The 20 year old Australian was given a code violation for an audible obscenity by the umpire.

The 20 year old Australian player was a set and a break down when he was given a code violation for an audible obscenity by the umpire. What followed this was very strange as the world number 29 just conceded points on purpose by not swinging at his opponent Gasquet’s serves. This led to boos and jeers from the crowd on court No 2.

However this action by Nick could cause him a lot of trouble and right now it seems that he could be fined $250,000 under the official grand slam rules. The rules state “A player shall use his best efforts to win a match when competing” and Nick certainly did not do that.

After the game ended Nick started to sarcastically applaud the British umpire James Keothavong who had given him the code violation for audible obscenity in the first place. Nick even had argued with the umpire over changing his socks during the third set.

Before this drama at the court Nick had also separated with his coach Todd Larkham just a week before the Championships. The Australian has been quite heavily criticized in the aftermath of his fourth round loss to Gasquet and can even face severe punishment from the International Tennis Federation.

After the game when Nick was asked about his performance in the game he stated that he had obviously tried but there were a lot of ups and downs according to him. He stated that it was a really tough time especially when Gasquet wasn’t missing any balls.

He explained that he was getting frustrated himself and felt that he wasn’t playing how he should play. When he was asked about the possibility of being fined he maintained that he doesn’t think that he has been treated unfairly and if the authorities decide to fine him they can.

In his defense Nick stated that Gasquet’s serves were really good, according to Guardian. Plus when Nick was asked whether he feels as the bad boy of tennis he seemed disappointed and stated that just because he shows emotion on the court he is termed as the bad boy. All along the conference Nick kept denying that he deliberately gave away the game and maintained that he was frustrated and the game was really tough.

On the other hand Andy Murray has asked Nick to never change. Murray stated that the most important thing is to be yourself. When he was asked to comment on Nick’s behavior he stated that people don’t ever understand how difficult it is when people are expecting you to be perfect from a young age.
