I’d only had two drinks, says ‘drunken’ woman who Nick Kyrgios had thrown off Centre Court 


The ‘drunken’ woman who Nick Kyrgios had thrown off Centre Court yesterday after saying she’d had ‘700 drinks’ has said that she only had two and was trying to support the tennis player.

Ania Palus, 32, who was temporarily ejected from the Wimbledon Grand Slam final, said that the temperature impacted her while watching the game.

The Polish medical lawyer said that she was trying to support Kyrgios, who ‘always says the crowd is against him’.

‘I wanted to show we were for him, I wanted to encourage him,’ she told The Sun. 

She also told The Telegraph that she supported the sportsman because she had suffered from depression, like him, and sympathised. 

‘I wanted to give him support. Maybe I took it too far… but I only had good intentions,’ she said. 

Ms Palus said that she drank a Pimms and a rosé, after the tennis player called her ‘drunk out of her mind’.

‘It’s the temperature for me, I had no hat,’ she said. ‘I’m really sorry.’ 

She was given water and allowed back into the match after about 15 minutes in order to watch the rest of the final. 

Kyrgios’ outburst came in the third set, as he pointed Ms Palus out in the crowd and claimed that she was putting him off.  

‘She’s distracting me when I’m serving in a Wimbledon final,’ he fumed at the umpire about the spectator. ‘There’s no other bigger occasion, you didn’t believe me and then she did it again. It nearly cost me the game. 

‘Why is she still here? She’s drunk out of her mind and speaking to me in the middle of a game. What’s acceptable?’

After the umpire replied ‘nothing is acceptable’, Kyrgios said: ‘Ok kick her out. I know exactly which one it is. The one in the dress, who looks like she’s had about 700 drinks bro.’

After the match, said: ‘I don’t need someone absolutely smashed talking to me point in, point out.’ 

Kyrgios’ first ever Grand Slam final was never going to pass by without an infamous outburst from the Australian. 

After taking the first set against Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon showpiece, Kyrgios dropped the second set and then let his anger get the better of him in the third. 

Twenty minutes before his outburst about Ms Palus, Kyrgios launched into a furious argument with his team in his box after dropping the second set.

The Australian was broken early in the set to allow Djokovic to get into a position where he could serve for the set at 5-3 up.

But Kyrgios raced into a 0-40 lead in his opponent’s service game, earning him three break points.

However he failed to make any of them count and also could not convert a break point at deuce as Djokovic fought back to take the game and the second set.

Kyrgios was seen shaking his head as he made his way to his chair for the break and in true and then began attacking his team.

‘Why don’t you say something?’ he yelled. ‘Why? You said nothing that whole point, 40-love down, nothing.’ 

His girlfriend Costeen Hatzi — who Kyrgios calls his ‘biggest blessing’ — was seen desperately trying to calm him down as he raged from the court. 

Kyrgios has gained a reputation in the tennis world for his angry outbursts, with his third round match against Stefanos Tsitsipas this year proving particularly fiery. 

The Australian has actually appeared slightly calmer though as he has progressed through the tournament and reached his first ever Grand Slam final, but it appears that the pressure involved on Centre Court has seen him crack.
