“We are aware of the legal procedures surrounding Nick Kyrgios in Australia, and as these are ongoing, we are not in a position to provide a comment,” an All England Club representative said of the tournament’s organisers.

The representative further stated: “We are in contact with Nick’s team, and he still has tomorrow’s quarterfinal match scheduled.”

The world number 40 received a fine of 4,000 dollars for swearing during Saturday’s tense match with Stefanos Tsitsipas. 10,000 dollars (£8,260) for admitting to spitting in the direction of a fan. Who heckled him during the first-round match against Paul Jubb.

Given that Kyrgios violated Wimbledon’s tight clothing code by wearing red Air Jordan sneakers and a red cap for an on-court interview after his most recent triumph, he may soon face a third sentence. Kyrgios has frequently argued with line judges at this grand slam.

Kyrgios has twice advanced to the final eight of a grand slam, losing both times. Once at the Australian Open and once on his Wimbledon debut in 2014.
