Nick Kyrgios has had a bad reputation outside the court for a long time. He picks fights with referees, provokes rivals, swears at fans, curses at journalists, and throws chairs. Yet the Australian is also a very talented player, ranked among the world's best.

The Australian is used to breaking the rules. Kyrgios entered the Wimbledon 1/8 finals with Nakashima in red trainers and broke the tournament dress code. Only white clothes are permitted at Wimbledon. He wore a red tennis cap during the press conference after the match. When asked about it, he said: "I do what I want. No, I'm not above the rules. I just like wearing my jordans. That's all!"

In October 2021, Kyrgios and his girlfriend, Chiara Passari, began to drift apart. In her social networks, the girl told about numerous adulteries of her beloved, posting screenshots of their correspondence. The tennis player justified one of the betrayals by telling a friend to kiss him. According to the girl, Kyrgios had intimate correspondence with famous singer Rita Ora during their relationship and bragged about it to his friends. On another occasion, he claimed that a naked girl just got into bed with him while he was sleeping.

Besides cheating, Kyrgios often insulted his girlfriend. He called her a "disgrace," "toxic," and suggested that she should find another man and even commit suicide. "I quit my job and moved out of my flat to travel with him, and he constantly humiliated me, calling me a 'slacker, lazy and an unemployed loser,'" Passari confessed.

At the end of their relationship, Chiara and Nick spent a covid quarantine in a hotel in Adelaide, but the fights were so loud that they had to call the police and settle the exes in separate rooms.

And immediately after breaking up with Chiara, Kyrgios had a new fling - 21-year-old model Costeen Hatzi.

But this time, Kyrgios has crossed all boundaries. The court accuses the Australian of assaulting ex-girlfriend Chiara Passari by allegedly grabbing her roughly. The athlete faces up to two years in prison for this.

The tennis player's lawyer Jason Moffett has spoken out about the lawsuit. He confirmed that Kyrgios was aware of the possible punishment. "There are serious charges being brought, and Kyrgios understands that. Given that the case is already under court review, he has no comment at this stage, but we will issue a press release at the right time," Moffett said. A court hearing in the case is scheduled for August 2, 2022.

Kyrgios is now competing in the Wimbledon tournament. The scandal, if anything, has had a positive impact on his performance: after all the hype, Nick easily beat Cristian Garin (6-4, 6-3, 7-6) and advanced to the semi-finals, where he will play Rafael Nadal himself.

Unfortunately, the Nick Kyrgios case is not unique in world tennis. Recall that in 2021, German Alexander Zverev, who was accused of domestic violence by his ex-girlfriend Olga Sharypova, found himself in a similar situation. The tennis player strongly denied being rude to the girl. A case was filed, and the investigation is still ongoing. Still, Zverev continued to perform successfully on the ATP tour until he suffered a serious injury in the semi-finals of Roland Garros 2022 against Rafael Nadal.

Kyrgios, on the other hand, is not a defendant until the first hearing, according to his lawyer, so he will probably continue to play.
