Kyrgios charged with assault in Australia
London, Jul 5 (EFE).- Nick Kyrgios on Tuesday was summoned to appear before an Australian court over assault charges.
The Australian tennis player will have to appear before Canberra’s ACT Magistrates Court on August 2 over a common assault case that allegedly occurred last December, the police said.
Kyrgios’s attorney Jason Moffett told The Canberra Times that the charges were “in the context of a domestic relationship.”
“The nature of the allegation is serious, and Mr Kyrgios takes the allegation very seriously,” he added.
The 27-year-old is one victory away from his maiden Grand Slam semifinal appearance, as he takes on Christian Garín in his second Wimbledon last-8 match scheduled for Wednesday. EFE
