Wimbledon quarter-finalist Nick Kyrgios is due to appear in court in Australia next month on charges of common attack.
Police say this follows an incident in December, which Kyrgios’ barrister said was “in the context of a family relationship”.
Kyrgios is now scheduled to appear in the Australian Capital Territory District Court on August 2.
He will face Chile’s Christian Garin in the last eight of Wimbledon on Wednesday.
Kyrgios’ barrister Jason Moffett told the Canberra Times in Australia: “The nature of the allegations is serious and Mr Kyrgios takes it very seriously.
“He has not commented at this stage given the matter has been brought to court, but we will issue a press release as time permits.”
“ACT Police can confirm that a 27-year-old Watson man, scheduled to appear in ACT Magistrates Court on August 2, has been charged with one count of common assault following an incident in December 2021,” a police statement said.
