On the same day controversial Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios was handed his final warning from the ATP, Nike paraded the 20-year-old with a galaxy of tennis stars at a promotional event in New York.

Kyrgios, who needs to stay out of trouble for six months to avoid a $US25,000 ($34,728) fine and a 28-day suspension from the ATP World Tour, joined Nike’s all-star cast of Rafael Nadal, Madison Keys, Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova,  Andre Agassi, Roger Federer, Grigor Dimitrov, John McEnroe, Genie Bouchard, and Pete Sampras at the event in New York.

Not deterred by his recent slips of the tongue, Kyrgios was miked-up for the event in Greenwich Village where he was in a jovial mood as he mixed with current and former tennis champions. He even got a free lesson from tennis legend Pete Sampras when he told him to: ‘behave, young man’.

The world no. 37 will be fined and suspended if he is commits “verbal or physical abuse” before February 24. Earlier this month he was heard on camera making lewd suggestions regarding Wawrinka’s girlfriend Donna Vekic and another Australian player, Thanasi Kokkinakis at the Rogers Cup in Montreal.
