Kyrgios Wipes Crotch, Spits In Towel Before Throwing It To A Fan
Being a Nick Kyrgios fan is not hygienic business.
After his 6-3 7-6 6-4 win over Steve Johnson in the first-round of the US Open, Kygrios threw a fan in the crowd his towel.
But before doing so, Kyrgios wiped his crotch and armpits with the towel and spat in it.
A video of the moment was posted on Twitter, with some calling the moment "putrid".
"Always classy Nick Kyrgios. Wipes his sweat, crotch, armpits, then spits in a towel, right before throwing it to some fans. Real cool," said Sean Cassity, who posted the video.
In another day in the world of Kyrgios, the Australian tennis player launched another attack on the Association of Tennis Professionals.
The ATP handed a record US$113,000 (AU$167,000) fine to Kyrgios after an explosive tantrum during the Cincinnati Masters.
The Australian tennis player was penalised for nine infringements, including unsportsmanlike conduct, verbal abuse, audible obscenity and leaving the court during his second-round loss.
Kyrgios was asked about the fine on Wednesday, and it's safe to say the ATP are not among his favourite organisations.
"The ATP is pretty corrupt anyway. I’m not fussed about it at all,” he said during the press conference.
“I was fined $113K for what? Why are we talking about something that happened three weeks ago when I just chopped up someone first round of a US Open?”
The "corrupt" statement from Kyrgios is quite risky, as the ATP continues to investigate the Cincinnati indecent, with a suspension not off the table just yet.
"In addition to the on site fines announced today the ATP is looking further into what happened during and immediately after the match to see if additional action is warranted under the Player Major Offence section of the code," it said in a statement after the handing down of the fine.
"That could result in an additional fine and/or suspension."
Kyrgios will meet 104th-ranked Antoine Hoang of France in the second round.
