Kyrgios retirement sets him back $31,085

It’s pocket change compared to the other major fine announcement on Wednesday.

But Aussie Nick Kyrgios will be out $31,085 US after his mid-match retirement Tuesday in Shanghai.

He was assessed a $10,000 fine for unsportsmanlike conduct. Added to that, he forfeits his first-round singles prize money for taking a pass on the mandatory post match-retirement medical.

So it was an expensive day.

The official reason was “viral illness”. Mischa Zverev retired for the same reason, up 6-3, 5-6 in his first-round singles match.

Kyrgios also earned nearly $11,500 US for reaching the second round of doubles.
