ATP has Kyrgios ‘on parole’, with $35,000 on the line

AUSTRALIAN bad boy Nick Kyrgios has been threatened with suspension and a further fine if he steps out of line again.

The ATP has announced the 20-year-old (pictured) would be banned for 28 days and be ordered to pay an additional $35,000 if he did not meet certain conditions over the next six months.

Kyrgios was originally fined $13,500 for his sledge directed at Swiss Stan Wawrinka during the Montreal Masters earlier this month.

The ATP concluded the world No.37 had committed a "major offence", vice-president Gayle David Bradshaw adding that it had "reflected poorly on our sport".

"Nick has expressed regret and the best result would be that he learns a lesson from this incident and that he understands he is responsible to the tour and to fellow players for both his actions and words," Bradshaw said.

"It is with these factors in mind I feel he should have the opportunity to 'earn' his way out of additional sanctions."
