Nick Kyrgios doesn’t have the threat of further fines or penalties hanging over his head after his on-court tantrum at the Italian Open.

The 24-year-old Australian, unseeded at the French Open for the second straight major, was defaulted in Rome, fined $32,458 for unsportsmanlike conduct. Kyrgios also forfeited $54,590 in prize money as well as ranking points for last week’s tournament.

Opinions varied wildly as to whether Kyrgios should face further penalties after the Australian, having copped a point penalty and then a game penalty, booted a water bottle and picked up a fold-up wooden chair and hurled it across the court. His second-round opponent, Norway’s Casper Ruud, said Kyrgios should be suspended for at least six months while Roger Federer was one tennis peer to downplay the seriousness of Kyrgios’ behaviour.

Nick Kyrgios has taken a swipe at the French Open , claiming that the second major tournament of Absolutely sucks . "I think it's the best tournament in the world The live broadcast is the latest in a string of controversial outbursts from Kyrgios , who suffered a meltdown at the Italian Open last week.

Not that Kyrgios might be that concerned with his prospects on clay in Paris, despite the removal of further potential penalties. The two-time grand slam quarter-finalist unloaded on Roland Garros and all things clay while training for the second major of 2019 at Wimbledon in London this week.

“The fact that I’m here right now and then I have to go to Paris in like a couple of days is like ... the French Open just sucks compared to this place,” Kyrgios said in a video posted on Instagram.

“It sucks. It absolutely sucks.”

While hitting up with Andy Murray at Wimbledon, Kyrgios also reportedly said: "This is the best tournament in the world ... get rid of the clay, man. Who likes the clay?"

While all eyes will be on Kyrgios’ antics in Paris, 21st seed Alex de Minaur heads Australia’s male contingent, alongside Matthew Ebden, John Millman, Jordan Thompson, Bernard Tomic and wildcard Alexei Popyrin, also a former French Open junior champion.

'Absolute sucks': Kyrgios' rant at icon

'Absolute sucks': Kyrgios' rant at icon Nick Kyrgios has launched a shock attack on one of tennis' greatest icons, leading into the season's second Grand Slam.

Nick Kyrgios has conceded his French Open hopes were all but done for after the death of his grandfather in April. But a point penalty for a violent assault on a changeover chair will instead dominate TV highlights, rather than Kyrgios ’s four flush aces in one love service hold.

The Parisian crowd may also be a little scornful after he said the French Open " absolutely sucks " compared to Wimbledon in a video he shot himself and posted on social media. By his own admission, Kyrgios has virtually no chance of winning the tournament on a surface he "hates"

The controversies that continue to overshadow Kyrgios’ immense talent could yet affect him at next year’s Tokyo Olympics. As Australia’s second-ranked male player, Kyrgios is on track to represent Australia in the men’s singles.

In the lead-up to the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics, Kyrgios withdrew his candidacy after a bitter public feud with then-Australian Olympic Committee chef de mission Kitty Chiller.

The AOC last week confirmed it was monitoring Kyrgios’ behaviour.

"We are some way off the nomination and selection process for Tokyo. There’s nothing to be gained commenting now on a process that will happen then," they said in a statement.

‘‘This type of behaviour is clearly unacceptable.’’

Kyrgios has previously been fined by the ATP for his behaviour.

Most famously, in 2015 Kyrgios insulted opponent Stan Wawrinka with crude remarks during a match in Montreal. He was fined $US12,500 and given a suspended 28-day ban.
