Wimbledon finalist Nick Kyrgios to apply for assault charge dismissal, citing mental health

Oct 7, 2022

Wimbledon finalist Nick Kyrgios is expected to appear in an Australian court early next year for a common assault charge related to a 2021 incident involving a former girlfriend where he intends to apply for the charge to be dismissed on mental health grounds, according to reports.

Kyrgios attorney Michael Kukulies-Smith claimed that the tennis pro has made several public statements about his mental health history since 2015 and asked the court to adjourn so forensic mental health reports could be prepared for their application.
