Nick Kyrgios settles legal case with Wimbledon fan he accused of being ‘drunk out of her mind,’ her lawyers say
After months of wrangling with the fan, Andy Murray, a lawsuit in which he accused her of making him lose his temper, and the world’s highest-earning Grand Slam winner, has finally been settled.

Andy was asked a few times if he was okay, before ultimately leaving the press conference and heading for his box.
A week later, he was involved in another incident when he took a run in a golf cart at a charity event in Toronto.
