After creating a firestorm of controversy last night with a rude remark during his match with Stan Wawrinka in Montreal, Nick Kyrgios went on Facebook this afternoon to issue an apology.
“I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for the comments I made during the match last night vs Stan Wawrinka,” Kyrgios wrote. “My comments were made in the heat of the moment and were unacceptable on many levels. In addition to the private apology I’ve made, I would like to make a public apology as well. I take full responsibility for my actions and regret what happened.”
The ATP has since fined the 20-year-old for insulting the Swiss, but the amount has yet to be disclosed.
Kyrgios beat Wawrinka when Stan retired down 40 in the third. He plays John Isner later this afternoon in the Montreal third round.
