Nick Kyrgios addresses summons to court on allegations of assault

Nick Kyrgios admits he has a lot to say regarding the situation with his ex-girlfriend Chiara Passari but adds he will listen to his lawyers and keep his thoughts to himself at this time. This week, Australian media reported that Kyrgios is due to face court next month for allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend Passari.

The incident reportedly happened in late 2021 and Kyrgios will be taken to court next month. "I have a lot of thoughts and things I want to say, my side of it, but I've been advised by my lawyers that I can't say anything about it at this time," Kyrgios said, per James Gray.

Lawyers: Kyrgios has not been charged with assault

On Tuesday, Australian media reported that Kyrgios was charged with assault. A few hours later, Johanessen Legal - a legal firm representing Kyrgios - called those reports "completely inaccurate."

"Today's media headline that Mr. Kyrgios has been 'charged' is completely inaccurate," Johanessen Legal said in a statement. "At the present time, the allegations are not considered as fact by the Court, and Mr.

Kyrgios is not considered charged with an offence until the First Appearance. Until the court formally accepts the Prosecution will be proceeding with a charge, and that the charge before the Court is to be applied to the person summoned to appear, it may be misleading to the public to describe the Summons in any other manner than a formal direction to appear to face allegations, the precise nature of which is neither certain at this moment not confirmed by either the Prosecution or Mr.

Kyrgios. While Mr. Kyrgios is committed to addressing any and all allegations once clear, taking the matter seriously does not warrant any misleading of the process Mr. Kyrgios is required to follow." Meanwhille, Kyrgios has been through to his first Grand Slam semifinal at Wimbledon. In the Wimbledon semifinal, Kyrgios faces Rafael Nadal.
