at the Miami Open. It is the latest in a long line of punishments levied upon the outspoken Aussie, who has built a reputation as a controversial figure within the men’s game.

His latest display of poor behaviour came in his defeat to Jannik Sinner in Miami. Kyrgios incurred the wrath of the ATP officials early in the match, as he was handed a code violation for an audible use of foul language.

Kyrgios was later docked a point for unsportsmanlike conduct, following his dressing-down of umpire Carlos Bernardes after his walkie-talkie made a noise during a rally. He later slapped with a one-game penalty for his racket abuse.

The Aussie has now been fined a total of £26,635 for his behaviour in that match, after the ATP chose to punish him for four separate offences. His audible obscenity and two counts of unsportsmanlike conduct were worth £3,805 each, while his verbal abuse of the umpire cost him a princely sum of £15,220.
