Tennis star Kyrgios avoids conviction after pleading guilty to assaulting ex-girlfriend

After pleading guilty, Nick Kyrgios, an Australian tennis player, has been released without being charged.

Kyrgios admitted to pushing Chiara Passari down during a row in Canberra, January 2021.

A lawyer for the plaintiff stated that the act was a result of stupidity and frustration in a courtroom in Sydney. However, a psychologist told the court that he had experienced severe depression, suicidal thoughts, and insomnia in the past.

Because the assault was not premeditated, the magistrate did not record a conviction.


Kyrgios, 27 years old, was present on crutches after recent knee surgery.

Although he didn’t speak with reporters, he later released a statement in which he apologized for his actions.

Kyrgios stated, “I respect today’s decision and am grateful for the court’s dismissal of the charges without conviction.”

“I wasn’t in a good place at the time and I regret how I responded to this difficult situation. It wasn’t okay, and I am deeply sorry for the pain I caused.

Mental health can be difficult. It can be overwhelming. However, I have found that seeking help and working on my own problems has made me feel better.

According to the court, Kyrgios tried to flee his ex-girlfriend’s Canberra apartment during an argument.

Kyrgios called Uber, but Ms Passari stood before him and closed the passenger door.

Kyrgios pulled her shoulders forward with open palms so that she wouldn’t have to leave the driver’s car open. Kyrgios then slipped her knee into her knee and caused her to fall.

After her breakup with the star, Ms Passari signed an assault statement to police.

The current girlfriend of the player wrote a character reference to court stating that she was not concerned about violence in their relationship.

Sam Borenstein, Kyrgios’ psychologist, said to the court that Kyrgios had used drugs and alcohol in the past after experiencing major depressive episodes.

He was impulsive and reckless, but his mental health has improved significantly.

Kyrgios’s attorneys failed to succeed in an earlier attempt to have the charges dropped on mental health grounds.

His ‘bad boy image’, outspoken comments, natural talent and natural talent make him one of the most talked about tennis stars.

Last month, he suffered a setback when he had the Australian Open withdrawal due to a knee injury. He is currently ranked 20th around the world.
