After his shameful performance Wednesday night in a loss to Karen Khachanov in Cincinnati, the ATP slapped Nick Kyrgios with a $113K fine with a potentially more to come.

The ATP broke down the final as follows:

* Ball Abuse (Warning)
* Unsportsmanlike Conduct (Point Penalty) – US$ 20,000 fine
* Leaving the Court – US$ 3,000 fine
* Audible Obscenity – US$ 5,000 fine
* Unsportsmanlike Conduct – US$ 5,000 fine
* Unsportsmanlike Conduct – US$ 20,000 fine
* Verbal Abuse – US$ 20,000 fine
* Unsportsmanlike Conduct – US$ 20,000 fine
* Unsportsmanlike Conduct – US$ 20,000 fine

“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 Offense section of the code. That could result in an additional fine and/or suspension,” the ATP said.

The fine is the largest levied by the ATP since David Nalbandian was defaulted from Queen’s in 2012 forfeiting over $60K.
