Iran News - - SPORTS -

LON­DON (Reuters) Aus­tralia’s Nick Kyr­gios has been fined $10,000 (7,582.08 pounds) and de­ducted his $21,000 first-round losers’ cheque fol­low­ing his de­ci­sion to walk off after los­ing the first set against Steve John­son in the Shang­hai Mas­ters on Tues­day.

The tem­pes­tu­ous Kyr­gios had just been beaten in a tiebreak against John­son when he walked to the net, of­fered his hand to the Amer­i­can and stormed off court to the be­muse­ment of his op­po­nent and chair um­pire Fer­gus Mur­phy. Kyr­gios, 22, was booed off court by the crowd. The ATP said on Wednesday that Kyr­gios had been pun­ished for “un­sports­man­like con­duct”, say­ing he had failed to com­plete a med­i­cal visit to ex­plain his ac­tions.
