When will he ever learn?!

Controversial Aussie tennis player Nick Kyrgios is paying the price for yet another embarrassing outburst.

The ATP Tour has fined him a combined $113,000 for eight different violations during a rather eventful second round match against Karen Khachanov on Wednesday.

Among the reasons he is being punished is for smashing his rackets in the hallway while taking a washroom break, insulting and spitting at umpire Fergus Murphy, and purposely taking a long time to get ready to return a serve.

The 24-year old is no stranger to on-court issues like this. In May, he got kicked out of the Italian Open for throwing a chair.

He was also previously fined $32,900 in 2016 for verbally abusing a spectator and tanking at the Shanghai Masters, and got in trouble for directing lewd insults at his opponent Stan Wawrinka at the 2015 Rogers Cup.

Kyrgios currently ranks 27th in the ATP Tour.

Some shocking news coming out of the NBA.

After a scary experience with an irregular heartbeat, veteran big man LaMarcus Aldridge has decided to put his health first and retire from the game of basketball.

“Though I’m better now, what I felt with my heart that night was still one of the scariest things I’ve experience,” said Aldridge.

“With that being said, I’ve made the difficult decision to retire from the NBA. For 15 years, I’ve put basketball first, and now, it is time to put my health and family first.”

The 35-year old had just signed with the Brooklyn Nets on March 28 after being waived from the San Antonio Spurs following the trade deadline.

The seven-time All-Star averaged 19.4 points, 8.2 rebounds and 2.0 assists over 15 seasons and 1,029 career games split between the Portland Trail Blazers, San Antonio Spurs and Nets.

The Colorado Avalanche are going to have to get by without their starting goalie for a little while.

The team has confirmed that Philipp Grubauer will be sidelined for at least two weeks after being placed in the NHL COVID-19 protocol after a positive COVID-19 test.

“It’ll be at least 14 days before his next game,” said Avalanche head coach Jared Bednar.

“Not ideal, but I know he’ll be hungry to get back in the net when he’s healthy.”

The 29-year old has posted a 25-8-1 record with a 2.00 goals-against average, .920 save percentage and five shutouts in 34 games this season.
