because of a spat with an Australian team official, and for firing back at retired players who have offered Antworten

ROTTERDAM, Netherlands -- Controversial tennis player Nick Kyrgios will be free to participate in an NBA celebrity game in February after being released from his contract with an ATP event in the Netherlands. Dawson Knox Youth Jersey .Richard Krajicek, the 1996 Wimbledon champion and tournament director of the ABN Amro event in Rotterdam, posted a link to a statement on Twitter late Wednesday saying hed agreed to cancel the contract at the request of Kyrgios, the 21-year-old Australian who this week received an eight-week ban from the tennis tour for tanking a match in China.Krajicek said he made the decision so Kyrgios, an avid basketball fan, could attend the annual NBA All-Star weekend and play in a celebrity game on Feb. 19, the same day as the final in Rotterdam.He said Kyrgios manager had made the approach to withdraw several weeks ago and tournament organizers decided Tuesday to terminate the contract.We wanted to hold him to his contract, said Krajicek. You see what can happen when he is tired and has little meaning, as in China.We want a top tennis player seen on the court. If every week he is focused on tennis, he might be mentally burned out after six months. He needs an outlet.The ATP, which runs the mens tennis tour, suspended Kyrgios on Monday and fined him an additional $25,000 for conduct contrary to the integrity of the game following an investigation into his behavior during a second-round loss to German qualifier Mischa Zverev last week at the Shanghai Masters.The No. 12-ranked Kyrgios gave little effort during the 6-3, 6-1 defeat, and he already had been fined $16,500 for failing to give a full effort, unsportsmanlike conduct and verbal abuse of a spectator.He was banned until Jan. 15 -- a day before the start of the Australian Open, but the suspension could be reduced to three weeks if Kyrgios agrees to enter a plan of care under the direction of a sports psychologist.Kyrgios issued a statement Monday offering another apology for his conduct in Shanghai, saying he will be back in 2017.Its not the first time that Kyrgios has run into trouble with tennis authorities. Last year, he insulted Stan Wawrinka with crude remarks during a match in Montreal. He received $12,500 in fines as well as a suspended 28-day ban and a potential further $25,000 fine if he picked up any other major offenses over the following six months. His probation for that ended in February.Kyrgios attracted criticism for his performances at Wimbledon and at the US Open, for deciding not to play at the Olympics because of a spat with an Australian team official, and for firing back at retired players who have offered advice. Matt Milano Jersey . One game after a miserable showing in Oklahoma City, Gay tied a career high with 41 points and the Sacramento Kings cruised to a 114-97 victory at the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. Cody Ford Youth Jersey .Y. -- Paul Byron and Matt Stajan scored as the Calgary Flames started a five-game road trip with a 2-1 overtime win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday afternoon. .Y. -- The Buffalo Sabres have placed centre Cody Hodgson on injured reserve and recalled two players from their AHL affiliate in Rochester. SAN DIEGO -- Just after being named a late addition to the National League All-Star team in July, left-handed pitcher Drew Pomeranz talked about pitching at Petco Park in San Diego, which was hosting the All-Star Game.Who doesnt like pitching here? Pomeranz said. Its a beautiful ballpark. Its a great field that slightly favors a pitcher. The weather is as good as you can find in the major leagues. Its a great place to pitch.Of course, the 27-year-old was a Padre back then and was experiencing something of a breakthrough season.He was 8-7 in 17 starts at the All-Star break with a 2.47 ERA that ranked among the top 10 in the National League. He had 115 strikeouts in 102 innings with a .184 opponents batting average. He was 4-3 with a 2.64 ERA in eight starts at Petco Park.As he prepared for his first All-Star appearance, Pomeranz was looking forward to the second half of the season.Then, at the end of the All-Star break, Pomeranz was traded by the Padres to the Boston Red Sox for right-handed pitcher, Anderson Espinosa, who immediately became the top-rated prospect in the San Diego organization.Pomeranz wasnt done with Petco Park, though. On Monday afternoon, he will make his ninth start of the season at Petco Park -- this time pitching for the Red Sox.Coincidentally, Pomeranz will be matched against the pitcher -- right-hander Edwin Jackson -- whom the Padres tabbed to
