Kyrgios is back in hot water after he was seen performing an imitation of a lewd act at the change of ends during his Queen’s semi-final loss to Marin Cilic on Saturday.
The 23-year-old has been handed a hefty sanction by the ATP Tour for “inappropriate behaviour”.

Kyrgios — who has been dogged by accusations of tanking in the past — had already been in trouble earlier in the week during his Queen’s win over Britain’s Kyle Edmund.
The BBC was forced to apologise to viewers after a string of Kyrgios expletives were audible on air.
Asked if he was concerned that the BBC had to issue an apology for his behaviour, Kyrgios said he “didn’t care”.
