Tennis star Nick Kyrgios charged with common assault

Media in Australia reported that Nick Kyrgios, a tennis star, was charged with assaulting his ex-girlfriend.

This is a charge relating to an alleged assault on a former girlfriend in Dec 2021. Kyrgios will appear in Canberra court next month.

Canberra spokesperson for ACT Policing said that a 27-year old Watson man will be appearing before the ACT Magistrates Court on August 2nd. He is facing one charge of common assault after an incident in December 2021.

The current world number 40 is playing in the UK, and has reached the quarterfinals at Wimbledon.

Kyrgios’ legal representative claimed that he was not yet charged because he hasn’t appeared in court.

They also stated that he was “committed” to answering all allegations once they are resolved.

According to The Canberra Times, the allegation that the tennis star snatched his ex-partner Chiara Passari is believed to be the basis of the charge.

It was also confirmed that Jason Moffett from Key Chambers had been briefed on the matter and that his client was aware.

According to Mr Moffett, the charge was made in the context of a domestic relation. He also stated that the nature of the allegation was serious and Mr Kyrgios takes it very seriously.

In a quarter-final match, Kyrgios will face Cristian Garin from Chile on Wednesday.

Recent scandals have surrounded him with fines for his conduct during the tournament.

After he admitted that he had spilt in the direction of a spectator during his first round tie against Paul Jubb, a Briton player, he was given a $10,000 (PS8,260).

A further $4,000 (PS3,300), was added to his fine for swearing in Saturday’s heated clash with Stefanos Tipas.

Kyrgios broke the Wimbledon dress code by wearing red Air Jordan trainers with a red cap to interview him after his win yesterday.
