Nick Kyrgios hit in pocket after insulting remark to Stanislas Wawrinka on tennis court
Nick Kyrgios has been fined for an insulting remark made to Stanislas Wawrinka during their Rogers Cup match in Montreal this week.
French Open champion Stan Wawrinka branded Kyrgios ''unacceptable'' and called for action to be taken against him after the Australian appeared to make comments about his girlfriend.
The ATP confirmed on Thursday: "The ATP has announced that Nick Kyrgios has been fined for an insulting remark made to Stanislas Wawrinka during his second round match at the Rogers Cup in Canada."
Details of the fine are not being made public until after Kyrgios has been notified.
Kyrgios won Wednesday's contest after the Swiss retired hurt, but it was an apparent exchange at the end of the first set which become the focal point.
On-court microphones recorded 20-year-old Kyrgios walking to the net and saying: ''Kokkinakis b***** your girlfriend. Sorry to tell you that mate'' - an apparent reference to Australian Davis Cup team-mate Thanasi Kokkinakis.
Speaking on court afterwards, Kyrgios claimed he had been provoked, saying: ''He was getting a bit lippy with me. Kind of in the heat of the moment, I don't know. I just said it.''
