Wimbledon finalist Nick Kyrgios has Australian court date postponed by 3 weeks
Australian tennis player was set to face common assault charge in court on Aug. 2
Wimbledon tennis finalist Nick Kyrgios' court date to face a common assault charge has been postponed by three weeks.
But court officials said Friday that the case is now scheduled to be heard on Aug. 23. Kyrgios is not required to attend that court session if he is legally represented.
Canberra solicitor Michael Kukulies-Smith is now acting on Kyrgios' behalf. Kukulies-Smith on Friday would also not confirm details of the charge, saying it would be inappropriate while the matter was before the courts.
Kyrgios is scheduled to play a tournament in Cincinnati, Ohio in mid-August before the U.S. Open begins in New York on Aug. 29.
