Kyrgios pays hefty price for fan outburst

NICK Kyrgios has been fined $3765 for unsportsmanlike conduct in the fall-out to his comfortable opening-round Australian Open victory.

 

The Aussie was among nine players fined a total $25,000 for indiscretions in qualifying and the main draw's first phase.

 

Kyrgios was heard telling a rowdy spectator to "shut the f... up" during a 6-1 6-2 6-4 rout of Brazilian Rogerio Dutra Silva.

 

Croat Borna Coric tops the fines bulletin with a $6274 penalty for racquet abuse during his defeat to Queenslander John Millman.

 

Argentina's Diego Schwartzman and Romanian Marius Copil were fined $2500 each for the same offence.

 

Kazakh Alexander Bublik was hit with two $1254 fines for audible obscenities during qualifying.

Czech Barbora Strycova copped a $2500 fine for racquet and equipment abuse while Danka Kovinic was penalised $630 for time violations.
