Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios has been banned for eight weeks and fined over £20,000 for his behaviour on court
The ATP, who run men's tennis, said Kryrgios argued with a fan, swore and didn't try hard enough during in his 6-3, 6-1 defeat by Mischa Zverev.
The 21-year-old patted the ball over the net several times when serving and he also began walking back to his chair before a Zverev serve had even landed.
World number 14 Kyrgios said he was "truly sorry" and would "use this time off to improve on and off the court".
He added: "I regret that my year is ending this way. "
"The season has been a long one as I battled several injuries and other challenges towards the end of the summer."
"This is no excuse, and I know very well that I need to apologise to the fans."
It's not the first time Kyrgios has been in trouble with the tennis authorities:
- He withdrew from Rio 2016 following a row with the Australian Olympic Committee.
- At Wimbledon 2015 he was fined after he kept missing or hitting the ball into the net and arguing with the umpire over taking too long to change his socks.
- Kyrgios also hugged a ball boy and threw his racquet into the crowd during the third set.
- In 2015 he was banned for 28 days and fined $25,000 for things he said during a Rogers Cup match about female tennis player.
