    As a Canadian, that was disgraceful. He should never play professional tennis again.

    As bad as Nick Kyrios is, even he wouldn't stoop to this level.

    Thanks, surrender.

        That's interesting..I almost never watch tennis but after watching that I could see John McEnroe doing that and being proud of it afterwards.

            Ridiculous statement and completely hyperbolic.

            The outcome of what he did was bad but his intentions and immediate contrition show that he was appalled himself.

            He should and will be fined, perhaps suspended. But to ban him from tennis for life is silly.

            Kyrgios is purposely malicious in many if the things he does and says which is far worse.

                Denis Shapovalov has been fined 5,623 after hitting umpire Arnaud Gabas in the eye with a ball during Canada's Davis Cup tie against Great Britain, ouch that is one expensive wrong directed ball

                    Very low compared to some of the big players like Serena who have been fined for slamming their rackets down on the court, injuring no one.

                    I think his age, immediate contrition, the way he handled it post-match and the fact that he's a low profile player contributed to the levity of the punishment.

                        After watching it over again, and after him being sincerely sorry about his actions, I take back what I said about him earlier.

                            You can clearly see he didn't mean to hit the umpire, so while he deserves punishment he definitely should get the chance to play again.

                            Now if he had done that on purpose, then yeah, a lifetime ban would be appropriate.
