Court proceedings have begun in which Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios is being tried for assaulting an ex-girlfriend. The details have not been explained in detail for now.
Kyrgios did not attend the first hearing and his lawyer said his client blamed poor mental health for the incident in December 2021, AFP reported.
“We have asked for an adjournment to allow his mental health to be assessed,” lawyer Michael told the Australian media Cuckoos-Smith, adding that the mental problems of the 27-year-old tennis player, a finalist at this year’s Wimbledon, are well known.
The next hearing is now scheduled for the 3rd. Februaryreports the French news agency AFP.
The player of Greek origin, who revealed some time ago that he also had suicidal thoughts in the past, is currently playing in a tennis tournament in Tokyo.
