Nick Kyrgios handed £13,500 fine by ATP for breaching code of conduct at Shanghai Masters


Kyrgios appeared to give up during his second-round defeat to Mischa Zverev, who is ranked 110th in the world.
The 21-year-old Australian tennis star, who won the Japan Open in Tokyo last week, seemed disinterested in the match and at one point walked back to his seat before a return was hit.


Kyrgios also replied to a disgruntled fan in the crowd by saying: “You want to come and play?”
As a result of his behaviour, the Australian has been punished by the ATP, which released a statement reading: “After completion of the on-site investigation, Kyrgios received the on-site maximum fine of $10,000 (£8,200) for lack of best efforts, as well as a $5,000 (£4,100) fine for verbal abuse of a spectator, and a $1,500 (£1,200) fine for unsportsmanlike conduct.”
