'Bad boy' Kyrgios banned after Shanghai tantrums

  |   Sports

Tennis 'bad boy' Nick Kyrgios has been banned for eight tournament weeks for his conduct at the Shanghai Masters last week, the governing body for men's tennis (ATP) said on Monday.

The volatile 21-year-old has also been slapped with an additional $25,000 fine for "conduct contrary to the integrity of the game", which can keep him out of action until mid-January.

The talented-yet-temperamental Australian was beaten 6-3 6-1 by Mischa Zverev in a second-round match in Shanghai in which Kyrgios put in a series of half-hearted serves and appeared to be walking off court before the unseeded German had returned the ball to him.
