Wimbledon quarter-finalist Nick Kyrgios is set to appear in court in Australia next month in relation to an allegation of common assault.

Nick Kyrgios will play in the Wimbledon quarter-finals on Wednesday

Police said it follows an incident in December last year which Kyrgios’ barrister says was “in the context of a domestic relationship”.

Kyrgios is now scheduled to appear at the Australia Capital Territory Magistrates’ Court on 2 August.

He will play Chile’s Cristian Garin in the Wimbledon last eight on Wednesday.

Kyrgios’ barrister Jason Moffett, speaking to The Canberra Times in Australia, said: “The nature of the allegation is serious, and Mr Kyrgios takes the allegation very seriously.

“Given the matter is before the court, he doesn’t have a comment at this stage, but in the fullness of time we’ll issue a media release.”

A police statement said: “ACT Policing can confirm a 27-year-old Watson man is scheduled to face the ACT Magistrates’ Court on 2 August in relation to one charge of common assault following an incident in December 2021.”
