But the 27-year-old is also causing a stir off the court, so he has to answer in court next month.

The allegation is serious, Kyrgios is said to have physically attacked his ex-girlfriend last year.

Nick Kyrgios tops the list of penalties in Wimbledon - scandalous appearance in a duel against Tsitsipas

Tennis fans know Kyrgios as an emotional player who likes to dish out.

If you look for example on YouTube for freaking out of the world ranking fortieth, you will find numerous excerpts from different matches.

Kyrgios also put on his show in the duel against the Greek Tsitsipas, when he argued with the referee Damien Dumusois and asked him: "Are you stupid?".

He also called him a "disgrace" and insulted him with several swear words.

He has already been fined $14,000 for his behavior, making him the most heavily penalized player of the tournament to date.

These penalties, however, would not compare to what Kyrgios could now thrive.

The quarter-finalist must appear in court in his native Australia.

He is also said to have left her in New York at night after taking her cell phone or wallet.
