Nick Kyrgios slapped with biggest fine of 2022 US Open for spitting, obscenities

Nick Kyrgios has been fined $7,500 for "spitting and audible obscenities" during his US Open second round match. On Wednesday, Kyrgios defeated Benjamin Bonzi 7-6 (3) 6-4 4-6 6-4. At one point of the match, Kyrgios lost his cool and spat in the direction of his box.

Also, delivered some obscenities. “Go home if you’re not going to f----- support me bro,” Kyrgios shouted towards his box.

Kyrgios, Thanasi Kokkinakis make a winning start in doubles

In the US Open doubles first round, Kyrgios and Kokkinakis defeated Hugo Gaston and Lorenzo Musetti 4-6 6-3 6-4.

On Thursday, Kyrgios had a day off when it comes to singles action. After winning his doubles opener with Kokkinakis, Kyrgios said he would rather play doubles than practice. "Honestly, I’d rather play doubles than practice.

It’s good money too and makes my girlfriend happy," Kyrgios said.

On Monday, Kyrgios made a winning start to his US Open singles campaign after beating close friend Kokkinakis 6-3 6-4 7-6 (4).

After the match, Kyrgios admitted that it was a "nightmare draw" for him as he just didn't want to play his best friend. Also, Kyrgios said he was looking forward to playing doubles with Kokkinakis. “When we both saw the draw, it was a nightmare honestly.

We never want to play each other,” Kyrgios said. “I can’t wait to get out there and play doubles with him on the right side of the net in a couple of days. We’re going to play each other again, hopefully never again”.

In the US Open doubles second round, Kyrgios and Kokkinakis play Andre Goransson and Yoshihito Nishioka. Going into the match, Kyrgios and Kokkinakis are absolutely the favorites to win that encounter. Earlier this year, Kyrgios and Kokkinakis became Grand Slam champions together after winning the Australian Open doubles title. It remains to be seen if Kyrgios and Kokkinakis can go all the way at the US Open as well.
