Nick Kyrgios fined $113K for antics at Cincinnati Masters

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.
