Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios -- who got warned for unsportsmanlike conduct during his Australian Open first-round clash -- has been handed a $3,000 fine. The 22-year-old got irritated by a fan during the first set of his clash against Brazil's Rogerio Dutra Silva as he told the fan to "shut the **** up." The Australian didn't get distracted after the incident as he got the job easily in straight sets 6-1 6-2 6-4 to open his campaign on a strong tale.
Kyrgios wasn't the only fined player as rising Croatian Borna Coric received a $5,000 fine for racquet abuse during his first-round loss suffered to Australia's John Millman. World No. 26 Diego Schwartzman and 27-year-old Marius Copil did the same offense as Coric did -- but were each handed a $2,000 fine.
Talented Alexander Bublik and Stefan Kozlov each received a $1,000 fine for audible obscenities made during the Australian Open qualifying. Also read: Bernard Tomic sends kind message to Nick Kyrgios .
