Nick Kyrgios will appear in court.
Wimbledon quarter-finalist Nick Kyrgios is scheduled to appear in court in Australia next month on a charge of common assault.
The incident occurred in December of last year, according to Kyrgios’ barrister, “in the context of a domestic relationship.”
Kyrgios will now appear in the Australia Capital Territory Magistrates’ Court on August 2.
He will face Chile’s Cristian Garin on Wednesday in the Wimbledon last eight.
Kyrgios’ lawyer, Jason Moffett, told The Canberra Times in Australia: “The nature of the allegation is grave, and Mr Kyrgios takes it very seriously.
“He doesn’t have a comment because the case is in court, but we’ll issue a media release when it’s ready.
Association of Tennis Professionals
The Association of Tennis Professionals issued the following statement:
“The ATP is aware of the Australian case involving Nick Kyrgios but as legal proceedings are ongoing it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.”
