Nick Kyrgios settles legal case with Wimbledon spectator | Nick Kyrgios

Nick Kyrgios has settled a legal case with a spectator he accused of having “around 700 drinks” during this year’s Wimbledon final.

Kyrgios complained to the umpire about the behavior of Anna Palus during his four-set loss to Novak Djokovic on Center Court.

Having just received a code violation for swearing after a spectator shouted before his second serve, Kyrgios begged umpire Renaud Lichtenstein to remove the woman “looks like she’s had about 700 drinks bro” .

Palus was briefly removed from court and later explained that she had only had two drinks.

In a statement released by Knight Temple Law, which represented Palus, Kyrgios apologized for his comments, adding that he made a significant donation to charity because he wanted to “make amends”.

Kyrgios said: “On July 10, 2022, during the Wimbledon men’s final, I told the referee that a fan, who I now know to be Anna Palus, distracted me during the match and believed she was drunk wash.

“I accept that the belief was wrong, and I apologize. To make amends, I donated £20,000 to the Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity, a charity chosen by Ms Palus. I will not comment on this matter again.”
