Nick Kyrgios is keen to put his previous run-in with Stan Wawrinka in the past as the pair prepare to team up for the Singapore Slammers in the International Premier Tennis League.
When the pair met in the second round of the Rogers Cup in August, Kyrgios was heard sledging Wawrinka from the other side of the Montreal court
“[Thanasi] Kokkinakis banged your girlfriend. Sorry to tell you that, mate,” he was heard stating, comments that saw the young Australian widely criticised.
The ATP responded swiftly by handing Kyrgios a $35,000 fine and a 28-day ban – both on a suspended basis for six months.
They have not met on tour since that encounter in Montreal, but will be on the same IPTL side later this week, something Kyrgios is confident will not be a problem.
“We haven’t obviously talked at all,” said Kyrgios. “I think whatever has happened has happened.
“I think we’ve got one goal, he’s a great player and he’s obviously going to be the main guy for our team, so I’m going to do everything I can, whether that’s me being on the bench, you know doing whatever I can to warm him up or whatever.
“Here, I think we all want to win and hopefully we can put everything aside and just do that.”
