I’m the fan who Nick Kyrgios accused of having ‘700 drinks’ at Wimbledon…I’d only had two and I was supporting him

Date:

A TENNIS fan who Nick Kyrgios demanded be thrown out of Centre Court after he accused her of having “700 drinks” says she actually had just one Pimm’s and a rosé.

The 27-year-old Australian was furious at Polish lawyer Ania Palus, 32, when she started to talk just as he was about to serve.

Ania, who was ejected temporarily, said she’d only had two drinks and blamed the heat on Centre Court.

She said: “He always says the crowd is against him and I wanted to show we were for him, I wanted to encourage him.

“I only had one Pimm’s and one rosé.

“It’s the temperature for me, I had no hat. I’m really sorry.”

Kyrgios lashed out at the umpire in the third set, pointing out Ania who he thought was too drunk.

He told the umpire: “Why is she still here?

“She’s drunk out of her mind and speaking to me in the middle of a game.”

When asked to point her out, he said: “The one who looks like she’s had about 700 drinks.”

Ania was given a bottle of water and allowed back on court for the rest of the final.

Kyrgios repeatedly dropped the f-bomb during yesterday’s final – with Prince George looking shocked in the stands as he watched his first-ever Wimbledon match.

A BBC commentator had to tell viewers after the incident yesterday afternoon: “Apologies for the language, it’s live sport, it’s tense”.

The foul language came after Kyrgios had lost a point on his serve before Djokovic went on to clinch his fourth Wimbledon title in a row.

He shouted up towards his girlfriend Costeen Hastzi and sister Halimah, complaining about their apparent lack of support and saying “Do you f****** care at all?”

Kyrgios, due in court in Oz for allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend, also yelled: “Just say something… is this not a big enough moment for you?” to his supporters.

He was later fined £3,325 for “audible obscenity”.

But he won £1,050,000 as runner-up, with Djokovic scooping £2million.

Asked if he needed to improve his behaviour, he said: “I think the other 126 players in the draw could improve their composure.”

In a sweet moment in the members’ area after the match, Prince George was given the trophy to hold by Djokovic.
