Kyrgios ready to get serious

Kyrgios ready to get serious

With his often nonchalant approach and penchant for trick shots, Nick Kyrgios often gives the impression that grafting away throughout a two-week grand slam is not really his cup of tea.

While his talent has never been disputed since he stunned Rafael Nadal with an audacious fourth-round display at Wimbledon in 2014, his volatile temperament has too often been his undoing, regularly landing him in hot water.

The past two weeks, however, have seen his tennis making the headlines. He almost beat eight-times Wimbledon champion Roger Federer at the Stuttgart grasscourt tournament and a week later he served almost 100 aces en route to the Queen's Club semis.

Kyrgios fined for inappropriate behavior at Queen's Club

The ATP tour has fined Nick Kyrgios 15,000 euros ($17,500) for inappropriate behavior during the Queen's Club tournament.

Kyrgios was caught on camera performing an imitation of a lewd act as he sat in a courtside chair at the change of ends during his semifinal loss to Marin Cilic on Saturday.

During an earlier win at the same tournament over Kyle Edmund, British broadcaster BBC apologized to viewers after a string of expletives by Kyrgios were audible on air.

The 23-year-old Kyrgios has won four titles on the ATP Tour and is widely considered to be a talented and temperamental player, but has a history of sanctions for his behavior on and off the court.
