Davis Cup: Kyrgios will play against Britain in semifinal
SYDNEY (AP) — Australia’s Davis Cup captain Wally Masur says Nick Kyrgios will not be dropped from the country’s semifinal against Britain in September despite being fined for his obscene on-court remarks against Swiss player Stanislas Wawrinka.
Kyrgios received a $10,000 fine from the ATP Tour for the remarks and $2,500 for comments made to a ball boy during the second-round match at the Rogers Cup in Montreal, Canada.
The ATP also launched an investigation to see whether the remarks violated the Player Major Offense provisions, with a suspension possible.
Masur confirmed Friday that Kyrgios would play in the Glasgow semifinal from Sept. 18-20 and that he was pleased the 20-year-old Australian apologized.
Masur says “how punitive can you be? Obviously the consequences will go beyond this week ...”
